how to get to ErrorTracker (apport) preferences in Xubuntu?

Asked by Jonathan on 2019-10-09

I recently had a crash in Xubuntu and would like to verify that it was reported successfully. I see from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ErrorTracker that in traditional Ubuntu, you can go to System Settings, Security & Privacy, Diagnostics, Show Previous Reports to view the status of crash reports. How do I get to this panel in Xubuntu?

From the command-line, I see:
$ ls -A -l /var/crash
total 2520
-rw-r----- 1 jdl whoopsie 2576768 Oct 9 06:58 _usr_lib_x86_64-linux-gnu_xfce4_panel_wrapper-2.0.1000.crash
-rw-rw-r-- 1 jdl whoopsie 0 Oct 9 07:00 _usr_lib_x86_64-linux-gnu_xfce4_panel_wrapper-2.0.1000.upload

Does this mean that it's been uploaded successfully? Also, how do I figure out from the contents of the .crash file, which process actually caused the crash?

If I understand correctly, that explains how to convert the crash dump
file into human-readable format.?? This information is useful, but not
being a developer, I have more general questions:

  * How do I find out whether the crash-dump was uploaded successfully
    or not?
  * How do I access the preferences control-panel described here?
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ErrorTracker

Can you help with this problem?
