I recently installed Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat, which comes with Gnome
2.32 by default. Gnome 2.32 includes GLib 2.26 which implements proxy
support for GSocket (according to
http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/2.32/#glib) and as Danielle
mentioned in the previous email I was expecting Empathy to be able to
connect to GTalk through a proxy: yet it failed. Would it be a wrong
configuration on my system? I had set Gnome proxy for HTTP, HTTPS, Socks
and FTP... is there a solution?
