Proxydriver / auto proxy settings

This is how you configure systemwide proxy settings for XFCE:
http://superuser.com/questions/357688/h … linux-xfce

However, how do I get this to update according to whichever network I am connected to. I don't want to have to grant root and edit /etc/environment everytime I plug I switch home vs work networks.

I think there is a tool for this in Gnome called proxydriver. I can't see this in my package manager (equo search proxydriver or emerge --search proxydriver) though and I'm not sure if this would work with XFCE.

Re: Proxydriver / auto proxy settings

I have similar requirement:
My DHCP server broadcasts WPAD/PAC url, so proxy can be configured automatically per different network. However, xfce does not have this feature therefore does not read from DHCP.
Do we have a future plan?

KDE and GNOME both support it.

Re: Proxydriver / auto proxy settings

There is some information in this bug report on thoughts regarding global proxy configuration. It sure would be a nice feature to implement.
