I recently retried cockpit and then I remembered that when tested last
time I could not find out
how *cockpit-packagekit* could use a proxy server for retrieving updates.
I am behind a firewall and have configured a proxy in
|/etc/dnf/dnf.conf| which works perfectly with dnf.
But within cockpit this setting is not recognized. I also experimented
with overrides for the
docker.socket service and setting the |http_proxy| and |https_proxy|
variables there but
not chance to get it working.
Am I missing something or is it so, that this has not been adressed, yet?
Or will it ever?
Found old bug reports about that e.g.
Any idea how to set a proxy for cockpit-packagekit or is packagekit
still not supporting it?
Thanks in advance
I am using Ubuntu core 16.04 LTS and have successfully installed cockit and can connect to wifi using a terminal session and nmcli commands.
Id like to be able to connect to wifi access points directly within cockpit instead of having to launch a terminal and use nmcli commands. The documentation states
"If available on the system, Cockpit uses NetworkManager and the DBus APIs it provides to interact with the system's network configuration."
It looks like my system meets the criteria of NetworkManager and the DBus APIs being available. The wifi interface appears and all the option look the same as a wired interface. I dont get any wifi connection options. Is there something missing on my system?
