Those messages often are error messages. And they ask me to send the error message to the maker of the software. But One Cannot copy this message. So I do not do anything with these messages. I know somewhere in my computer seems to be a journal with all messages, but that is a lot of work to search for a notification. Please make these error messages copy-able. It would be an advantage for makers of software.

Try to launch ABRT application. If you use GNOME-shell, so it it gnome-abrt. You also may send bug report to the RedHat Bugzilla if you have rhbz account.

ABRT does not show these error messages.
