Disable Whoopsie

Posted on Sunday March 13, 2016 / by Eric Potvin

Whoopsie is a service that sends a crash log to ubuntu. Althought very useful, it can be removed.

To disable the service, edit the file:

sudo vi /etc/default/whoopsie

and change the report_crashes parameter to false:

report_crashes=false

Remove Whoopsie

To completely remove the service, run this command:

sudo apt-get purge whoopsie
