Hello,

I am a PhD aspirant & doing my research work under University. The issue I encountered is that the university provides only the browser proxy settings to connect to the internet since it automatically logs in to the ieeexplore, google scholar & many such websites with the university account credentials.

It would be great if a UNIFIED systemwide proxy configuration tool is provided (like we see in KDE DE & Ubuntu based distros), otherwise we have to manually configure the configuration file to do so. The drawback is that, sometimes we need to set the parameters for each individual softwares which decrease the productivity time & creates a lot of issues. Hence I request the Uberstudent developers to add the UNIFIED PROXY settings into the next release.

Please share your views. Thanking you in anticipation.

Thank you for your posts. I'll package ubproxy and add it to the UberStudent repositories for both 4.* and the forthcoming 5.0. It will be installed by default in UberStudent 5.0., all ready to go.

That is a great news. When can we expect Uberstudent 5 to get released?
