KUbuntu Proxy Configuration – Part II

Well after all setting the http_proxy and ftp_proxy environment variables on the /etc/environement file is not really enough because of one KDE small detail… If on the KDE system settings you choose Proxy configuration and then you choose the option “Use the Preset proxy environement variables” you have a NO PROXY field where IP addresses or hostnames are put to circunvent the proxy.

Well it doesn’t work… If you fill it with something when opening again the properties, they are empty.

So the solution is really still to use the environement variables and on KDE use the “Manually specify the proxy settings” where the machines that do not need Proxy can be added.
