Description of problem:
When I changed the GNOME Proxy-settings it was simply ignored.
The gnome-network-preferences dialog doesn't change the value of the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open GNOME Netork Proxy (gnome-network-preferences)
2. Choose "Manual Proxy Configuration"
3. Enter your Proxyserver IP and port and close the dialog.
4. Look at the gconf-key /system/http_proxy/use_http_proxy or test it: Open
nautilus and enter http://www.gnome.org, nothing happens.
Actual Results: Nothing happens.
Expected Results: Nautilus would show me the html-code of www.gnome.org/index.htm
To activate the proxy just type "gconftool-2 --set
/system/http_proxy/use_http_proxy --type=bool [true|false]" on the console.
Works fine for me on rawhide. If I keep gconf-editor open I can see
the box to be checked/unchecked when I switch None/Manual in
Could you try with a more recent version please ?
True, is working now.
