linux_installer fails (proably proxy)

Following the instructions:

sudo python -c "import urllib2; exec urllib2.urlopen('http://status.calibre-ebook.com/linux_installer').read(); main()"


Fails.

I strongly suspect this is because I need to use a proxy.
So what I'd like to do is run as separate steps . I've manged to download the file linux_installer ... but it's not clear how ...how to run this ...
(typing python linux_installer .. does nothing)

sudo python -c "import urllib2; exec urllib2.urlopen('http://status.calibre-ebook.com/linux_installer').read(); main()"
Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 126, in urlopen
return _opener.open(url, data, timeout)

calibre_postinstall command in the installation dir.
