How to add Google Chrome support
You can open Citrix receiver apps by clicking a link in your browser. You don't need an extension for that.
Just click on the app shortcut in Google Chrome and download the
.ica file. When it is downloaded, click the arrow next to the filename in the bottom bar of Chrome and choose "always open files of this type".
That's it! Next time you click on a Citrix app, it will be started automatically.

How to solve SSL error 61
This error happens because Citrix receiver doesn't trust enough certificates. You fix this by adding all the certificates Firefox trusts to Citrix. Just open a terminal and execute the following command.
sudo ln -s /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts
They now provide a 64-bit version of the
.deb package. Unfortunately, the 64-bit package checks if the system is a 32-bit system. Obviously, the check fails.
I've modified the package to properly check for 64-bit system (and 32-bit actually for no reason really).
You can find my modified package here.
It was literally a one character change to
postinst. Hope this helps somebody.

The detailed guide on install and usage of Citrix Workspace app in Linux I have explained in my blog below which Tested in 20.04 LTS, 20.10, Fedora 32, Fedora 33
However, here is a summary of the steps.
Install Citrix Workspace App for Fedora, Red Hat, and Other .rpm based distributions
Download the below .rpm package for 64-bit systems. Go to the below link. Click on RPM Packages, then Red Hat Full Package (self-service support). Then click on Download file under “Citrix Workspace app for Linux (x86_64)”
Open the .rpm package via Software or any package manager for installation. All the dependencies should already be present in your current system.
Install Citrix Workspace App for Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Other Debian based distributions
Download the below .deb package for 64-bit systems. Go to the below link. Click on Debian Packages, then Full Package (self service support). Then click on Download file under “Citrix Workspace app for Linux (x86_64)”
Open the .deb package via Software or any package manager for installation. All the dependencies should already be present in your current system.
After installation, you can visit your Citrix VM page and log in via browser. The .ICA file association would be taken care of by the installer.
I made sure that I uninstalled the 64 bit package, and dpkg --force-architecture -i libmotif4*i386.deb so that I installed the 32 bit package,http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/o/openmotif/libmotif4_2.3.3-5_i386.deb, you can only have one or the other installed, not both at the same time as far as I know.
My Citrix receiver now functions. Regards,Tom.
(You will find getlibs in ppa:jcollins/jaminppa)
getlibs -w getlibs -w http://launchpadlibrarian.net/62541723/libmotif4_2.3.3-5ubuntu1_i386.deb/libmotif4_2.3.3-5_i386.deb sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libXm.so.4 /usr/lib32/libXm.so.4
The ICA client should now start normally:
# /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr -icaroot /usr/lib/ICAClient
Use version 19.12 I cant get ANY versions later than this to work. I dont know if is related to what server my company is running so your mileage may vary.
Here is the download page, bit hard to find the pages for old versions. https://www.citrix.com/downloads/workspace-app/legacy-workspace-app-for-linux/workspace-app-for-linux-1912.html
