[Quick Tip] How to Disable Error Report Pop-up in Ubuntu 20.10

This is a beginner’s guide shows how to easily turn off the error report pop-up dialogs in Ubuntu 20.10 Groovy Gorilla.

In the development releases or newly released Ubuntu editions, there are always system error or application crash pop-ups.

1. Open terminal either from system application launcher or by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard.

2. When it opens, run command to edit the configuration file:

sudo -H gedit /etc/default/apport

3. When the file opens, simply change the line enabled=1 to enabled=0.

Finally save the file and done!
