Request: LinuxMCE Direct download
« on: July 26, 2007, 10:12:21 am »
Hi Guys...and girls

We in South Africa dont get to download torrents very easily due to shaping on our bandwidth. I did manage to download the linuxmce-1.1-packages.iso (Direct down) from http://proyectos.pixelamigo.com/software/Ubuntu/linuxMCE/ but the site seems to be down at the moment and I cannot download the cache CD. I am sitting behind a proxy at work and the "I dont have the CD - download from internet" option times out when trying to download the "Kubuntu extra packages CD" AKA linuxmce-1.1-cache.iso from the linuxmce installer itself.

So, can someone please post a direct download link...it would be much appreciated!!!

thanx

You need to configure your system to work behind a proxy. Configure APT by creating a file in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d called proxy with the following entry.

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://USER:PASSWD@primary-proxy.domain.com:PORT/"; [^]

and add

http_proxy="http://USER:PASSWD@primary-proxy.domain.com:PORT" [^]

to /etc/environment

if your proxy does not require an user and passwd the line will be "http://primary-proxy.domain.com:PORT/"

hope this works.

Im an absolute noob when it comes to linux (first time Im using it)
my proxy address is 10.27.21.4 on port 8080 and I also use authentication [domainname\username | Password]
How would I go about setting the config for the above...bear in mind, I dont even know what APT is.

open a terminal and enter sudo su command and then press enter. you will be asked to enter a password. you must write the password of the uset that you created. then, write in that terminal gedit /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/proxy and press enter. in that empty file write  Acquire::http::Proxy "http://USER:PASSWD@primary-proxy.domain.com:PORT/"; (replace user, passwd and ip address and port of the proxy). in that terminal, again, write gedit /etc/environment, press enter and write http_proxy="http://USER:PASSWD@primary-proxy.domain.com:PORT" (replace user, passwd, ip and port of the proxy). then save the file.

Hi
I tried that out...Entered my password and when I type in "gedit /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/proxy" - I get the following:
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

cannot open display:

Am I missing something?

instead of gedit you can put nano which is a text editor for consoles. copy the text like in a grafical text editor. after you wrote the text in the file, press ctrl+x to save the changes in the file.
