And what did I actually do. I thought you meant terminal emulator like
Gnome Terminal 2.14.1. After a second thought I realised you meant a
new TTY session like e.g. by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F1. I did that and now,
the env | grep proxy gave no output. I could also do the apt-get update
in that session.
I also still wander what is wrong in my graphical UI environment. I
would prefer using the synaptic graphical front end. Any ideas what I
could try next ?
