There is no package called openmotif, so how do I install it on Ubuntu 12.04? It's needed according to Citrix, for using Citrix Receiver 12.1 for Linux.

What about installing the package called "libmotif4"? Will that do the trick? – Svante Jun 5 '12 at 6:24
I really have not tried that, but you can give it a shot. – Mitch Jun 5 '12 at 6:26
  1. Install packages libmotif4 & nspluginwrapper (you can use synaptic package manager)

  2. Download the Receiver you need from (.deb file)

  3. Open the downloaded file

  4. Add the certificates to avoid SSL error

    sudo ln -s /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/

Installation should be as simple as installing the libmotif-dev package. So

sudo apt-get install libmotif-dev

in some cases packages for ubuntu are named little bit differently

  1. so you need to search by package name
  2. or to search for package contents

    apt-cache search 'pattern'
    apt-file search 'path'

this is a universal solution
