Thanks for your help!!!!!!! I have installed citrix and start applications from the Citrix's web site..

There is just a problem with the plugin.. Mozilla can't detect the citrix driver and every time after I logined to the website appear a message telling me I need to install "Citrix Receiver" .


"Click Install to Access your application" "INSTALL" (big button and green one)

are you sure you cannot ignore this prompt? in my case highly visible popup with bright buttons offering me to install client appears every time i log-in, but i can click something like "Cancel" or "proceed to login" for good.

for me this was a two step process:

  1. Download "Receiver for Linux 12.1 Release date: 4/23/2012" - ICAClient_12.1.0-0.x86_64.rpm from Citrix ( /downloads/citrix-receiver/linux/receiver-for-linux-121.html)
  2. Intstall it with yum:

    sudo yum install ICAClient_12.1.0-0.x86_64.rpm

You'll be asked if you want to install some 35+ dependencies (depends on what you have already installed). Accept it. Then browse to your HTTP link, refuse installing client, login, click some "icon" and when asked what to do with launch.ica file browse to /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/ and choose

Note: web is full of advice to install openmotif, libXpm etc. in advance - i did not find it necessary. However YMMV - there's 1001 things called Citrix, i happen to deal with something on my client's site totally out of my control. I don't even know it's name or release version.

When I try to run the launcher the citrix receiver (.desktop file) i get the following error:

/opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfcmgr.bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

How did you overcome this?

If you get a "no such file or directory" error regarding a dependency, find the package that provides the file like this: yum provides - then install that package.

this installed all the dependency's for me: yum install ffmpeg.x86_64 motif.x86_64 motif.i686 alsa-lib.i686 alsa-lib.x86_64 libXaw.x86_64 libXaw.i686 libXp.x86_64 libXp.i686

however, it does not fix the detection for me.

Hello everybody, I have been trying to install the ICA client in my fedora 18 64bits without sucess. Basically I get a buffer overflow (when running it from cli) or a 'process killed by signal 6' when running from kde.

* buffer overflow detected *: /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfica terminated ======= Backtrace: ========= /lib/[0x4b7d0cd5] /lib/[0x4b7cecaa....

I have tried the 64 & 32 bits versions (ICAClient-12.1.0-0.i386.rpm ICAClient_12.1.0-0.x86_64.rpm ICAClient-12.9.999.244295-0.x86_64.rpm) without sucess. I've also reviewed all the library dependencies of both wfica wfcmgr.bin and all of them seem to be there
