Configuring proxy settings for Google Chrome on Linux

How do I configure proxy settings for Chrome on Linux? It doesn't have a configuration interface like Firefox. I'd like to configure it in a way that I don't have to type every time, the login and password.

"Try the --proxy-server command line option, and/or http_proxy environment variable.

google-chrome-stable --proxy-server=""http://example.com:8080""

Also, Chrome/Chromium makes use of xdg scripts, so you can try configuring the proxy server in GNOME/KDE, and set up xdg scripts to use settings of the desktop environment. That is how I solved MIME-type file associations at least."

"On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with Chrome v53 (64 bit),
I had to set the http_proxy / HTTP_PROXY env variables to ""http://proxyserver:port"" for all users for Chrome to be able to communicate.

Modify /etc/profile

export {http,ftp,https,rsync}_proxy=""http://proxyserver:port""
export {HTTP,FTP,HTTPS,RSYNC}_PROXY=$http_proxy"
