No luck here, either. Trying to install Mint 12 LXDE in a VirtualBox, but it won't connect to the net via a Proxy. Firefox can be made to, but I can't find a system setting.
After many fruitless websearches, and eventually finding that to search for a file you need Accessories..Catfish
I tried some sudo leafpad
trickery with /etc/environment
to get these working
- Code: Select all
.. but even logging out and in again (user: mint, no password) even if it did 'stick' in a new terminal, it didn't make any difference.sudo apt-get update
doesn't get anywhere, nor does mintupdate from a terminal or the menu.
The install (from the desktop icon) just seizes up and hangs on Installing Language Packs, because it can't connect.
I've wasted hours Googling on this, The Combined Intelligence of the Internet
doesn't seem to be able to help!
