I want to change proxy in whole system. I am using Kubuntu 14.04 64bit.

I know that should change proxy variables like http_proxy="http://proxy.xxx.xx:80XX/" etc.

But it will not change proxy in KDE settings, so I have to do it manually in Settings GUI, but I want to write one command and change proxy for whole system.

Does exist something similar as gsettings set org.gnome.system.proxy for KDE? Thanks.


Edit your:

gedit /etc/profile

Enter the details in this format.

export http_proxy=http://username:password@proxyhost:port/ 
export ftp_proxy=http://username:password@proxyhost:port/
  • how you do it on-the-fly ? like changing in control center ? – zb' Aug 7 '16 at 15:54
