A demo version of Andres Rodriguez’s GSoC work on a new GTK front-end for Ubuntu Development testing application TestDrive is now available for brave users to try out.
User should note that the Front-end is ‘only a demo and still contains lots of bugs’.
What is test drive?
I’ll let the Test Drive Launchpad blurb explain: -
“TestDrive is a project that makes it very easy to download and run the latest daily Ubuntu development snapshot in a virtual machine. Actually, it can be configured to download and run any URL-access ISO in a virtual machine.
But the primary goal is to provide a very simple method for allowing non-technical Ubuntu users to test and provide feedback on the current Ubuntu release under development.”
Test the new frontend
Currently users have to install two PPA’s in-order to test: –
- sudo add-apt-repository ppa:testdrive/ppa
- sudo add-apt-repository ppa:testdrive-gtk/ppa
- sudo apt-get install testdrive testdrive-gtk
Once install you can Launchd TestDrive via Applications > System Tools > TestDrive GTK Front-end
