Driver Manager with Proxy

Post by ngrcld » Mon Jul 31, 2017 12:19 pm

Hi!

I'm trying to install some system drivers but my network have proxy.

I already set the proxy and can use the update manager, apt tools, internet surfing etc

The problem is: Driver Manager

Same problem as stated here: viewtopic.php?t=249552

The problem is also present when the proxy requires no authentication.

"driver manager" "proxy"
and got this ("driver-manager proxy settings")

and a few other solutions.

Still waiting the solution for that... :shock: :?

Running Driver Manager through terminal...

Code: Select all

user@LINUXMINT ~ $ sudo driver-manager 
Post-install mode detected
Checking connectivity or live media...
Internet connection detected 
But still getting the message: "Network isn't available" at GUI...

apt is running great using proxy auth, internet surfing either...

No one cares about this problem?! :x
