LinuxMCE installer Proxy configuration
« on: March 29, 2007, 12:57:38 pm »
Hi,

I'm having some troubles with the LinuxMCE installer. I'm behind a proxy and its configuration doesn't seem to be detected by the software.

I've configured the proxy in Ubuntu under System > Preferences > Network Proxy. I've tried to use the automatic proxy configuration as well as the manual configuration. I've also added the line :
http_proxy="myproxy:myport"
in the /etc/environment file.

The proxy is working in the terminal windows, in firefox and in other gnome apps.

When I launch the "Install Linux MCE" shortcut, it first asks if I want to install the media playback and remote control. I choose Yes, and click Forward. There it freezes for several time and I eventually get a window that says that it couldn't connect to the internet and asks if I want to configure my network manually.

Even after configuring manually the network, it doesn't seem to work, I always get a network connection failed kind of message.

Someone has an idea or has had the same trouble?

Thanks

I'm dealing with the same issue.  Did you ever solve it?

Nope, it is more complex than that.  We already have apt working through a proxy as well as Konqueror and wget.

The first problem is that mce-installer-getnetdata.sh test network connectivity to www.google.com using nc, (which obviously doesn't know how to use a proxy).

I'll keep debugging and let you know how I get on

Yep, that's all it took.  Have raised Mantis bug for above
