Citrix Receiver (icaclient) Installation
- Step 0. 64-bit Arch systems only - install 32-bit libs:
from Arch repositories: openmotif, lib32-libxmu, printproto, nspluginwrapper, lib32-alsa-lib, lib32-gcc-libs, lib32-libxft, lib32-gtk2, lib32-libxdamage. From AUR: lib32-libxp, lib32-libxpm, lib32-libxaw, lib32-openmotif
- Step 1. Download Citrix Receiver It can be found here. Choose the latest version of the x86 client in the .tar.gz format.
- Step 2. Unpack the archive:
# 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. Run setupwfc:
# ./setupwfc(Follow all instructions prompted by setupwfc.)
- Step 4. (Applies only for Firefox integration:)
The setup program should have made appropriate links to the "Citrix Receiver for Linux" plugin. You can check this as such:
# find / -name npica.so /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/npica.so
Or you can check if your browser loads the plugin, in Firefox this can be done by typing "about:plugins" in the address bar. If you have a 64-bit version of Firefox, the plugin will not be loaded. You can check below what to do.
Create missing links as such:
# ln -s /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/npica.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
- Step 6. 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
Because ICAClient uses SSL you may need a security certificate to connect to the server, check with the server administrator. If there is a certificate download and place it in
You may then receive the error
You have not chosen to trust the issuer of the server's security certificate. (SSL Error 61). This means you do not have the root Certificate Authority (CA) certificates.
These are already installed on most systems, they are part of the core package
/usr/lib/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/. As root, run the following command:
# cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/
