Sorry, Ubuntu 12.04 has experienced internal error popup–workaround

I keep getting a popup that says “Ubuntu has experienced an internal error” without any noticeable other symptoms. I believe this is due to a bug in the program apport. Until it’s fixed I’ve disabled the program from running on startup. Open a terminal and:

gksu gedit /etc/default/apport

and then change “enabled=1” to “enabled=0”

and save the file. Then to get rid of the running program either reboot or:

sudo service apport stop
