Citrix Receiver problems due to missing in -current of 2018-06-21

Hi everyone,

I just would like to share a litte tip with you. If you cannot log in to your virtual system using Citrix Receiver, the reason might be a version bump of libidn in Slackware64-current.

Citrix Receiver expects, while Slackware64-current has I tried two solution approaches:

(1) Create a symlink:
# ln -sf /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/
(2) Install the previous version of libidn in additon to the current one. is part of the package libidn-1.35-x86_64.txz (packaged for Slackware64-current) and is part of libidn-1.34-x86_64.txz. (For 32-bit Slackware the package name is libidn-1.34-i586-1_slack14.2.txz).

I did only a few *VERY* short tests, but as far as I can tell by now both approaches seem to be working.

Have you all tried the Citrix Workspace? I had all kinds of issues with the Citrix Receiver. I was pointed to the Citrix Workspace which is an add on to chromium Literally go to the link provided and click Launch app and you are done. It even stays up to date for you.
