Ubuntu is an open-source software operating system on Linux for enterprise servers, desktops, the cloud, and IoT.

To set up a system-wide network proxy, follow the steps below:

Step 1. Download and install Ubuntu Desktop.

Step 2. Find Settings from the Ubuntu launcher and go to the Network tab.

Step 3. Once you click on Network, it will open up a new dialog. From the three options, choose Network Proxy.

Step 4. Select Manual to configure proxy settings. Next, several text boxes will pop up from which you can set HTTP, HTTPS, FTP & SOCKS proxy. Fill in the following information:

HTTP Proxy: pr.oxylabs.io

Port: 7777

You can also use random or sticky country-specific entries. For example, if you enter us-pr.oxylabs.io under HTTP Proxy and 10000 under Port, you’ll acquire a US exit node. If you enter 10001 under Port, you’ll receive the US exit node with a sticky session. You can find a complete list of country-specific random proxy entry nodes here and a list of sticky proxy entry nodes - here.

Step 5. Close the Network Proxy window. The changes will automatically be saved, and the system-wide proxy will be activated.

That’s all! You’ve successfully integrated your Oxylabs proxies.
