watcher.sh errors

Hi,
I've looked in my syslog today and noticed that I get an error every second from the watcher.sh.

Feb 13 19:29:24 Velvet watcher.sh[19792]: /usr/bin/watcher.sh: Zeile 41: echo: Schreibfehler: Kein passendes Gerät gefunden.
Feb 13 19:29:24 Velvet kernel: [33701492.540613] configfs-gadget dwc3.0.auto: failed to start g1: -19

the first one means 'write error, no device found'

I don't really understand what the watcher is doing.
Something with USB and the GPIO?
It's probably from this package:
https://github.com/arduino/adbd
https://github.com/arduino/adbd/blob/master/watcher.sh

Can someone help me to fix this and explain me what the watcher is doing or if I even need the watcher?
I'm using ubilinux 4.

Thanks!

    Hi @Tone

    It is to manage the use of a serial terminal/interface over the microUSB port.

    Unfortunately ubilinux4.0 is not supported anymore from the company providing the OS, so I would suggest to switch to a similar supported distribution (Ubuntu)

    Thank you!

    Ok, I don‘t need that, so I‘ve stopped the service.

    Yes I‘m planning to switch to Ubuntu, but I will wait till 20.04. Will you release your custom kernel for this version?

    Yes we will and we are glad that for this release Canonical have chosen the LTS Kernel 5.4

    We plan to release it in Q3.
