Description Jeremy Katz 2006-04-26 21:46:27 UTC
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 10:00:26 UTC
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 19:29:39 UTC
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 04:22:50 UTC
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...

Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-09-06 16:05:17 UTC
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.

It also works if the automatic configuration option is selected?
