    The commands needed are

    Code:
    export http_proxy=127.0.0.1:8080
    Code:
    export ftp_proxy=127.0.0.1:8080
    You replace the IP Address with yours and also you will need to edit the pacman.conf file in /etc and uncomment the line saying use wget passive then save the file and off you go.
    I hope this helps..
