Stop the annoying ' System problem detected ' warning in Ubuntu

6:32 PM , 0 Comments

Do you get the annoying ' System problem detected ' or ' Sorry, Ubuntu 12.04 has experienced an internal error' warning in ubuntu ? It really pissed me off everytime I powered on my system.

Do you wanna know how to disable this troublesome nuisance ? Good , then here is your solution :

This thing is caused by a program called apport, which pops up the warning whenever there is a bug found in your system. This apport is used to collect the information about the bugs and then send it to Canonical for analysis. However, this proves to be a quite a nuisance for many of them.

Here is how to disable it :

  1. Open Terminal and type the following :
  2. sudo gedit /etc/default/apport
  3. Change the last line of the file from 'enabled=1' to 'enabled=0'
  4. Save and close the file. 
  5. Now type the following in the terminal :
  6. sudo service apport stop
Thats it. Now you can restart the system and no more 'System problem detected' popups
