Disable "Send error reports to canonical" in command line (trusty)

Asked by ubuntu-tester on 2014-10-01

Hello everybody,

For privacy reasons, I have to disable "Send error reports to canonical" (All Settings > Security & Privacy > Diagnostics > Send error reports to canonical) on several computers with Ubuntu 14.04.

To do this, I would like to use a script.

I Followed this tutorial : http://ubuntu.aspcode.net/view/635400140124705175156424/how-do-i-enable-or-disable-apport
and also I removed "apport" and "whoopsie" packages, but "Send error reports to canonical" is still present.

Anyone know how to disable/remove "Send error reports to canonical" using a script (gsettings for example ...), stopping a service, or removing a package ?

Thank you in advance and good night everybody ;)

Hello,

Using "sudo find -P / -xdev -cmin -5" command, i found this file:

/etc/default/whoopsie
---
[General]
report_crashes=true
report_metrics=true
---

So I guess this feature does not work if Whoopsie is removed (this file is modified on my system when I enable/disable "Send error reports to canonical" while whoopsie is purged).

Can anyone confirm?

Thanks and good night ;)

Removing whoopsie solved my problem.
