Hi everyone, I am new(kind of) to linux, and someone told me about trying out Ubuntu mate . Previously, I have used the usual Ubuntu(unity version). I am currently using Ubuntu Gnome.
Now to come to my problem, after I install(or try out from usb) MATE, I have to enter a proxy address to be able to access internet(I am a univ scholar and my clg provides me a proxy and port no. that i have to enter). But unlike in UBUNTU(unity) or Gnome Ubuntu, I do not find any option to select "ALLOW SYSTEM WIDE" proxy in MATE. There is an option to just add a proxy by which I can access web contents but i can not access "SOFTWARE BOUTIQUE" and it says "RETRY CONNECTION" but I am connected as I can access web. Moreover, "sudo apt-get update" also shows no rply from server.
If anyone can help me avert these problems, it would be very helpful.
P.S. I was using 16.04 version as well as 16.10 .
P.P.S. Apart from MATE ElementaryOS also have this issue
