I don't believe anything shows any differently for secure+EFI boot, (vs efi) so it'll use identical testcases as EFI.
Therefore, I believe the testcase should provide instructions to:
- Check to see if the target drive has any mounted partitions
- Unmount any partitions if found
…before launching the installer.

I just booted [19.10] daily on vaiocrap & noticed an OEM option at grub; maybe we should have testcase(s) for that??
(i'm starting EFI set)
They will be new testcases; the files currently are all local (diffs online were a form of backup, though created at that point as I wanted two to speed creation of the fourth one via copy/paste); I haven't yet done the vm install to verify fourth is good. I don't yet understand the upload steps which is why they're all local - but I'll/we'll get there.
Thanks Walter & Dan too.

:) I didn't think of swap, and that would apply to all systems I tested on.
and easy to deal with in a text line; I'm thinking we ask testers to leave a comment on that one
has the ~/.cache/Calamares/session.log file.
I hadn't exited the installer at that stage, it was grabbed when it was at the
- install alongside
- replace partition
- manual partitioning
question, ie. no erase disk & install option provided. Single 80gb disk; partitions for /, swap & /home only

Our current (testcase 1701) is written for "Erase Disk" however it doesn't always show.

On hp dx6129 using Lubuntu 19.04 x86
(I don't have 19.10 on a x86)
Sat, Aug 3
I ran the installer a few times & made notes (largely a comparison between 19.10's install and the manual), right now I have no idea where those notes are (pad.ubuntu.com as I recall, but i'll have to find the email or whatever breadcrumb I left for myself to locate it). I also downloaded existing testcases and then looked at alternate editors as I felt my usual editor would be error prone (I didn't like how it appeared).

Opened k3b & created a favorites.k3b file with some my local mp3 directory (data project). Exited k3b.
Using pcmanfm-qt found the favorites.k3b file, it opened correctly in k3b

Your response got a HUGE howl of laughter when I read it @apt-ghetto, followed very quickly by the reddest face possible....

I just had a really good QA-test using 19.10 daily.

Tested on vaio (uefi) & looks good. (for some reason it's grub is reporting 19.04; a qa-test 19.10 install pre-release and I don't know why, but it's my only uefi box and I hadn't noticed this before).

Quick Note: Whilst I'm too slow for useful testing, I have noted the https://manual.lubuntu.me/F/keyboard_shortcuts.html as it stands now will require change, eg. S-A-Left|Right no longer do the SendToDesktopToLeft ...

FYI: Sorry I should have responded months ago (I'm very forgetful), but the smallest screen I can find is 1024x768 for actual hardware testing (according to online specs)

Lubuntu 18.04 owns the MBR so it's run in lubuntu at term (sudo update-grub)..
I made it so d755 doesn't see opensuse during update-grub (easy; it only seems to see it if btrfs partition is mounted) & re-ran update-grub and rebooted. Options are Ubuntu, Advanced.., Memtest, Memtest.., wNT/2000/xp alas no bird-logo is there
I didn't notice the humming bird logo on any sorry; looking back on it's there for vaio (uefi), but not on bios d755, d780 or dx6120 (I didn't look on d960 as I'm using it!), but Yes I do have multiple installs of *nix on all except vaio (d755 has ubuntu & opensuse leap; others have multiple versions of Ubuntu).
From what I can see all are set gfxmode=auto (in /boot/grub/grub.cfg) with #GRUB_GFXMODE= lines all commented out in /etc/default/grub which I believe to be defaults.

tested on machine (specs), arch, bios|eufi, host (lubuntu)

I've watched the sony vaio ultracrap using the installed up-to-date 19.10 system, but have not noticed any issues with battery condition drop. The device mostly sits unused with occasional checks of battery status, or less occasional use as I dislike the keyboard+touchpad.

my lubuntu iso was updating (19.10 daily now) so booted
https://cdimage.debian.org/mirror/cdimage/weekly-live-builds/amd64/iso-hybrid/debian-live-testing-amd64-lxqt.iso [2019-04-22 06:17] on my lenovo thinkpad sl510 (c2d-t6570, 2gb ram, i915), it showed battery at 38% and [somewhat slowly] dropping as I played .. 37% .. 36% (I also had 'battery.info' screen open as it's easier to read), then i closed the battery.info window, and it seemed to stay at 36% for longer than I expected, ... then after a long while I noticed the change to red battery and it was 9% -- i don't believe it was me forgetting to watch battery drop.. (but it could be battery.health issue or yes i lost-track-of-time..)
