Recently I've switched from Fedora 17 to OpenSUSE 12.2. I used to add my proxy from Network Settings>Network Proxy>Manual Method>Socks Hosts. But it doesn't work on openSUSE.
I get the following error in Chrome:
Error 120 (net::ERR_SOCKS_CONNECTION_FAILED): Unknown error.
Further more proxy setting at Gnome Config Editor is not applied at all.
I know that I can use proxy at software level (like firefox) but then I have to set the proxy for all of my application and some application doesn't support that.
