synaptic package manager

Postby jesica » Thu Jun 05, 2014 7:17 am

Hey all

I have upgraded to Mint 17, fresh install. I am trying to setup my proxy

in synaptic package manager under network, I tick manual as I always did, then click the Authentication box, my the box does not want me to write in it.

I did try and Google the error and read some forums, but without any help.

What might be the problem.

Mint 17 quiana cinammon - 64 bit

It may well be a bug but how do we either escalate it and get it dealt with or find a workround? Not everyone isf running from a home platform but have to cope with a proxy in a school or college environment.

This is the kind of problem that would put newbies off especially since they might expect the software from the install to be tested.

I also reckon its a bug.
I will report it,
It seems the proxy setup in Ubuntu differs from the one in Mint.
We have a RCHE at work and he did not many to sort it out in the terminal.

I confirm this.
It also happens in Debian (and LMDE).
Does not happen in Mint 13 (Synaptic is old there, version 0.75.9).

There's a fix for this available upstream, I've cherry-picked it and made a pull request for Synaptic in Mint 17. Wait for its approval.

Update: Synaptic 0.81.2-4 is in the repos.
