    Apport dissappears when clicking Continue. No bug report

    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.

    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.

    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.
