#4216 closed Bug (wontfix)

gnome3 Network Settings not in the same place

Reported by: lesnoland Owned by: jordan
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 2.22
Severity: Normal Keywords: gnome3 network proxy


Gnome3 has changed the place where the Network Settings are, and is not backward compatible with Gnome2 therefore Transmission will not be able to find if a proxy is set or not. The function below should be updated.

proxy_settings_populate( GConfClient * client, struct gtr_proxy_settings * settings )

I found a sample code on how to grab the Network Proxy settings using GSettings in Gnome3 here:

  • Component changed from Transmission to GTK+ Client
  • Milestone changed from None Set to Sometime
  • Owner set to jordan
  • Status changed from new to assigned

This is probably too big of a change for 2.30, but ought to be used post-2.30

I have added a patch that depends on HAVE_GSETTINGS being defined.

It still needs work, but this is the way it should be handled.

Problem: Tried it with bad proxies, and transmission still connects to torrents, etc (I do not know how this works) all I could find was the "proxy_setup()" function.

Also I do not see the point in grabbing ftp proxy, etc.

To be continued.
