I’m moving my work computer to Kubuntu, and hit a snag right away… My corporate network has, of course, a proxy server to access the internet. Well setting up on the Network preferences of KDE the network proxy doesn’t work for alot, and I mean alot, of applications, like Adept Manager, Kopet at least. (Well it seems also that kopet doesn’t work through proxys, so I’m using pidgin, and that one has it’s own proxy configuration)
I had to go to a shell session, set up the http_proxy and ftp_proxy variables and start up those applications through command line. C’mon guys! Can we get at least this so simple issue to work????
