  1. When invoking the Citrix Receiver from either Firefox or the Citrix Receiver, the Citrix window will flash up quickly then disappear and then after about 3 minutes the VM will appear and all is well. How can I get rid of the long delay?

  2. Do you have more details about invoking Citrix Receiver with Linux command line. The edocs does not show details about specifying the actual server.

I'm also using Citrix Receiver on Ubuntu 13.04 over Internet, I don't have this delay. Did you try from the command line wfica.sh ? –  Phil2.0 Jun 6 '13 at 21:57

Create a symlink like this:

ln -sf /dev/urandom /dev/random

See the 6th post here:

I'm utilizing the receiver and this helps out tremendously. I also noticed that it went away after a reboot (Ubuntu install in VMWare Fusion 5).

I created a shell script:

/etc/init.d/symlink.sh

#!/bin/bash
ln -sf /dev/urandom /dev/random

I then added the pathe (/etc/init.d/symlink.sh) to /etc/rc.local.

Good luck.

You should keep in mind that this link effectively replaces /dev/random with the much less random /dev/urandom - for the whole system!! see comments #10 and #16 on the forum you linked to. –  guntbert Jun 21 at 9:21
