Arch Linux proxy server
I would like to set HTTP proxy for Google Chrome on ArchLinux.
When I open the proxy settings section in Chrome GUI I get:
When running Google Chrome under a supported desktop environment, the system proxy settings will be used. However, either your system is not supported or there was a problem launching your system configuration.
But you can still configure via the command line. Please see man google-chrome for more information on flags and environment variables.
Running it with google-chrome-stable -proxy-server=127.0.0.1:8080 has no effect.
Going to chrome://net-internals/#proxy reveals:
Effective proxy settings
Use DIRECT connections. Source: GSETTINGS Original proxy settings
Auto-detect Source: GSETTINGS
So I use gsettings to set those values.
gsettings get org.gnome.system.proxy.http enabled true gsettings get org.gnome.system.proxy.http host localhost gsettings get org.gnome.system.proxy.http port 8080
