Well, lets say you want to start "yourapp" with http_proxy variable set
to http://somehost:8184. Then you'd just do

p = QProcess()
env = QProcess.systemEnvironment()
env.append( "http_proxy=http://somehost:8184" )
p.start( "yourapp" )

This would start "yourapp" as if you'd have done the following in a

export http_proxy=http://somehost:8184

As I said before you can only change the environment of processes you
start from your code, you can't influence environment settings of
already running processes.

If you still have problems, please be more precise whats not working and
show some code.


You will probably marry after a very brief courtship.
