Description Jeremy Katz 2006-04-26 17:46:27 EDT
gnome-session should probably set HTTP_PROXY, etc if you set up a network proxy
in control-center so that non-GNOME apps have a chance of working.

Add to FC6Destop tracker
Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2006-07-13 06:00:26 EDT
gnome-terminal already does this - see:


agreed, though, that this should probably be in gnome-session. I've re-opened
the upstream bug:

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-07-25 15:29:39 EDT
what apps depend on http_proxy (that aren't run from terminal) ?

We should just go with whatever upstream does I think.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-06 00:22:50 EDT
I really think we need to do this, even if it's adding a patch ourselves.  Right
now, it's extremely non-obvious how to do any sort of proxy setting for a) any
non-GNOME app b) any app not running as the user (eg, pup/pirut).

And I really don't think that "add proxy config to pup/pirut" is the right
answer here...

*** Bug 204482 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-09-06 12:05:17 EDT
Ohh, this is for pirut! Okay.  It would be better, long term, if pirut dropped
privileges and used gconf itself, I think, but I realize that has its own

Should be fixed in the next compose.  Reopen, if not.  I haven't really tested
it, so there might be issues.
Comment 7 Marius Andreiana 2006-09-12 12:47:28 EDT
It also works if the automatic configuration option is selected?
