I have an error with apport that has persisted over Ubuntu 11.10, 12.04 and 12.10. I have reported a bug but this is only happening in one of my systems, only in one account and not when I run it with
sudo, so it is hard that anybody will look at this problem.
So my question is if anybody knows what configuration files of apport may be causing this error (I put the full description below). I'm reluctant to create a new account and move all my stuff there just because of this, it must be something in my user account that causes this error but I haven't been able to identify any apport specific file in my home directory.
Here is the description of the error that apport gives:
Whenever I run anything related to apport (ubuntu-bug, etc), it aborts with a window that says
nothing to repeat. If I run it from the terminal I get:
