Bug Description

I noticed that Wxbanker ahs no support for apport so I wrote the apport stuff for you. This is an example of a bug from apport. I have attached two files.
/usr/share/apport/package-hooks/ is where source_wxbanker.py goes.
/etc/apport/crashdb.conf.d is where wxbanker-crashdb.conf goes.

You can put them in those locations and run ubuntu-bug wxbanker in the terminal or by pressing alt+f2 and test it. Feel free to use them in wxbanker.

Wow, that's really awesome, thanks! I will attempt to package and incorporate this for 0.8.1. If you happen to know of a packaging example to look at that ships these files, let me know, but if I recall it is fairly straightforward.

Hopefully it will help with getting better bug reports and feedback. Would you happen to know if it will still allow bugs to be reported from PPA installations, and if I can grab other information as well, ideally all of env which is what allowed me to figure out the global menu bar bug.

No problem it works for ppa's as thats what filed this bug with, I will be working out how to package these myself so if i get it done I will post the debian rules file for you to look at. As for "env" I am unsure what you mean it is possible to attach most things to a bug report with apport. Although I am rather new to it myself.

It works, thanks! I put the two hook files in a "hooks" directory in my source root, and then in the packaging I added a "debian/wxbanker.install" (the name should correspond to your package name in debian/control), and added these two lines:

hooks/source_wxbanker.py /usr/share/apport/package-hooks/
hooks/wxbanker-crashdb.conf /etc/apport/crashdb.conf.d/

so it is just a simple file where you specify the source and destination. Very cool stuff, this will make wxBanker much more useful, thanks again!
