I'm using fedora23 at required proxy.

I set proxy address to /etc/profile, dnf, wget. but I can install nothing by gnome-software.

It seem to connecting direct. (according to netstat)

Where to set proxy address for gnome-software?

For Gnome3 you have to use the gsettings interface and the scheme is org.gnome.system.proxy.

Here is a little how-to for these settings.

Thank you for teach me about gsettings.

I can't confirm the machine not now (only on weekday), but I think i was set proxy for browser by using gnome-control-center, (on custom user's desktop) and result of "gsettings get org.gnome.system.proxy mode" should become "manual".

so,,, I guess,,, I have to execute gsettings by root user?

Just saw that there also should be a tool dconf-editor which is a graphical tool. The settings are user based, so you do not have to execute that as root.

Excuse my late reply.

As a result, "sudo gsettings ..." was not effect.

There were still processes like bellow.

tcp        0      1 localhost.localdo:54346  SYN_SENT    969/NetworkManager 
tcp        0      1 localhost.localdo:59582 proxy09.fedorapro:https SYN_SENT    1614/packagekitd

And, I did "ndf update", it solved (I can install apps by gnome-software) for some reason.

"packagekitd" become to connect to proxy, but, "NetworkManager" still try to connect direct.``
