Re: proxy setup?


Installed Rabbit4.8 (a simple java proxy, which is really easy to use

also easy to set up, I just did not have the time to try it. LXProxy
is not acceptable for me, since logging out and back again is not
something I would do for a proxy setting change.

add proxy configuration to my browser. When I click on Change proxy
settings, I'm getting:

system proxy settings will be used. However, either your system is not

But you can still configure via the command line. Please see man
chromium-browser for more information on flags and environment

Is this also related to the fact that LXDE is a "simple window
manager" ? (bug related to the issue that Chromium can not determine
if it's default browser or not):

Installed Midori and FF, both could be configured to use the above
mentioned proxy (in general, proxies could be added to these
