Thanks for explaning that it is possible to create a bug report on one system, then manually copy it to another computer where the bug report can then be submitted using ubuntu-bug.
This is not exactly as convenient as being able to run apport on one system to gather debugging info, submit this to Launchpad (but not create the bug, yet), then access the URL printed from another computer which then allows for SSO authentication and bug submission from this other computer. So a bit of a different use case, too. But, yes, it is mostly nice-to-have - (not having reviewed the code) it just seems like it should be easy to implement since this is what ubuntu-bug already does when it is unable to create its GUI. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to apport in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1831351 Title: Please provide option to continue bug report from different computer Status in apport package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Bug description: There are some situations where it is desirable to gather debugging information on a system affected by a bug, but to login (to Launchpad/Ubuntu SSO) and complete editing this bug report from a different system. This is already implemented for situations where the affected system runs headless, i.e. servers without a graphical display. However, this should also be a user choice exposed as a command line option to ubuntu-bug (which, at least according to --help it currently is not). A common use case where this would be nice to have is testing software in a VM, but not wanting to expose Ubuntu SSO credentials to this VM (e.g. for security concerns). Another use case is a need to report a serious bug in the default web browser where this web browser is unable to access any websites. There is a workaround: DISPLAY= ubuntu-bug somepackage Unfortunately this means the debugging data collection phase will provide a text-only UI instead of the nicer / more user-friendly GTK one.
