It would be nice and very helpful to have a global button like in ubuntu for a system-wide config change if you have to use a proxy gateway for net access.

I just set that up in the control panel, and then launched the package manager and noticed that the settings didn't replicate like in ubuntu.

system wide proxy is not available anymore in Mint 14 Mate. As a result, apt-get, google chrome and other applications are not able to access the internet.

There is a tick box "Available to all Users" at the bottom of the window when editing Network Connections.

Which version of Mint are you referring to? The proxy app in Mint 9 is exactly the same as that in Ubuntu 10.4, there is an "Apply System Wide" button near the bottom.
