I come from Ubuntu and when things crashed I could collect the relevant information and submit a bug report. Is there an easy or preferred way to do this in Arch Linux after an application crashes?

Arch is a DIY distro: there is no automated tool for bug reporting. There is, however, comprehensive guidance on the Arch Wiki for reporting bugs.

The philosophy of Arch, the Arch Way, stresses self-sufficiency and a willingness to contribute solutions, which means actively participating in bug reporting and squashing. This doesn't fit well with an automated complaint reporting system.
