Ubuntu 13.10 Quick Tip: How to Disable Apport Error Reporting

Ubuntu error reporting

If something goes wrong in Ubuntu Unity, you usually get the error dialog which says ‘Sorry, Ubuntu 13.10 has experienced an internet error’

This helps Ubuntu gather information about issues and create a fix for them. If it annoys you, this tutorial will show you how to easily turn it off.

To get started, press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open terminal. When it opens, run command to edit the config file:

sudo gedit /etc/default/apport

Change the value to 0 to disable (1 to enable) this feature.

That’s it. Enjoy!
