Hi to everybody. I have just installed LinuxMint XFCE CE 6; before I was using the main edition of Felicia. Using the main edition I was able to use wpad.dat automatic proxy configuration file from my university; using XFCE edition it does not work. Apparently it seems that the browser (I have tried with Firefox, SeaMonkey and Opera) finds an error in the file. I have checked with Windows using Explorer and it works ( :( ). Does anyone had a similar problem ? Thanks in advance. Regards Edie

The wpad file is on the proxy and the applications are supposed to use it somehow if I understand right
It would be helpful if we could see an error message - else it's close to impossible to say anything about it
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Return to “XFCE”
