Summary

KWin was quite good in ensuring that you don't need to install by
passing paths to the tests. The new way is much nicer, so code is
adjusted for the new way. Also if we require a newer ECM in future we
need to support the new way.

No guarantee that the tests don't pick something up from the system env,
that needs more testing. Also I couldn't verify all tests, for unknown
reasons my system refuses to run any OpenGL tests (that issue was already
present before).

I figured out why my GL tests are failing: it's XWayland not starting, so totally unrelated. If I use a vgem device the XWayland starts.

autotests/integration/kwin_wayland_test.h
177

That one doesn't work yet. It gives the wrong path, so system installed is picked.

Made QT_QPA_PLATFORM_PLUGIN_PATH work, verified with strace that correct plugin gets loaded

  • changed add_test to newer syntax so that tests are found after a clean build
  • kglobalaccel still loads wrong plugin (might need fixing in kglobalaccel)

  • Adjusted library path so that tests prefer what is in build dir
  • set LIBRARY_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY for globalaccel and aurorae, so that they are picked from bin dir
  • Verified both with strace
