Ubuntu GUI

Ubuntu GUI

Ubuntu is an open-source Linux distribution developed by Canonical. It’s a secure and robust operating system with over 10 years of security patching for various CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures), making it an ideal Linux distribution for production and enterprise environments.The easiest way to set up Ubuntu GUI is using Settings > Networks > Network Proxy. In this method, we’ll be using Ubuntu Settings to set up a system-wide network proxy. Follow the steps below:
  • From Ubuntu launcher find Settings and go to the Network tab
  • Once you click on Network, it will open up a new dialog. From the three options choose Network Proxy.
  • Configure Proxy Settings. To configure a proxy server click Manual. Next, several text boxes will pop up from which you’ll be able to 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 IP address and 40000 under Port, you’ll acquire a German exit node. You can find the complete list of country-specific entry nodes here.
Once you close the Network Proxy window, the changes will automatically be saved and the system-wide proxy will be activated.
