When I change the proxy settings and apply them system-wide, I always have to enter my super-user password, as anyone could expect.

However, I have to do that twice : once for "proxy settings" and another time for "Gconf". How do I set this up so that I have to enter my password only once?


The reason why is difficult to answer (could be just decision during the design), and it will probably be fixed - per this Brainstorm Idea.

While its not fixed, you can try to prevent to enter password twice if you follow up the instuction from this bug #507095.
