Re: [PLUG] Bizarre proxy behavior after upgrading a partition from 11.10 to 12.04 LTS

It turned out to be two issues. The first is a bug in KDE Software Settings where when I set the proxy server, it puts a space before the port rather than a colon! When I manually edited kioslaverc to put a colon, bingo, it started working.

The problem with aptitude turned out to be that in my flailing, I had with gnome-control-center set a system wide proxy. When I cleared it, aptitude started using the service account and worked.

I experienced such bizarre behavior with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my laptop that I am at a bit of a loss as to where to start troubleshooting.

I am also having intermittent troubles in Xubuntu 12.04 with my network connections.

I do have Intel network both wired & wireless, my issue happens both wired & wireless.

Very strange.
