VMWare Horizon Installs Fine but does not Start

Hi all,

I am new to Fedora and have recently installed the latest version (28). I downloaded and installed the VMWare Horizon virtual desktop client successfully and set all the post-EULA parameters to "no" as per stuff I found with Google, except for the ability to access a USB drive.

When I click the icon to open the program, it simply does not start. I am wondering what else I can do at this point. I installed some other random things (again, as per online guides I found on Google) but that has not helped beyond getting the program installed.

I'd contact their tech support but they say I need to contact them through the university, and the university says I need to contact them, and etc. I have the program running fine on Mint and Lubuntu, it'd just be nice to get it going on Fedora so I can run it on my nice(r) laptop.

UPDATE:

When I try to open it in terminal it throws the following error:

/usr/lib/vmware/view/bin/vmware-view-crtbora: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libpangomm-1.4.so.1: undefined symbol: _ZN4Glib6ObjectC2EOS0_

When I enter ldd /usr/lib/vmware/view/bin/vmware-view It returns a couple of things as missing: libssl.so.1.0.2 => not found libcrypto.so.1.0.2 => not found

I can't for the life of me figure out how to install these things.

start it from command line and read/post the output. There is very little information provided we could work with.

Have you seen the following posts?

Hey Florian,

When I try to open it in terminal it throws the following error:

/usr/lib/vmware/view/bin/vmware-view-crtbora: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libpangomm-1.4.so.1: undefined symbol: _ZN4Glib6ObjectC2EOS0_

Googled around on that and couldn't find anything. When I enter

ldd /usr/lib/vmware/view/bin/vmware-view

It returns a couple of things as missing:

libssl.so.1.0.2 => not found
libcrypto.so.1.0.2 => not found

I can't for the life of me figure out how to install these things.

To answer your question I had seen the first and third links, but not the second. I was able to successfully install everything therein but still have the same symptoms.

Another thing: I tried simply typing vmware-view into the terminal, which produces:

Using log file /tmp/vmware-MathFareswell/vmware-view-5530.log

Unexpected signal: 11. Unexpected signal: 11.

According to Google this implies a hardware fault, but I can run the same program on the same hardware using Mint instead of Fedora.

Looks like there was a problem resolving binaries it needed so we are specifying the path specifically in first suggestion or doing by rollback to vmware view version using the second one.

Try running using below command:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/vmware /usr/lib/vmware/view/bin/vmware-view

or

ROLLBACK_VMWAREVIEW=1 vmware-view

Worked in >= Fedora 26. Thanks to @jburgess in Fedora forum
