Ubuntu – Ubuntu 12.04 APT Proxy

12.04aptPROXY

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 on a password-protected proxy network. My web browser is configured and works, but I cannot install packages from apt or similar. Is there a way to configure apt to use my proxy? Is there a way to configure my entire system to use my proxy?

You can set proxy in System Settings --> Network --> Network Proxy.

If it still not OK for apt, you can use several methods, I personally use method adding the following lines to /etc/apt/apt.conf:

Acquire::http::proxy "http://username:password@proxyserver:port/";
Acquire::https::proxy "http://username:password@proxyserver:port/";

Save and reboot
