USB Keyboard Tests

You need to perform the following USB Keyboard manual tests.

  • Plug or unplug test

  • Usability test

  • Internationalization test

To Perform the Plug or Unplug Test

Before You Begin

Before starting the automated USB keyboard certification, unplug the keyboard to be certified from the SUT then plug it back. Repeat this test 10 times.

  • Start the Oracle HCTS 5.8 user interface.

Expected Result

After this step, Oracle HCTS can detect the keyboard to be certified.

To Perform the Usability Test

  1. Open a few applications in the Oracle Solaris OS.

    Log in to the Oracle Solaris OS and open applications such as gnome-terminal (JDS), gedit (JDS) or firefox (JDS).

  2. Verify the functionality of each key in the keyboard.

    Ensure that every key and key combination on the keyboard are operating as expected. Also, make sure that the right key events are received when you press the keys.


    Note - Pay attention to any keys that do not exist in the US keyboard layout or those mapped differently than the US keyboard layout.

Expected Result

Each key generates the correct character onscreen or correct key event.

To Perform the Internationalization Test

  1. Switch as the root user.
  2. Set the keyboard type and layout by typing the following command.
    # /usr/X11R6/bin/xorgconfig
  3. Restart XServer.
  4. Open a few applications in the Oracle Solaris OS.

    Log in to the Oracle Solaris OS and open some applications such as gnome-terminal(JDS), gedit(JDS) or firefox(JDS).

  5. Verify the functionality of each key in the keyboard.

    Ensure that every key and key combination on the keyboard is operating as expected. Also, make sure that the right key events are received when you press the keys.

Expected Result

In Step 2, when you restart Xserver, no layout error is reported. Characters specific to the keyboard layout are shown correctly in dtlogin.


Note - Ensure that the language selected in dtlogin corresponds with your keyboard layout.

In Step 4, each key generates the correct character on screen or correct key event.
