Could one of the maintainers of this package let me know how to get into the src on this one. I would like to address this problem.

Changed in gnome-control-center (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Low

I just changed the privileges in
/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.gnome.gconf.defaults.policy
-> com.ubuntu.systemservice.setproxy

as well as
/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.gnome.gconf.defaults.policy
-> org.gnome.gconf.defaults.set-system

to not have to enter the password several times a day to change the proxy (home -> university -> work).

Best way to solve this would be to implement

This problem still exists in 10.10. Very annoying.

The dialog has been deprecated and rewritten in GNOME3 and Oneiric, closing the bug
