How To Get Rid Of Internal System Error Apport Popups In Ubuntu


Sorry, Ubuntu 12.04 has experienced an internal error

Apport is a debugging tool that automatically generates crash reports. In the final Ubuntu 12.04 release, Apport is enabled by default (unlike in the previous Ubuntu versions) and at least on my system, I keep getting "Sorry, Ubuntu 12.04 has experienced an internal error" popups, which can't be reported, a few times a day (Apport bug already reported).

To get rid of these annoying Apport popups, you can disable Apport, especially since most of the time there are no visible errors / crashes anyway. Sure, this won't solve the actual errors, but at least you won't get those frequent Apport "internal system error" dialogs anymore.

To disable Apport, you need to edit "/etc/default/apport" with a text editor such as Gedit (as root):
gksu gedit /etc/default/apport
and change "enabled" from "1" to "0", then save the file.

You can always re-enable it later on if you want, by changing "enabled" from "0" back to "1", or you can enable Apport temporarily, using the following command:
sudo service apport start force_start=1
