[Bug 1482433] [NEW] ubunt-bug aborts


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

In a lot of places we are told to use ubunt-bug to trip apport to send
bugged information somewhere. When you use the said app, it panics and
exits out, not reporting anything. It produces no error code.

I tried two different ways to report a kde-session bug and got thrown
back to a terminal one time and told I was using non-standard X packages
another time, which is an outright LIE as I am using kubuntu live
media(14.04.3). Users will find this application difficult to use and
therefore either not use it or not know where to turn to file bugs.

Launchpad is suggested but filing a launchpad bug is bugged in
itself.(another bug report) Then there is the method using
errors.ubuntu.com instead of launchpad. The reporting method and such
needs to be more centralized and standardized.There is no reason why
errors have to sent in seperately, they can be attached to launchpad
reports. Asking a user to reboot after updating is pointless on a live
cd. It accomplishes nothing.
