Angry Citrix Client Install


Hello,
I downloaded the latest citrix client from the citrix website for linux x86. I extracted the files into a folder under etc that I created called files. I followed the instruction from the citrix websites, I am getting an error, when I type ./setupwfc* or ./setupwfc at the terminal window. I made sure that I downloaded the client for linux.
"This installation is not the correct type for a Linux (x86) workstation." link to linux client download page

This installation is not the correct type for a Linux (x86) workstation

Same error
su -
untar to temp dir
enter temp dir
enter linuxx86.cor dir
./setupwfc

error: This installation is not the correct type for a Linux (x86) workstation

the manual doesn't talk about this error.

I tried installing the rpm version but i get no binaries on my system.

Tried older versions: similar problems.

3 years after this first post with the newst ica client downloaded from the site. And i've got the same error. Has anybody ever been able to solve this problem?
Google gives me nothing. Nada. Zilch.

Anybody?

Lightbulb Dirty hack

Hi,

I anybody encounters this same problem, here's a dirty hack to avoid it.
Open the file setupwfc in your editor of choice (vi ofcoz )
Search for the part:
------------
# Check we're on the correct platform
cat ${MyLocation}/pkginf/V* | grep "^PORT=$PLATFORM" >/dev/null 2>&1
if [ "$?" != "0" ]
then
echo
echo $setup3a $DISP_PLATFORM $setup3b
echo
# exit 1
fi
--------------
change the line
exit 1
to
# exit 1
and try again.

As I said: this is realy ugly. It doesn't solve the problem, it just ignores it so that the installer doesn't quit on it. It should get the program installed for you.
I'm not sure if this has other consequences coz I still haven't got my citrix connection working. I still got errors but I'm pretty sure they are unrelated. (certificate errors)

(pretty, not definitvely.. it is citrix after all )

And while I'm typing here I just want to utter my anoyance at the linuxversion, the support and the documentation that a big company like citrix is offering: AARRRGH!!

Annoyance uttered.

Thank you all.
