    Synaptic issues with proxy servers

    As soon as I set a http or ftp proxy server in Synaptic, it becomes unable to show packages. I get the sectional listing, and can update the headers, etc, but package listings are not shown, at all.

    Is this a known problem with synaptic in Ubuntu? Its not a problem with apt-get, as apt-get works perfectly with my proxy server.

    I belive it's a firewall issue. Something's wrong there with synaptic, the settings doesn't seem to effect it - it just goes for the some locked port (and not to proxy port)...
    I solved that problem by removing synaptic package and building it from the source.
    Before that do apt-get build-dep synaptic to get all dependencies you need for build...
