Install Citrix IcaClient v9.0 on linux: a how to


Hi,

I had to fight my way through the install of Citrix IcaClient v9.0 (download: http://www.citrix.com/lang/English/downloads.asp or http://www.citrix.com/English/SS/dow...D=3323&pID=186) on my Mandriva2006 box so I thought it would be good to share my expierences with you.

1a. The Citrix client depends on OpenMotif 2.2 so this we need to install first. On Ubuntu this is easy via "apt-get install libmotif3 libmotif-dev libxaw6" (see http://www.zwhlug.nl/content/citrix_...bian_gnu_linux or http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-85398.html) but the OpenMotif 2.2 is not available via the Mdk repositories.

Go to http://www.motifzone.com/ to download v2.2 or higher. Install.

1b. Add a sym-link to the openmotif library-file (because Citrix is looking in the wrong place). Something like:

ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.so.3 /usr/lib/libXm.so.3

2. Install the ICAClient.rpm from the citrix site.

3. [if you need/want the ica-client as a firefox-plugin]: create a link from the firefox plugins-dir to the ica-client plugin file. F.i. via this command:

ln –s /usr/lib/ICAClient/npica.so <path to firefox plugins dir>/npica.so

4. The client comes with a very limited set of root certificates only. So very often you need to add your own needed root certificates. Download or copy them from somewhere (f.i. http://www.geotrust.com/resources/ro...ates/index.asp or from your browser) to the icaclient-certificates-directory (/usr/lib/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts by default) AND (!!!!) make sure that the extension is correct (this depends on the version of the client). I had to (simply) rename the extension of my equifax certificate from .cer to .crt and that did the trick. If you use the same extension as the certificates from the default install you should be safe.

That should be all (I hope). When will Citrix get their linux documentation&install together?

Good luck, Ronald

Great help!

G'day Ronald,

Similar for 10.6. It failed due to the missing certificates, which you -luckily- mentioned in section 4.

I did not know which to use: the clean or the DER version. Which one of them works, i do not know. In version 10.6 it is no longer sensitive for the extension: .cer or .crt, since .cer works as well.

Thanks for the great work of collecting the info an sharing it with the community.

Regards,
Henk
