Wifi System Proxy Newbie

Hi everyone.
i recently shifted to Garuda. I'm in college and campus wifi has proxy (say 10.32.0.1 and port 8080). When I use wifi with password, everything works smoothly but using wifi with proxy is kind of a nightmare. e.g. I'm unable to update system, download/install any package with pacman or yay. I set the manual proxy in Network setting but still a lot of things are not working.
Please help me with this regard. How can I get everything run smoothly over wifi proxy.

As far as I can say, having no direct experience on this, I can only give you a few interesting Arch wiki articles about it:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Proxy_server#Environment_variables
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Pacman#Pacman_does_not_honor_proxy_settings
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/NetworkManager#Proxy_settings
You'll have to read a little bit and do some testing next time you can.
I'd go more towards setting the suggested environment variables and have sudo pass them to pacman, rather than trying the two suggested tools.
Of course, unless you'll get a more precise solution :slight_smile:

Thank you very much. I read it and did some research and able to run pacman. I'm new in Linux and I struggle a bit. Will ask you again, if I'm stuck.
