I recently upgraded from 14.04 to 16.04 and tried locating the VMWare Horizon View Client package by using steps outlined here: How to install VMware View Client?
I received the following error :
E: Unable to locate package vmware-view-client
Therefore, it seems it is not yet available in the repositories for 16.04.
It looks like it can be downloaded from the VMWare website. To assist with this process, there are some threads about installing VMWare View Client downloaded from website above and getting it to work such as this one.
I am fairly new to Ubuntu and am unsure if there is a greater security risk installing something directly from the VMWare website from which my system will not receive periodic package updates. However, I was able to successfully install the package from the website above. Unfortunately, when I tried to connect to my employer's server, it would just jump back to the login screen. I am able to successfully connect to my employer's server on another machine running Windows, and so this problem is isolated to this case.
Should I expect this package to eventually be added to the repositories for 16.04? If I need to stick with the direct download from the VMWare website, are there additional packages that need to be installed to get VMWare Horizon View Client to work correctly on 16.04?
