Delete all abrt problems

I just had some crash of polkit and some polkit helper and it is spamming me with abrt messages. Usually when a crash happens I just open the Problem Reporting gui, check the crash and delete it if it’s unimportant or resolved. However, polkit just put up lots of messages and they are not grouped together. So, now I would have to select 100+ messages one by one and klick delete. That’s not fun. There must be a better way to delete ALL abrt messages at once, maybe from bash.


Try this way:

sudo abrt-cli remove -f "*"

Works like a charm!
For the “personal” messages (non-system) it works even without sudo.
