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: dc.pr.oxylabs.io

Port: 10000

It’s also possible to use country-specific entries. For instance, if you enter dc.de-pr.oxylabs.io under HTTP Proxy and 40000 under Port, you’ll acquire a German exit node. You can find the complete list of country-specific 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.
