Citrix Receiver

Citrix Receiver for Linux is software that lets you access enterprise data, applications, and desktops from any Linux workstation. Although you should be able to install Citrix Receiver on any distribution of Linux, this tutorial is designed and tested for Ubuntu 11.10 32 bit. If you want to install Citrix Receiver for openSUSE, check out this tutorial.

To download Citrix Receiver, go to the download page and download the .deb file for x86 systems:

To install Citrix Receiver, dependencies, and make Firefox's certificates available to Citrix, run these commands (this assumes you downloaded the .deb package into the Download folder):

sudo apt-get install libmotif4 ffmpeg
sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/icaclient_12.0.0_i386.deb
sudo cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts

​That's it, you can now log into your Citrix web portal and connect to your desktop or application. If you want to install Citrix Receiver for Ubuntu, check out this tutorial.:



You may get an error message like this when you try to launch your desktop/application from the web portal:

SSL error

Contact your help desk with the following information: You have not chosen to trust "/C=US/ST=/L=/0=The Go Daddy Group, Inc./OU=Go Daddy Class 2 Certification Authority/CN=", the issuer of the server's security certificate (SSL error 61).


Citrix has it's own certificate folder, so make sure you copy the certificates from Firefox to the /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts folder as described above. If you have already done that, then you will have to manually download the required certificate and put it in the cacerts folder.

Thanks, installing that certificate did the trick for me. It kept saying I wasn't accepting this or that kind of certificate, but it isn't anymore.
