- I right clicked the downloads folder and chose "Open in terminal"
I ran the following lines:
chmod a+x VMware-Horizon-Client-4.4.0-5167967.x64.bundle sudo ./VMware-Horizon-Client-4.4.0-5167967.x64.bundle
After this, the launcher for the client appears in search, but clicking it only makes it blink several times in the unity bar and then go away. This action is exactly as described here. In this question, it is described that they are able to launch the client with the command
vmware-view. I however, receive the following error with
/usr/lib/vmware/view/bin/vmware-view: error while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This link provides some solutions to a
libudev.so.0: cannot open shared object file error. However, they weren't specific to my problem and I didn't try any of them as I didn't want to risk breaking things.
VMware-view not working for me, how can I fix this error? Is it safe for me to go ahead and try the answer with 170+ upvotes by senshikaze?
`sudo ln -sf /lib/$(arch)-linux-gnu/libudev.so.1 /lib/$(arch)-linux-gnu/libudev.so.0`
