It’s a hassle.
The first step is to grab the 64bit
deb package from Citrix website. Next install it using
~$ sudo dpkg --install Downloads/icaclient_12.1.0_amd64.deb
This results in the following error:
dpkg: error processing icaclient (--install): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 Errors were encountered while processing: icaclient
Which can be fixed by changing line 2648 in
echo $Arch|grep "i[0-9]86" >/dev/null
echo $Arch|grep -E "i[0-9]86|x86_64" >/dev/null
And then execute
~$ sudo dpkg --configure icaclient

Next, when trying to actually use the Citrix Receiver to launch any apps, I’ve encountered the following error:
Contact your help desk with the following information: You have not chosen to trust "AddTrust External CA Root", the issuer of the server's security certificate (SSL error 61)
In my case the missing root certificate was Comodo’s AddTrust External CA Root, depending on the certificate used by the server you’re trying to connect to, you may miss some other root certificate. Now you can either download the certificate from Comodo, or use the one in
/usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/AddTrust_External_Root.crt (they are the same). Either way, you should copy the certificate to the
icaclient certificate directory:
$ sudo mv /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/AddTrust_External_Root.crt /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/
These steps got Citrix working for me, but your mileage may vary.
4 thoughts on “Installing Citrix Receiver on Ubuntu 64bit”
I had the same issues when I installed Citrix a year or so back (but in my case, the missing cert was from Entrust).
Just a heads up: Things seem to be totally broken in Ubuntu 13.04. It has the same problems installing, but even after working around those – it just doesn’t seem to work. As a workaround I’ve just been using older versions of Linux and Windows in VMs.
It’s hard to believe that Citrix still hasn’t fixed their installer after all this time, but apparently they have very little interest in supporting Linux users.
Copying all the whole mozilla/* is also an option. That’s what i did and worked!
Thank you for this guide.
Thank you! Did the trick for me! 🙂
Here is an install procedure that can be added to a deployment bash script.
It has been tested and works on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit using the latest version of Mozilla Firefox.
