Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

When I go through a proxy, I change the settings in my preferences. I encode the URL of the proxy and the login and password.

Then, when I want to update my computer (via a terminal and aptitude), I notice that the login and password are not taken into account. I must manually edit the file / etc / apt / apt.conf. The URL is present, but not the login and password. I must also change the value of http_proxy system via an export command.
