I am trying to connect to yahoo chat on kubuntu through squid proxy. The proxy system is username/password based. I have tried different solutions like pidgin (has a proxy bug http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/496), kopete (i could not find proxy settings here at all) and gyachi (this looked promising, has a proxy option but does not allow to add username/password).
I have also tried using yahoo messenger using wine but that didnt work out since it is trying to get the proxy from IE.
I have run out of ideas now :). Has someone here tried the same thing? Any advice is welcome.
