on Windows i had Wireguard or OpenVPN as a main system proxy and then on top of that i had Shadowsocks which i have used just for my web browsing (127.0.0.1:1080).
Is there anyone who have experience with this (two levels of proxies, multiple proxies one for system other for app like web browser). I am a beginner in Manjaro, XFCE.
Maybe you are not using Shadowsocks, but i have found it is doable on Manjaro:
1 - https://github.com/shadowsocksrr/electron-ssr-electron-ssr-x.x.x.AppImage OR electron-ssr-x.x.x.pacman
2 - Shadowsocks - ArchWiki
3 - How can i do wide system proxy xfce
Regarding Wireguard, i am in early stage of using it. I activated it in commands like:
sudo pacman -S wireguard-tools
cp -p wg-client-name.conf wg0.conf
nmcli connection import type wireguard file wg0.conf
Then internet stopped working (i was using OpenVPN). I had to disable WG service ( systemctl disable email@example.com ; systemctl stop firstname.lastname@example.org )
I will have to discover what is wrong.
I have not yet tried second level proxy like Shadowsocks. Do you have any ideas how to go about that second level proxy? Thank you
