How to find crash reports in Launchpad

Asked by BearT on 2012-06-02

On one computer running Precise there seems to be a problem with ghostscript and crash reports are (regularly) sent. From what I read I got the impression these crashes are simply added as new bugs in Launchpad, but I could not find entries that seem to be connected to the crash reports I've sent. Neither searching for gs or /usr/bin/gs or ghostscript did find anything useful nor did I find any information when sending the crash report that says where to find the bug entry.

Am I missing some information or search option, or is it really that hard to find your own crash reports?

There've been some changes regarding apport and whoopsie.

Anyway your account page doesn't display any bug report assigned to ghostscript.

If there're crash reports in /var/crash they can be submitted with apport by right click context menu.
Or via terminal:
ubuntu-bug ghostscript
ubuntu-bug <path_of_crash_file>

Thanks for the explanations. There are crashes in /var/crash/ and i tried to upload them (again) using
ubuntu-bug <path_of_crash_file>
as you explained and the crash report had been sent again (as far as I can tell) but I still could not find it associated to my account.

But by reading the details of the crash report I could find entries with the same or a similar name, so I think at least I found a valid and open ticket, that seems to be describing my problem. So I'm now following #888898.

Still I'd like to suggest a confirmation message after a crash report has been sent containing a link to the launchpad entry generated of an error message otherwise. At the moment the window simply closes, so it might be possible that sending the reports failed (though I have some *.crash and some *.uploaded files in /var/crash/).

Anyway, I consider this question done since I found a ticket that I can follow.
Thanks for your help.
