Python error with OpenLayers plugin QGIS 2

Python error with OpenLayers plugin QGIS 2

I've been using QGIS for a while but since using QGIS 2 the OpenLayers plugin doesn't work for me on my home PC. However, I have installed the same version at my workplace with success. I have looked through other posts, and tried setting the CRS and allowing on the fly but it doesn't work for me.

Can anyone offer any other guidance?

I have also tried uninstall/ re-install.

Error code below:

An error has occurred while executing Python code:

If the OpenLayers plugin fails with an error in 'getProxy', verify that the proxy settings in the options menu are correct.

FIY, the QGIS dev are thinking about deprecating the OpenLayers plugin in favor of QuickMapServices (already available in the extensions)

Why? It's mainly an outdated plugin you should avoid. It was useful some years ago but it doesn't deal well with projections.

I had the same problem and the solution was

settings>option>network (uncheck proxy)

And this was the end of my problem
