http://unix.stackexchange.com – I've been trying to use a SOCKS Proxy which I have been using with success from an Ubuntu 11.4 box with GNOME on my Debian box with KDE.The socks server is bound to the local port 1080 through the following ssh command: ssh -p222 -D 1080 <my_username>@socks_server_domain_name Following the advice I found here: http://emilsedgh.info/blog/index.php?/archives/14-SOCKS-proxy-on-KDE.html I edited my ~/.kde/share/config/kioslaverc file and now it looks like this: jason@debian-laptop:~$ cat ~/.kde/share/config/kioslaverc PersistentProxyConnection=true [$Version] socksProxy=socks://localhos (HowTos)
