Every time I close Darktable 1.0.4 in Ubuntu 12.04, Unity crashes, and then restarts.

My question is, since Darktable has been installed via PPA, would I report the bug to the Unity team or the Application team?

I understand this may be too localised, but am struggling to find an answer to this one.

Is it Darktable that makes it crash at all? could be something else. – Uri Herrera Jun 22 '12 at 5:37
It seems to be. It's the only application that crashes Unity when I close it. – Switchkick Jun 22 '12 at 6:43

Note: In general, PPA applications are not supported by Ubuntu/Canonical in any official way. (They are personal package archives, after all :-)

In your case, since it appears that only one particular PPA application is causing this problem, I highly recommend filing a bug with them first. After following their instructions for troubleshooting (if any), if the developers recommend filing a bug against Unity, certainly do so.

If you had more than a few different applications crashing Unity, you could consider filing a bug directly against it, but not in this situation.
