Q: How do I get a Citrix XenApp client working?

A: To install the Citrix XenApp client, you need to do the following:

  • Step 1. Download the Citrix XenApp linux binary. It can be here: citrix.com > Downloads > Linux ICA Clients > Choose the latest version of the x86 client in the .tar.gz format. It reads "x86 client - requires OpenMotif 2.2.x"
  • Step 2. tar zxvf en.linuxx86.tar.gz
# tar zxvf en.linuxx86.tar.gz
./
./PkgId
./install.txt
./eula.txt
./readme.txt
./setupwfc
./linuxx86/
./linuxx86/hinst
./linuxx86/linuxx86.cor/
./linuxx86/linuxx86.cor/nls/
./linuxx86/linuxx86.cor/nls/en/
./linuxx86/linuxx86.cor/nls/en/UTF-8/
./linuxx86/linuxx86.cor/nls/en/UTF-8/Wfica
./linuxx86/linuxx86.cor/nls/en/UTF-8/Wfcmgr
... many more files ...
  • Step 3. ./setupwfc (follow all instructions prompted by setupwfc)
  • Step 4. (applies only for Firefox integration)ln -s /usr/lib/ICAClient/npica.so /opt/mozilla/lib/plugins/
  • Step 5. pacman -S community/openmotif
  • Step 6. (might not be necessary) ln -s /usr/lib/libXm.so.4 /usr/lib/libXm.so.3
  • Step 7. Restart your browser


At this point, everything should work, including wfcmgr. In the case of Opera, integration should be automatic. The ICAClient will automatically be launched whenever you try to access a citrix-based application from either Firefox or Opera.

Note: If for some reason firefox prompts you for which application to use when opening a citrix-based application, use /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfica
