Occasionally I receive an error report from Ubuntu with the option to send in the details of the error. However, if the error was generated from a non-official package (local installation or PPA) I cannot just click submit to send in the error.

How can I copy all the error details so that I can manually submit them to the appropriate project?

If apport has tried to collect the data from the crash, then look in

/var/crash

Alternatively you might look to see if there is a -dbg package for the application.

Try running the app from a terminal with -h - see if there is a debug option

Exaile for instance has a debug option, which can be run with

exaile --debug

Perhaps talk to whoever the application comes from.

  • /var/crash contained a useful file, but with much more info than in the splash screen ("Sorry, Ubuntu 16.04 has experienced an internal error”). Dec 4 '16 at 10:59
