You might want to add this to your Getting Started page:
Getting started for Linux/UNIX/BSD
As root, edit your /etc/resolv.conf file.
sudo emacs /etc/resolv.conf
Remove or comment out all entries below domain and search.
Add the following:
Save the file. Then optionally, to prevent other programs (e.g dhcp) from reseting it:
sudo chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf
Thats it !
Just remember to do:
sudo chattr -i /etc/resolv.conf
if you want to stop using the service, or edit that file again.July 13, 2012 at 06:44 #1182

Running firefox 14.0.1 under Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Followed instructions to the letter, but get “sorry, Canada, videos not available” message when I try ComedyCentral. Any suggestions?September 5, 2012 at 07:59 #1896
I was successful in getting a mac to switch DNS values. Now I want to do the same with an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS machine w/ Gnome Classic. I understand the process of changing the resolv.conf file. How do I do the “Switch” operation? On the mac I have a toolbar icon. Where is the switch in Ubuntu/Gnome?September 15, 2012 at 06:23 #1998
This is my easy-to-follow 10 steps guide: tested on ubuntu 12.04 no terminal used.
1. Connect to a network.
2. On Dash Home search for “Network Connections” Open
3. If is a wireless click the wireless tab, click on your connection name and click Edit.
4. A new edit window shows up, click on IPv4 Settings Tab.
5. Under “Method” choose Automatic (DHCP) addresses only.
6. On the DNS Servers field put the DNS servers provided here.
Example: 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206
7. Note that both DNS servers are on the same field and separated by a comma.
8. Click on Save…
9. Disconnect the network and connect again.
10. Enjoy :)September 16, 2012 at 22:46 #2009
I confirm that when I use ubuntu/mint I also never use terminal to change the DNS!
At the top/bottom of your desktop depending on the distro there should be a wireless icon – you right click on it to change settings as described above

Varttino’s instructions are spot on!
Sometimes may have to restart the browser if it’s already open when switching dns.October 7, 2012 at 22:21 #2391
It’s actually a great and helpful piece of info. I am satisfied that you simply shared this helpful info with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.October 8, 2012 at 19:41 #2398
I did what Varttino said on his post (without terminal), it works fine with Ubuntu 12.04
Thanks a lot!October 25, 2012 at 14:45 #2592
I wish salsaman includes a mention to Varttino’s solution in the original post and make it easier for the casual user to get instructions easily.October 26, 2012 at 19:47 #2610
It works with a live disk cd and Chromium browser and I would like to know if this way is as good as virtualization for privacy and security concerns.
P.s.I use Puppy Linux

In Ubuntu if you don’t want to have to edit the connection settings every time you switch you can create a new wired or wireless connection with an appropriate name such as “[my SSID] tunlr” and use that to connect. I would uncheck the box that says “Connect Automatically”. You’ll have to create one for each network you want to use tunlr on. Network manager will list the SSID with a little arrow shows both your configurations.November 11, 2012 at 19:27 #2745
Wow, this really works! Thanks a lot guys!!November 18, 2012 at 06:47 #2790
Varttino, this works awesome in Ubuntu 12.10
Big Thank youNovember 21, 2012 at 12:44 #2817
But unfortunatly it doesn’t work for VPN-connections. The DNS-Servers of VPN-connection will not be written into resolv.confDecember 2, 2012 at 21:14 #2886
Someone made a dns changer script for linux. Can be found here: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/DNS+changer+?content=155175
It requires a bit of tweaking to get it to work but after that its easy.December 28, 2012 at 21:08 #2988
This is great stuff! Changing DNS settings works like a charm under Fedora16. Just 30 sec and I was able to connect. I am impressed!February 12, 2013 at 18:03 #3424
I hope someone can help me with this, because i’m getting really desperate :\ !
Whenever I get to the step in which I have to input the command line “sudo chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf , after I hit enter I get this answer :
“chattr: Operation not supported while reading flags /etc/resolv.conf”
Or at least it should be *something* like this, because my ubuntu is in italian :\ !
Btw, I’m using Xubuntu 12.10.February 17, 2013 at 05:31 #3494

here my information in French and for Debian and likely many others.
1. Faire un clic droit sur l’icône de l’Applet NetworkManager. Choisir “Modification des connexions”.
2. Choisir “Filaire” (mais avec “sans fil” ça doit le faire aussi)
3. Sélectionnez votre connexion puis cliquez sur le bouton “Modifier”
4. Sélectionnez l’onglet “Paramètres IPv4″
5. Si votre connexion est en “Automatique (DHCP)”, passez en “Manuel”
6. Cliquez sur “Ajouter”.
7. Tapez votre adresse IP locale par exemple 192.168.1.4 puis le masque de sous-réseau 255.255.255.0 et la passerelle 192.168.1.1. Vous pouvez avoir toutes ses informations en cliquant droit sur l’icône de NetworkManager et en choisissant “Informations de connexion”.
8. Tapez ou copiez-collez maintenant dans “Serveurs DNS”: 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 (séparés par une virgule) puis cliquez sur “Enregistrer”
9. Et voilà! Il n’y a plus qu’à redémarrer votre navigateur ou même votre ordinateur.
10. Allez à l’adresse http://tunlr.net/status/ pour vérifier votre statut…
Pour moi, cela a sensiblement amélioré ma connexion (il me semble). Je n’ai cependant pas encore testé l’accès à Pandora. Prochaine tentative, entrer ces DNS directement dans ma “Box” (Livebox2 Orange) pour voir…
