Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm having a problem with system wide configuration, when I apply them I get "proxy server is refusing connection" but when I apply them to firefox it works fine.

Also, how would I allow apt-get, synaptic and ubuntu software center through the proxy once I am able to successfully apply system wide settings.
