http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, Im using Ubuntu 10.04 and im having problems with my proxy authentication. I can use browser, apt-get and synaptic with no problems (once i could set them up), but there are some programs that i cannot. My gmail notifier and rhythmbox are some examples of programs that i've tested and was unable to access internet. The apt-get problem was solved adding some lines on the /etc/apt/apt.conf: Code: Acquire::http::proxy "http://user:pass@proxy:port/"; Acquire::ftp::proxy "ftp://user:pass@proxy:port/"; Acquire::https::pr (HowTos)
