Citrix client on Eee PC needs libXm.so.3


I am trying to get the Citrix client to run on an Eee PC. Running wfcmgr yields "error while opening shared libraries: libXm.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory".

Running "apt-get install libmotif3" tells me that "libmotif3 is already the newest version."

I find libXm.so.3 in /usr/X11R6/lib and have created links to it in /usr/lib and in /usr/lib/ICAClient but I still get the error.

What is my next step to get Citrix working? This is for our Director and he's becoming impatient.

Many thanks.

Run setupwfc in the main directory where you unzipped the download. That installs it fine, but what you're trying to run won't do it.

Install works, but...

Thank you for your reply, sgosnell.

If I understand this whole process, it's not the install that is the problem, it's the actual running of the client. Running setupwfc, as you suggest, seems to work fine. It's only when I try to run wfcmgr and actually use the client that I get the error msg regarding libXm.so.3.

In other threads devoted to this issue, users have succeeded by installing openmotif or by placing links in /usr/lib to libXm.so.3. None of that has worked for me. Am I missing something?

All I do to use Citrix is to log in to the Citrix server through my browser, which then gives me the presentation server window. I don't run anything other than my browser. This is exactly the same way I do it using Windows. If your company has a different way to do it, you need to see your IT folks.

Sorry, double post somehow. It didn't show up on the first or second refresh.

Alas, I am 0.25 of our IT department. The boss wants to use the native client, not a web interface; I can't just tell him to man up and use the web. And, heck, there's got to be a way to make it work. I am in danger of losing any enthusiasm for open source that I've been able to nurture here...

Thank you, sgnosnell - by uninstalling version 10.6 of the citrix client and installing version 7 (and then creating the neccessary sym links) I was able to get the citrix client working.

I was also able to add an icon to the gui by following the instructions at

http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?pid=31854#p31854

The login was taking several minutes until I changed the connection setting from TCP/IP + HTTP to TCP/IP alone.

The only problem that remains is how to transfer files between the Eee and the server. When I run Win Explorer on the remote desktop from a Win PC, the client allows you to see "C$ on client" so you can move files back and forth. Is there some way to get the Linux citrix client to do that?

Once again, many thanks. The Eee is a great little device. Too bad this one has to talk to M$.

Hmmm... I hadn't noticed that, because I haven't needed to transfer any files since I got my Eee, and seldom do anyway. It seems Citrix isn't smart enough to decode the Unix-type file delimiters. That's the only explanation I can come up with right now. I don't see the local computer showing up, either, just the remote system. One thing that might solve your problems is using a Java client and server. Citrix does come with this, if you can find it. I haven't used it, but I've seen references to it, and have seen posts by people who are using the java client on their Linux and Mac machines. It requires installing something on the server end also, and I can't help you there. With a Java-based server and client, you should get the same results on any platform.
