Setting up internet proxy

If you need to access the internet via a proxy as is the case in several universities we must follow the following steps 

  1. In the directory /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/  create the file10proxy

         cd /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/

         sudo nano 10proxy

  2. In this file add the line 

         Acquire::http::Proxy "http://username:password@proxy_address:port";

  At DeKUT we type

          Acquire::http::Proxy "";  

  3. Save the file and exit- Type Ctrl-X and type Y when asked whether to save changes

  4. In the terminal type sudo apt-get update 

You should now have access to the internet
