abrt-applet needs to start automatically when installed
Last modified: 2015-02-01 17:48:43 EST
The modern way to do so is to install an autostart file in /etc/xdg/autostart.
The applet should silently quite if the abrt service is not running
This is already fixed in git.
Closing. If you still see the problem in 0.0.7+ abrt, please reopen
