If you are looking to set proxy settings system-wide in Ubuntu, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Network settings by clicking on the network icon in the top panel and selecting "Network Settings" or by searching for "Settings" in the Activities overview and selecting "Network".
  2. In the Network settings, click on the "Proxy" tab on the left sidebar.
  3. Toggle the switch to turn on the manual proxy configuration.
  4. Enter the proxy settings, including the proxy address and port number. You can also set up authentication if required.
  5. Additionally, you can configure proxy settings for specific protocols like HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, etc.
  6. Click on the "Apply Settings" button to save your changes.


After setting up the proxy settings, your system should now use the specified proxy configuration for all network connections.
