Chrome's KDE proxy integration broken on KDE / Fedora

Chrome reads the proxy settings from Gnome correctly. However, when I run Chrome under KDE, the proxy integration is broken:

  1. In the settings of Chrome, clicking the "Change proxy settings" opens the KDE proxy setting dialog correctly (the command kcmshell4 proxy actually is executed).

  2. However, after the proxy settings are made, Chrome does not read it out. (Test the proxy settings on http://www.pkill.info/whoami/ ).

The versions of softwares:

Chrome: 25.0.1364.160
KDE: 4.9.5
Linux: Fedora 17, with kernel 3.7.9-104.fc17.x86_64

This seems a bug ever and is fixed ( https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=106052#c6 ). Not sure whether it is caused by this.

It seems that Chrome tries to read KDE's configuration files from ~/.kde4/.... However, in Fedora, the KDE configuration files are under ~/.kde.

One trick makes it work:

$ cd ~
$ ln -s .kde .kde4
