Removing apt proxy in ubuntu
Hey guys, I use my laptop(Ubuntu Jaunty) both at university(behind a proxy) and elsewhere(no proxy). I am able to remove the proxy of everything EXCEPT apt.
I just use system->preferences->network proxy and click apply system wide.But apt-get just does not honor this. It keeps trying to connect to that proxy.
1)I even entered gconf-editor and removed several instances of the specific proxy setting. Still, it tries to connect to the same proxy.
2) My etc/apt/apt.conf is blank.
Where is it reading the values from? so very wierd. I have read many many threads on this problem but none come up with a satisfactory solution. Those who do, just say "yay! I solved it!" instead of actually saying what they did.
Please help! and thanks for any suggestions!
