Proxy definition for APT

Recently when I started to upgrade Kubuntu from 7.04 to 7.10 using Adopt manager I faced with problem. It doesn’t get proxy setting from the system. To solve that a following line should be added into file /etc/apt/apt.conf (you have to create it if it doesn’t exist):
Acquire::http::Proxy "http://user:password@proxy_URL:proxy_Port";
User name and password can be omitted if you don’t use them.
