I am a Linux Ubuntu user and I have some problem setting the proxy on my entire system.
I go into the network settings of my Gnome and then I go to the Network Proxy settings mask and then I put my proxy for the HTTP Proxy* as Manual, then I click on the Applies to the entire system button, it ask me my password and it is finish
The problem is that if I open a shell, the network don't work and I can't ping anyting, infact I obtain only:
andrea@andrea-Studio-1555:~$ ping google.com PING google.com (126.96.36.199) 56(84) bytes of data.
and the cursor still blink and don't go on...
Why? What can I do to go out with my proxy in the shell?
