Anyone else seeing this.

Pop up says a problem. Password entered. Click continue and it's gone. No bug report or any other messages. I can see .uploaded file in /var/crash

I think It might be the same in 12.10 too.

Yep.

I assumed it was the new reporting system talked about at UDS.

This has been par for the course for the last several weeks. Bug reporting is at a very pernickity stage atm.

Any idea where the reports are going if at all.

If it is the error tracker, an application called Whoopsie sends the report to a Canonical server called Daisy. :)

@philinux,

I think that there is a thread on this here in the forums. We were talking about exactly this... sort of like a deja-vu here... :)

I believe that was added in Ubuntu 12.04. Crash reports go to https://errors.ubuntu.com/ without the need to fill out a bug report. But there's still a lot about what apport is doing that I don't understand.

Unfortunately, people that aren't using to seeing notifications of crashes got the mistaken idea that Ubuntu 12.04 LTS was less stable than 11.10.

Gotcha.

So when does a launchpad bug report get sent?

I've manually installed activity-log-manager to get the reports sent to canonical.

I've also seen some users assume that apport is malware, because the window seems to be too ordinary. :-D

So , again , 'no heads up' and what I do (at times) is reboot, thinking that there has been a crash, and interupting the report being sent. so, perhaps after login it continues to send the bug report?

I am not saying this is an ineffectual way of gathering information but the 'no heads up' kind of leaves us in the dark.

Only when using 'ubuntu-bug <whatever>'

If one chooses they can cause crashers to open LP reports thru a config edit, never did find out if that is currently discouraged though I guess it is..
(there aren't that many crashes that I've seen to date so somewhat a moot point?

I'm guessing that the number of "bug" reports could drop drastically.
