Disable Apport

Posted on Sunday March 13, 2016 / by Eric Potvin

Apport is commonly known as the system that intercepts crashes right when happen the first time. It gathers potentially useful information about the crash and the OS environment.

If apport is currently active you can disable it.

sudo vi /etc/default/apport

and change the enabled to 0:

# set this to 0 to disable apport, or to 1 to enable it
# you can temporarily override this with
# sudo service apport start force_start=1

Removing apport

If you really need to get rid of apport, you can remove it by executing this command:

sudo apt-get purge apport
