Resume Wikipedia de Ubuntu

Ubuntu (prononciation [u.bun.tu], « ou-boun-tou » en français) est un système d’exploitation open source basé sur la distribution Linux Debian. Son nom provient d’un ancien mot bantou qui signifie « je suis ce que je suis grâce à ce que nous sommes tous ». Dans le même ordre d’esprit, les utilisateurs sont encouragés à étudier son fonctionnement, le modifier, l’améliorer et enfin de le redistribuer. En 2011, une estimation donne plus de 25 millions d’utilisateurs des différentes versions pour ordinateurs.
En 2013, Canonical, la compagnie qui développe Ubuntu, présente Ubuntu Touch et explique dans une vidéo qu’Ubuntu vise à être disponible pour tout un écosystème incluant les télévisions, les smartphones, et les tablettes. Le gestionnaire de bureau Unity, comme son nom l’indique, vise à unifier l’expérience utilisateur sur chacun des supports.

apport-bug reports problems to your distribution’s bug tracking system,
using Apport to collect a lot of local information about your system to
help the developers to fix the problem and avoid unnecessary ques‐
tion/answer turnarounds.

You should always start with running apport-bug without arguments,
which will present a list of known symptoms. This will generate the
most useful bug reports.

If there is no matching symptom, you need to determine the affected
program or package yourself. You can provide a package name or program
name to apport-bug, e. g.:

apport-bug firefox
apport-bug /usr/bin/unzip

In order to add more information to the bug report that could help the
developers to fix the problem, you can also specify a process ID

$ pidof gnome-terminal
$ apport-bug 5139

As a special case, to report a bug against the Linux kernel, you do not
need to use the full package name (such as linux-
image-2.6.28-4-generic); you can just use

apport-bug linux

to report a bug against the currently running kernel.

Finally, you can use this program to report a previously stored crash
or bug report:

apport-bug /var/crash/_bin_bash.1000.crash
apport-bug /tmp/apport.firefox.332G9t.apport

Bug reports can be written to a file by using the –save option or by
using apport-cli.

apport-bug detects whether KDE or Gnome is running and calls apport-gtk
or apport-kde accordingly. If neither is available, or the session does
not run under X11, it calls apport-cli for a command-line client.

apport-collect collects the same information as apport-bug, but adds it
to an already reported problem you have submitted. This is useful if
the report was not originally filed through Apport, and the developers
ask you to attach information from your system.


Please see the apport-cli manpage for possible options.

Apport refuses to create bug reports if the package or any
dependency is not current. If this environment variable is set,
this check is waived. Experts who will thoroughly check the sit‐
uation before filing a bug report can define this in their
~/.bashrc or temporarily on the command line when calling

apport crash files are written in to /var/crash by default, named
uniquely per binary name and user id. They are not deleted after being
sent to the bug tracker (but from cron when they get older than 7
days). You can extract the core file (if any) and other information
using apport-unpack.
