Thank you for the bug report. If you have time, please start gnome-abrt in verbose mode from command line and provide the output.

$ gnome-abrt -vvv

It would be nice if you can check that abrt-dbus works correctly. In order to do so, please run the following command and provide the output:

$ dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.problems /org/freedesktop/problems org.freedesktop.problems.GetProblems

Thank you! Unfortunately, without a stack trace from the crash it is impossible to determine what caused the crash. Please see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/StackTraces for more information about getting a useful stack trace with debugging symbols.

But I would expect that ABRT has detected the crash, so you should be able to report this bug via abrt-cli:

1. find the corresponding abrt problem and its number:
  $ abrt-cli list
  or you can single out only the problems linked to gnome-abrt

  $ abrt-cli list | grep -B4 gnome-abrt

  problem number is on single line and is prefixed with @

2. report the problem

  $ abrt-cli report @$(problem mumber found int the previous step>)

Comment 6 KitchM 2013-08-08 16:00:37 UTC
When trying abrt-cli list, I received back:
bash: abrt-cli: command not found...

What should I do now?

Comment 7 Jakub Filak 2013-08-08 16:07:12 UTC
Ah, abrt-cli is not installed by default, so you have to install it:

$ sudo yum install abrt-tui

Oops.  Now I get:

yum clean all && yum install abrt-cli

Comment 10 Jakub Filak 2013-08-09 07:27:39 UTC
Hmm, I pretty sure I know what is this bug about. You have abrt from nightly builds and gnome-abrt suffers from bug #959811.
