Apologies for the OT, but I have a cheap smartwatch that is conceptually bluetooth accessible and also charges via a USB dongle. I would like to access it from my Fedora 30 system and see if I can change settings, get information from my desktop.
I use blueman-manager to pair the device. The device is paired fine in the sense that it shows up on the blueman-manager and also the connected icon is visible on the device, however what do I do to access the files? Also, when I go away and come back, the manager says that it is connected, but the connected icon on the device is not visible anymore so I can not make anything out of this connection, or if it was even legit in the first place.
Secondly, when I plugin through USB, the battery starts charging as it should, but lsusb shows up nothing beyond what it does when it is not plugged in. Is it possible to access this smartwatch through USB?
I am totally new to playing with this so would like some advice/suggestions if possible.
Many thanks and best wishes,
On booting, I get a pause of around 90 seconds, and the following

So where is this coming from? The mention of "hibernation" in the third
message above is curious, as I'm not using hibernation.
I am running Fedora 30 x86_64.
After upgrading wine from v. 4.5.1 to v. 4.13.5 (and wine-mono from v.
4.8.0 to v. 4.9.0), from the Fedora's updates repo, the Adobe Digital
Editions 2.0.1 stopped working.
Does anyone else experienced this problem (and found a workaround)?
Dunno when and why this started recently, but I'm hit hard by segfaults
taking down GNOME Shell.
Bugzilla knows tons of duplicate bug reports about it, dating back to
OsLookupColor(): Segmentation fault at address 0x...
Has anyone seen this earlier and knows a workaround perhaps?
F30 isn't usable anymore due to those crashes.
Dear Fedora Community Members,
I am a master student based in the University of Leeds (UK), currently
conducting a research in regards to investigating how open source software
community culture, governance and structure, motivation of participation
influence the innovation capability of OSS community. I found Fedora
community is very active and supportive with members around the world,
which makes it perfect for this research. I am writing to ask if you could
help to take part in this research for more accurate results.
This research data is to be collected via questionnaire with the anonymous
The questionnaire should take you 5-10 minutes to complete. Your
participation is very important to disclose the relationship between
community culture, governance structure, motivation of participation and
the innovation capability of OSS community.
I would very much appreciate if you could help to participate this
research, and if you have any questions about the research, I am happy to
answer, just e-mail me on bn18xg(a)leeds.ac.uk. Thanks a lot!

How can I bring the guest OS up? Where is Vagrant looking up the names?
