Does system/preff/network proxy affects anything

Postby markotitel » 2010-04-09 00:29

Hello,

I want to set proxy for debian lenny, I went to sys/pref/net proxy, but still APTITUDE does not use this setting.

Is it even possibile to set up proxy for global usage?

The menu entry for proxy is a Gnome setting, not system wide, and it only affects Gnome apps.

If you want to use aptitude via a proxy then read man apt.conf and it will show you what to do, or read http://www.unixmen.com/linux-tutorials/documentations-a-howto/408-apt-get-behind-a-proxy-
