Ubuntu Linux has this annoying crash report dialog.

linux apport crash dialog
Linux crash dialog apport

To disable it, just uninstall it.

# remove the annoying crash report program
sudo apt-get purge apport

also, uninstall whoopsie.

# uninstall whoopsie
sudo apt-get purge whoopsie

whoopsie is Ubuntu's Error Reporting background process. It collects data fram Apport, and can send them to the company that runs Ubuntu.
