Synaptic does not querry the gnome proxy settings. This is because
synaptic is in no way gnome dependend. If there is a way to querry the
proxy settings without the need to link against a gnome lib, I will
add this feature.

In the meantime, you can use the enviroment variable "http_proxy,
ftp_proxy" to set the proxy in synaptic. E.g:
$ export http_proxy= 

should work.

But I clearly see the need to have such a option available in a more
user-friendly way.
thanks for your feedback,
