apt-get install flashplugin-installer and ttf-mscorefonts-installer via proxy








My desktop has not direct internet access but goes through a proxy. It fails to install the packages like flashplugin-installer or ttf-mscorefonts-installer. There are 2 solutions:
  • edit /etc/wgetrc
    sudo vi /etc/wgetrc
    http_proxy = http://your-proxy.your.org:3128
    substitude the proxy address and the port 3128 with your proxy address and port number. Save the file then run
    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer ttf-mscorefonts-installer
  • or for one-off installation:
    sudo http_proxy=http://your-proxy.your.org:3128 apt-get install flashplugin-installer ttf-mscorefonts-installer
