As you may know, when somethings breaks in unity, you get the following error: ‘Sorry, Ubuntu 13.10 has experienced an internet error’

If you want not to be bothered again by this windows / error notification, you can easily disable it by setting the enable value to 0, in the etc/default/apport file.

The easiest way to do this via commandline is:

$ sudo sh -c 'echo "enabled=0" > /etc/default/apport'

Now that apport will not be enabled at startup anymore, stop the service in order not to get bothered by it again, until the first reboot:

$ sudo service apport stop

If you want to temporary enable apport, do:

$ sudo service apport start force_start=1
