I want to install the Forticlient SSL VPN Client on Ubuntu 12.04.

I've downloaded the latest version from the Fortinent support site but when I try to run the installer (vía command line or GUI) it simply does nothing.

I have tried to install both with and without sudo but nothing happens.

I remember some time ago that I successfully installed the same client in CentOS and the client worked fine.

Can anyone help me to install this?

You probably have the Ubuntu 64 bit version (at least it was my case). If so, just install the following package:

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386

This does not work for me: E: Couldn't find package libgtk2.0-0:i386 –  Niels Bom May 25 '12 at 9:23

I have had it to work. However it wants you to accept a License Agreement which it will try to open in xterm. So make sure that xterm has been installed:

sudo apt-get install xterm

For those who are using 64bit ubuntu 14.04 (after clean install you have to install these packages)

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386 libsm6:i386 libstdc++6:i386 xterm

install 32-bit libralies.

$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk

if you can run tunnel but traffic is not going through the tunnel.

You can try this note on Facebook.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  Kevin Bowen Jun 2 '13 at 9:09

Executing sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386 was still giving me errors when running 12.04.

After executing sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk FortiSSL is now running smoothly without any errors.

Welcome Juan! Install openvpn first and try.To install it,type sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn in a terminal and reboot your system.I think this should solve your issue.

I've installed it but appears that openvpn client does not be compatible with Fortinet SSL VPN. –  Juan May 10 '12 at 2:38

only CLI works under Ubuntu 13.10 because packages like libgtk2 or ia32-libs are not available anymore.
