I was having an issue after a game caused a GPU hang that forced me to have to do a hard reset and I was having a scrambled display issue, but I fixed that by switching to sna acceleration. But now every few seconds a message comes up saying "System Program Problem"

Here is what the window says.

Sorry, Ubuntu 12.04 has experienced an internal error




xserver-xorg-video-intel2:2.21.15~precise~ppa1.1 [origin:LP-PPA-glasen-intel-driver]

Do you need help with fixing the graphical issue you had, or do you need help with getting apport to stop spamming you with error reports? – Paul Tanzini Feb 13 '14 at 14:36
Well since I switched to sna acceleration the weird graphics thing stopped. I read that apport likes to do what it is doing. Also another problem. My laptop trackpad is not functioning. I can only use the mouse connectected to my USB. – Disloyalpick Feb 13 '14 at 14:48
If the graphics are working fine and you just want apport to stop bugging you, you can safely remove it. sudo apt-get remove apport in the terminal should work just fine. It's not going to hurt you at all; many people remove apport on the other community spins like L/X/Kubuntu because it just doesn't stop. – Paul Tanzini Feb 13 '14 at 14:51
It would be appropriate to make another question for your trackpad. I would check to see if you have a button that turns it off and on, and try that first. – Paul Tanzini Feb 13 '14 at 15:03
Those are bugs. You should report them to launchpad – Braiam Feb 13 '14 at 18:33
