I downloaded the Citrix receiver for Linux 13.0 (I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 64bits) from I unpacked it using alien, but when I try to open the receiver from the command line (as explained in the documentation) by typing /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/selfservice it tells me "Command not found". I tried to navigate to the folder from the graphical interface: I can see the file (which is of type application/x-executable) but when I double click on it nothing happens! I tried to right click and check the permissions: the executable case is ticked but it tells me that I cannot modify anything because I am not the owner... I also tried chmod from command line but nothing changes. Does anybody know why this happens??

Are you sure that your system is on 64 bit? If yes, did you downloaded Citrix Receiver for 64-bit systems? Have you read the System requirements and all other documentation? – Radu Rădeanu Jan 26 '14 at 16:21
I checked with synaptics and all the required packages seem to be installed... it's so annoying I double click on the icon and nothing happens, if at least I got an error message I would at least know where to start!! – splinter123 Jan 29 '14 at 20:52
