I have installed the Citrix Receiver as described for Ubuntu 13.10 here: CitrixICAClientHowTo

The installation has succeded under Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit. But if I start the Citrix Receiver nothing happens.

Is there someone who has it running with Ubuntu 14.04?


This worked for me: http://www.tuxtrix.com/2013/11/how-to-install-citrix-receiver-13-on.html

If apt-get gives you any errors along the lines of "The following packages have unmet dependencies:" remember to sudo dpkg -P icaclient.

  • Sorry for the late response. I reinstalled all again following the instructions from above. Now it is working. But only when I start the applications from the browser. In earlier Versions it was possible to start the desktops and applications from the start menu. – tpf Jul 8 '14 at 6:39

I followed the below steps and it worked for me:

  1. Download Citrix for Linux 64 bit from http://www.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-receiver/linux/receiver-for-linux-130.html
  2. Follow instructions in "Citrix Receiver 12.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit" section from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CitrixICAClientHowTo
  3. In case of any Verisign certificate errors, export the certificates mentioned in the errors (eg: VeriSign Class 3 International Server CA - G3) from Mozilla Firefox: Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Encryption > View Certificates, and browse the list to find the VeriSign entries.
  4. Export the ones that are Class 3, one by one, in X509 format (PEM), and store them in your "cacert" folder with the .crt extension (you have to manually add the extension when you save the certificates). Copy it to /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/.

  • Why hasn't Citrix automated the certificate installation in their installer? – blong Sep 17 '15 at 14:43

Try the following:

sudo apt-get install libmotif4:i386 nspluginwrapper lib32z1 libc6-i386 libxp6:i386 libxpm4:i386 libasound2:i386

from: https://www.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-receiver/receivers-by-platform/receiver-for-linux-121.html

Note: Get the download from the "For 64-bit Systems" section. If the Download popup doesn't work in Chrome, use Firefox.

cd ~/Downloads
mkdir ica_temp
dpkg-deb -x icaclient_12.1.0_amd64.deb ica_temp
dpkg-deb --control icaclient_12.1.0_amd64.deb ica_temp/DEBIAN
sudo gedit ica_temp/DEBIAN/control

sudo dpkg -i icaclient-modified.deb

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

/opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfcmgr &
