global environment variables?
I'll get to the point:
My system is behind a proxy at my ISP... everything I run that can use
a proxy recognises http_proxy and ftp_proxy environment variables.
(apt-get, wget, lynx, etc)
So it seems logical to only need to set this in one place, right?
Where would that place be?
I tried /etc/environment - and that works for my login shells (bash
as root, zsh as user) ... but isn't seen from scripts run from cron.
Is there any recommended way to make a an environment truly global?
Is there something I've missed?
