For testing purposes I have configured Firefox to use socks5 proxy 
"localhost:9150", as you suggested, it is working.

Now, the next step is to configure dirmngr to do the same!:


http-proxy socks5://localhost:9150

gives the following error:

ERR 219 Server indicated a failure <Unspecified source>

How can I use socks5 with dirmngr?
