bug#1: [EngineFactory] Unsupported input engine 'test'

Post by viccuad »

Hi all,

I got a bug[1] in the DrumGizmo Debian package about the `test` engine being unsupported,
by a user that read `man drumgizmo` and saw `test` as a listed `--inputengine`.

AFAIU, the `test` engine is only used for tests in `make check`, so it shouldn't be usable from
the CLI drumgizmo, and the bug is just referring to a slip in the docs.

Is this correct?

Thanks in advance, and cheers :)

It works just fine here...

The test input engine is not for make check but rather for generating randomized notes when testing a new drumkit or if you want to benchmark test your system.

I am not sure why the user cannot use it? Was configure perhaps run with "--disable_input_test"?

Aah... I just realised that our last release indeed didn't enable the test input module.
It has been fixed in git for some time and will be included in the 0.9.11 release.
