Before 11.10, one could save many proxy configurations as profiles, so one could have a config for home and another for work in a laptop. Now that I've updated to 11.10, I no longer have that option.

So, how can I configure a proxy profile for my home and one for my job?

By the way, the proxy configuration has been merged into the network configuration.

@MarcoCeppi : Just to point that i couldn't know it's a bug. From my point of view, it could be a feature moved to another place just as the proxy configuration was moved to network configuration, or it could be a bug. The only way to know if it is a new way to config the proxy profiles or if it is a bug is asking first. – jgomo3 Dec 1 '11 at 13:22

Bug report:

This page claims Gnome3 moved the proxy location, and offers a workaround.

I just passed this upstream to Gnome so hopefully we might get some more information in the near future.
