Bug Description

Whenever booting an xubuntu 14.04 machine, a window popup comes up that says system program problem detected, and there is no way to make it stop doing this.

In Ubuntu there is a control panel for "Security and Privacy" with a Diagnostics tab that contains a checkbox that says "Send error reports to Canonical". If you uncheck that you'll stop receiving dialogs about crash reports.

Otherwise look for the file /etc/default/whoopsie and set "report_crashes=false".

That doesn't seem to exist in xubuntu

Also, that is not user discoverable. It used to be a part of the dialogue window itself as a checkbox.
