Yeah, the Kernel option works for most HID devices, better than the USB subsystem one

comment /etc/apt/apt.conf gets cleared every time I change proxy settings under settings->network->Network proxy
Works, but i have to make sure i have run disable-proxy in terminal before i change proxy option in the system network settings , which is necessary for chrome to work. if i dont, my proxy settings in the apt.conf.d/70proxy.conf get lost/cleared still

comment /etc/apt/apt.conf gets cleared every time I change proxy settings under settings->network->Network proxy
yeah, thats much better, didnt work though, logged out, logged back in and in terminal, disable-proxy or enable-proxy are not found. I ma thinking setting this up for at environment level would make sure wen i open a new terminal, its available. dont know how to do that though. FYI, it works if i do the commands in a terminal session.
