Description Martin Rehn 2005-11-01 19:46:08 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.4.2)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

I have a local file implementing my FindProxyForURL function, that tells Konqueror to use the library proxy for journal sites. When I find a new journal that needs the proxy I add it to this function.

I have my proxy settings set to automatic, using this file over the file:// protocol.

Presently, it seems that you have to enter Konqueror's proxy configuration dialog, pretend to change something, and hit OK for the auto-configuration file to be re-read. It would be nice if this could happen automatically whenever the file is changed on disk.

I realize there may be some consistency problems, since this approach might not work for remote URL:s.

In some cases it is presently even required to shut down and restart Konqueror 
for the changes to the configuration file to take effect.

still seeing this wishlist item in kde 4.3.1.

also applies to akregator and probably any app that uses kde's networking

Pushed by adawit into branch 'master'.

Implemented support for monitoring local proxy configuration script files for
changes so that those changes could be applied automatically.
