I'm running Kubuntu and tried installing VMware Horizon Client... However, it doesn't seem to be installing properly.

I used chmod and sudo ./ to execute the bundle and get to the installer, however, upon the installer finishing it - the app doesn't start and is no where to be found...

This is shown in the terminal -

Extracting VMware Installer...done.
/tmp/vmis.MVrY7D/install/vmware-installer/vmis/ui/gui.py:870: GtkWarning: IA__gtk_progress_set_percentage: assertion 'percentage >= 0 && percentage <= 1.0' failed

Can anyone help me with this? (Note - This also happened whilst trying to install the Horizon Client on a VirtualBox partition: this happened in Mint, Kubuntu 14.04 (I'm using V15) and Ubuntu 14.04).

On Ubuntu 14.04 it is in the repository for "Canonical Partners". Check this option on tab "Other Software" in "Software & Updates" and you will find it.

It is an installer with an graphical frontend. If you try to install the .Bundle from Terminal, then you could try something like:

cd Downloads
chmod +x VMware-Horizon-Client-4.0.1-3698616.x64.bundle
gksudo ./VMware-Horizon-Client-4.0.1-3698616.x64.bundle
