I experience instability with my Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. I receive messages

Sorry, Ubuntu 12.04 has experiences an internal error. If you notice further problems, try restarting the computer

The messages show up a few times per day but they not associated with the same application. Today I have one with /usr/share/screenlets/screenlets-pack-basic/Sysmonitor/SysmonitorScreenlet.py and another one is /usr/bin/vlc. I would like to solve the problem, but at first I want to save the details of each warning to track underlying problem.

I cannot find any way to save details of this warning and cannot find, if they are saved somewhere on the system as a log. I cannot highlight few lines at ones, and if I try to copy a line, it does not work.

Is there a way to save the details of these errors?

    If I am not wrong, the crash logs are stored in /var/crash. – jokerdino Nov 11 '12 at 14:10

These logs can be transported and saved. If if references a data file, it may be of help to save that file for reference.

  • You.. you just didn't do that. – jokerdino Nov 11 '12 at 14:46
  • @jokerdino I did... But I will always make it community wiki and remove it once needed. – nanofarad Nov 11 '12 at 14:56
