Apport is the crash reporting service in Ubuntu.
- To disable it for your current login session:
$ sudo service apport stop
- To disable it from the next restart onwards, edit this file:
$ sudoedit /etc/default/apport
enabled=1 in the file to
enabled=0. You will need to restart for it to take effect.
- To enable back Apport, reverse the above steps.
Tried with: Apport 2.14.1 and Ubuntu 14.04
