apport question

Postby seasoned_geek » Fri Jul 08, 2016 9:12 am

The apport crash reporting does not seem to work for me. I see you are using the Ubuntu system and I am a registered user there. Do I also need to create an account for this distro as well? There were numerous crash notifications right after install.

Thanks,

Ubuntu will only respond by saying you should contact the maintainer/forum of your forked distribution. Apport seems to be buggy anyway - on another distro I moderate for a fellow moderator advised to disable apport as it is as much a problem in itself as it is in attempting to report issues!

"Disable Ubuntu Apport error messages

To disable the annoying Apport error message that Ubuntu has a problem and needs to contact Ubuntu, simply paste the following terminal command:


Code: Select all
gksudo gedit /etc/default/apport


Gedit will open up and you need to change this:

# set this to 0 to disable apport, or to 1 to enable it
# you can temporarily override this with
# sudo service apport start force_start=1
enabled=1

to this:

# set this to 0 to disable apport, or to 1 to enable it
# you can temporarily override this with
# sudo service apport start force_start=1
enabled=0

All you do is replace the 1 with a 0 (Zero).

Click on "Save" and then close Gedit. (There will most likely be a second page, all you need to do is close that first and don't save it before you try and save the main document!)"
