Sometimes after ubuntu installation we may find certain notification box saying "System program problem detected". This is because the notification is enabled in the apport file in the system. You can enable/disable this notification. All you have to do is to edit the /etc/default/apport file and change the enable value to 0 to disable the notification and if you want enable this change this back.

You can follow the below steps to disable this notification.

  1. Open a terminal
  2. Type sudo vi /etc/default/apport
  3. Now change the value of enabled from 1 to 0.
  4. Save this file and reboot the system.

Now the apport is disabled and you won't get any further notification about system problems. You can edit the above mentioned file thats is '/etc/default/apport' file to either enable or disable this notification.
