I am developing a Qt app in Fedora 31 using the default GNOME wayland session and I am very sorry to see the state of Qt in this configuration.
1) qt creator crashes often (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1773356) the crash report tool does not seem to help
2) drag & drop does not work in Qt creator (and in no other Qt app) (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1774762 and https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-80303)
3) main window geometry cannot be restored when the application restarts (https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-80612)
I think GNOME / Wayland / Qt it is just not ready and should not be offered as the default desktop session for Fedora.
If I force Qt to use X11 emulations, things are much better.
Probably Qt is responsible (but in the bug reports someone says that KDE / Wayland works well), and GNOME is not Qt, but there are so many Qt apps, that sending new users to a non working environment re-enforces the fact that "just works" is not true in Linux.
Last week, I was to participate in a "Zoom" meeting for a charity that
I'm involved in. I have the needed software on my rarely-used windows-7
box. But I could not complete the windows-7 login (some problem with a
windows-7 service). I've since found there is a "Zoom" client for
Fedora. "dnfdragora" does not find anything for it. But I found a web
page that I hope has what I need. I've downloaded the package
("zoom_x86_64.rpm"), and I've downloaded a "Public Key"
("package-signing-key.pub"). The web site from which I've downloaded
these also has a line:
Key fingerprint: [some 40 hex digit number]
1. Do the 2 files need to be in a specific place to do the install? If
2. Do I need to be "root" to do the install?
3. What do I do with the "Key fingerprint"?
4. How do I do the install (preferably using "dnf")?
Something on sourceforge has been recommended to me, but I try to
stick to things that dnf can install. Surely there must be some Fedora-
native ebook reader!

Remember I know little (precious little!) of where up is.
I have been using ethernet up to now. I went to enable the wifi, to see
no wifi listed.
It has been too long since I have had to do this troubleshooting. Can
some point me to what I need to look at to find what the Fedora thinks
is the wifi?
k....I'm just gonna ask this:
Why is it now that when I get notifications for updates I'm being
prompted to "restart & Install"?......
W T H!????
Is this WINDOWS!?.......I have enjoyed the fact that I could update my
system and use my computer until I was ready to shutdown / restart at my
leisure. Now?....there's a funky button up top of the Software Updates
(after its found packages to update) that says "Restart &
Install"?......is there ANY way possible to TURN THIS CRAP OFF!!?? Is
there some config file I can alter that will make this GO AWAY!? (I know
I'm acting like a lunatic, but I was in the IT field since the Windows
NT 4.0 days...and after finding Linux?...I have enjoyed NOT having to
restart after updates.) Please Fedora Admins.....Fedora Magical
Unicorns......Fedora High Council Wizards....PLEASE find a way to make
this just GO AWAY!?....
I'm receiving emails from a lot of customers that use Microsoft
Sometime I receive the emails with winmail.dat attached.
Evolution is unable to display it correctly.
If I use ktnef to open the attachement I have other problems.
Some of the problems found on ktnef are solved with ytnef.
I had look at google solutions and I found that evolution can be
compiled with tnef plugin enabled, but it seems Fedora don't do it.
Can I understand why, and if there is a simple way to obtain tnef
support working on the box with Evolution?
I'm using Fedora 31 with Evolution 3.34.2
I have my /home partition on a 2TB HDD drive about half full. Should be
doing regular backups but not in the habit.
What is better?
A. Purchase a second 2TB to create a Raid1 mirror or
B. Purchase a second 4TB drive for backup purposes.
If case B, should I get a USB3.0 adapter or similar so that I could just
plug the HDD, let it do the backup and unplug and store it? Or is it better
to install it on another networked pc and do it through the network?
Is there a better, easier, less troublesome option to keep the data safe
that does not involve the cloud?

I want to install fedora in dual boot with windows 10 on a dell laptop
(latitude 3500) on which windows is preinstalled.
I firstly boot on an usb stick with Gparted in order to resize the
partitions but Gparted doesn't "see" the SSD...
I disabled the secure boot, but nothing has changed, Gparted sees only
its own partition and nothing else.
I have the last version of Gparted ( 1.0.0-5).
Could anybody help me? I don't know anything of windows which I never

This APPARENTLY solves the defaultuser0 problem. YMMV
I found this from a google search.
When you get that message, try restarting a few times to see if you will
let you setup a proper account.
If not, do the following at the sign in screen.
Hold down the shift key on your keyboard while clicking the Power button
on the screen.
Continue to hold down the shift key while clicking Restart.
Continue to hold down the shift key until the Advanced Recovery Options
Click Reset this PC
Click Remove Everything (I'd be careful at this step)
Fully clean the drive (Same here)
Once you get into your machine again, you an un-encrypt the disk by
turning off bitlocker, then you can resize.
On a new fedora 31 installed this week and updated i am unable to get
Thunderbird-68.3.1 to display a message list using 24 hour time.
The Date and Time Regional setting can not be changed from US English
to und as expected. I've tried downgrading Thunderbird, and rebooted the
system, nothing has helped.
This computer, with the same settings, displays the time in 24 hour format.
I haven't been able to work this out so perhaps someone has a suggestion ...
