Proxy problem

Asked by Fredrik Stahre on 2011-08-17

Hi,

when I start indicator-weather I get this error in the indicator-weather.log:
[MainThread] 2011-08-11 10:41:03,005 - DEBUG - ProxyMonitor: loading gconf settings
[MainThread] 2011-08-11 10:41:03,005 - ERROR - ProxyMonitor: empty proxy host!

If I look in gconf-editor I can see that my proxy settings is there but they don't seem to be applied. Does anyone know what might be the problem?

As you may see, 'host' is empty, so you should verify and correct your proxy settings.

Note, that you are using a very outdated version from Ubuntu repos - could you please try updating to a PPA version from ppa:weather-indicator-team/ppa?
