As use the same laptop in my house that use in my office, I usually have to keep chaning my proxy connection after I come back to home. In my house, I dont use a proxy but in my office I have to use one for Internet access. In firefox there is a beautiful add-on FoxyProxy which can be used for the same purpose
To configure proxy settings for apt-get or aptitude or synaptic manager, all you have to do is edit the file, /etc/apt/apt.conf .
Here you have to mention the following 3 lines::
vignesh@vignesh-laptop:~$ cat /etc/apt/apt.conf
Once you have made the above changes in /etc/apt/apt.conf , you will be able to use apt-get, aptitude or your synaptic manager through the proxy.
