I've been searching multiple threads, but can't seem to figure out how to get alt + tab to work on Ubuntu 19.04 with the Citrix Workspace app/extension within Chromium (tried Chrome, too). There's also an HTML5 in-browser option available that launches my Citrix desktop, but this doesn't allow for alt + tab either.

  • is alt-tab supposed to work when you use it on windows? have you done so? isn't it some other shortcut like ctrl+tab? have you tried configuring that shortcut in Citrix? – tatsu Jun 13 '19 at 14:50
  • alt+tab works on windows citrix. just won't work on ubuntu – jellz77 Jun 13 '19 at 15:50
  • I guess you'll have to unbind alt-tab. in ubuntu keybinds are caught at a system level so if the system already has a binding the OS gets priority if it doesn't you get to have it be caught by whatever application. you can't have a keybinding for a system action and an application. does this answer your question? – tatsu Jun 13 '19 at 15:53

    you're amazing....problem solved! i disable the keyboard shortcut alt + tab in ubuntu and that fixed it (reassigned it to alt + ` ). Thank you so much – jellz77 Jun 13 '19 at 17:15

i used tatsu's answer above. i reassigned the alt + tab shortcut to alt + ` under settings->devices->keyboard->shortcuts. works like a charm now in chromium :)


Either of these should work

  • sudo vim /etc/icaclient/config/All_Regions.ini
    • Set all occurrences of TransparentKeyPassthrough to Remote
  • use answer above, disable alt+tab shortcut for your linux. it worked for me
