HTTP Error: Cannot resolve proxy hostname

Yes hello,

I am having trouble opening images from location with GIMP. Every time I try to drag and drop or choose File > Open Location I get the error message

GIMP Message
Opening 'http://example.com/' failed:
HTTP Error: Cannot resolve proxy hostname ()

I am connected to the Internet directly, meaning no proxies/vpn/tor or anything like that. I am using Ubuntu 11.10, AMD64 and GIMP 2.6.11. Does anyone have any ideas of a way to narrow down the problem further than "Cannot resolve proxy hostname"?

I attached a screenshot of the error message.

Thanks in advance

It has to be a complete URL to the image location. It won't open a directory or server, only the image. At least that is how it has been working for me. Using your submitted png, click on your own png link and copy and paste that URL into the Open Location menu.
