let show you how to fix Opensuse package manager behind proxy
I: From GUI
Open Search and find yast control manager > proxy
root password is need to make any change of this configuration
change the config of proxy settings .
Please Enable the proxy .
Put the hostname or IP followed by :port number.
Use the same proxy for all protocols .
Non user proxy to connect to same proxy and to local machine
If the proxy needs an identification put put Domain\user password . else leave it empty
Before to accept and go OK . please check the proxy settings from (Test Proxy Settings)
Check if you are able some packages
Open YaST2 Software manager . find an package in my example is Kate text manager in KDE
Install needs some extra dependencies
II- Configure the proxy From the command prompt is too Easy
Please make your proxy config file /etc/sysconfig/proxy like this :
Now refresh and install ( no restart is needed)
You are done ,
