  • If you don't have an account on the bugzilla, create one.
  • Edit /etc/abrt/abrt.conf and list the CCpp and Python lines (activate it). For example:
CCpp = Bugzilla
Python = Bugzilla
  • Edit /etc/abrt/plugins/Bugzilla.conf and make sure the configuration is valid. Insert your bugzilla username and password. Or you can wait and you will be invoke to set password and login before sending report
Enabled = yes
# Bugzilla URL
BugzillaURL =
# yes means that ssl certificates will not be checked
NoSSLVerify = no
# your login has to exist, if you don have any, please create one
Login =
# your password
Password =
  • Optionally, you may set up the username and password using abrt-gui. Launch abrt-gui and select Edit -> Preferences -> Enable Bugzilla -> Configure plugin. Once complete, confirm that /etc/abrt/plugins/Bugzilla.conf lists the information supplied.
  • Restart ABRT:
    $ service abrt restart

[Test 'report']

  • Ensure that the abrt and abrt-applet processes are both running
  • Kill a running process: kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
  • Click on the Report button in popup bubble applet to start abrt-gui
