View Full Version : [ubuntu] apt-add-repository not working with proxy.. HELP!

October 11th, 2010, 04:12 PM
hi guys,

i can't solve this problem myself.

the issue is quite simple: apt-get always works fine, but the apt-add-repository is "unable to connect" with any site on the globe.

i have the same issue when i try to install stuff that required further downloads [like the flash plugin].

the only solution is to use the tethering of my phone, skipping the proxy.

i've no other problems with the proxy and i did the configuration both the "system -> preferences -> proxy" and the "packge manager" settings.

please help me.
