Using a proxy server with liferea (0.4.7 cvs) and KDE desktop

liferea and uses the global GNOME configuration to find the proxy
server to use. Since I prefer to use KDE, setting those values is

My proxy server is running on localhost:8080, so I needed to edit the
file ~/.gconf/system/http_proxy/%gconf.xml to make it look like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<entry name="use_http_proxy"
mtime="1072573677" muser="marc" type="bool" value="true"/>
<entry name="port" mtime="1072573677"
muser="marc" type="int" value="8080"/>
<entry name="host" mtime="1063901920"
muser="marc" type="string"><stringvalue>localhost</stringva

Hope that helps someone...
