export prxy setting permanently


I run Kubuntu 8.04 on from a tower. Each time after a reboot I have to do:
Code:
export http_proxy="http://myproxy.myplace:80"
for apt-get to connect to the outside world. I think this can be permanently set somewhere --- is it in ~/.bashrc or /etc/rc.local ?

Cheers,
Isix

keep it in ~/.bash_profile

if this file not exists, search for files with similar name.

thread solved


I created ~/.bash_profile and entered the line there. In fact, this solution fixed my Adept Manager who use to crash.

Thank you chakka.lokesh

chakka.lokesh, please don't reply to threads marked as double posts.

someone else had already given this advice 30 minutes before you did.

Oh yes, wrong hour, either way, you should have replied to that thread, not this one.

I'm not a moderator of this forum, so I can't.
