Ubuntu 16.04 is a large distribution, not only for its stability but also for its features and software, but sometimes part of this software is usually quite annoying. I mean your service CONTRIBUTION. Sometimes a program of ours or a browser configuration can cause Ubuntu to have an internal problem and it does that after finding it we can notify the Ubuntu team.
This service is known as APPORT. This is usually helpful though there are also times when it is heavy and annoying. And it all starts with a small window that tells you » a problem has been detected in a system program«, The window will surely ring.
The bug report window can be very heavy on Ubuntu 16.04
There is a way to remove this annoying window from our Ubuntu, But consists of disable Contribution from our system, Which will make the window no longer appear during all the sessions we have with our Ubuntu but on the other hand, the bug or problem report will still be here and will not be fixed. So we will have to choose between disabling Apport, holding on and reporting the bug report or fixing the problem ourselves, which is more difficult.
In order to deactivate the Apport service, we first open a terminal and write the following:
sudo service apport stop
That way it will stop bothering us in the session. If we want it to be permanently disabled, we must write the following:
sudo gedit /etc/default/apport
And in Enabled, change the 1 for the 0 being thus:
If, on the other hand, we want to re-enable it, we must change the previous one, but if we want to enable it temporarily, we must write the following in the terminal:
sudo service apport start force_start=1
With these simple steps we managed to keep the annoying bug report from appearing during the session and not bothering us with its windows. Simple right?
