For a while there, I was struggling to get the Citrix client installed on my computer. It was frustrating, and I put hours into debugging it, and trying to get it to work. In the end, I took a circuitous route, installing VirtualBox in Ubuntu, Windows in VirtualBox, Firefox in Windows, and finally Citrix in Firefox.
Last week, I took another stab at getting this done, and for some reason it went very smoothly. To install Citrix in Ubuntu Hardy Heron, begin by downloading the Citrix client as a .tar.gz.
Next, unpack the install file using the terminal by running:
sudo tar xvfz en.linuxx86.tar.gz
Change into the Citrix directory, and run
This will begin the install script. As it proceeds, simply allow the default settings, and you should be good.
The final step is to install the root certificates. To do this, attempt to start a Citrix program, and it may fail, reporting an error message. In the message, it will tell you what certificates it needs installed. Go to this website, and download the certificates the error message informed you that you need by right clicking their download links, and selecting “Save as…” Once those are downloaded, rename their extension so they are .crt files, and move them to
Restart Firefox, and you should be good.
Thanks to Skarh for this how to.
