Hi, I'm changing from XP into linux, and I'm trying it with LinuxMint. I got here just for the fresh look of the KDE flavor.
I set up LinuxMint Gloria KDE RC1 on my laptop, which I use at work with a wired ethernet connection, and I need to setup a PROXY for it to work. At home I use my wireless DSL without a PROXY. How can I configure the system so it automagically uses the proxy settings at work and the direct connection at home?
In XP what I did, was to setup 2 users, one for work and one for home, the settings of the work user included the proxy and proxy user & password, the other were direct. I think the same approach in linux won't work, because the security of files and such would be too much to handle for a newbie like me (I think).
The connection at work is much much faster than at home, so I want to be able to update/upgrade my system at work. Thanx.
