I had a little trouble installing Citrix Receiver in Crunchbang, on amd64 architecture. Just in case anyone else runs into the same problems, I thought I'd report on how I got it working.
First I made sure I installed a few libraries and their dependencies. The libraries I installed (along with their dependencies) were:
Next I downloaded the Citrix Receiver .deb file from the Citrix website (http://www.citrix.com/site/SS/downloads … ost1349860). When I tried to install it, I got an error about wrong architecture. Google provided me with feedback that a lot of people were having that problem using any Debian based amd64 system. Some of them were uninstalling libmotif4 and installing a 32 bit version from the web. Instead, I just opened a terminal and tried:
#Change to the downloads directory cd downloads #Force the installation (be sure to use the correct package name) sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture icaclient_11.100_i386.patched.deb
Then after exiting the terminal and opening up Chromium browser, I went to my company's website and tried to launch the Citrix client. As expected, Chromium downloaded the file 'launch.ica'. I set it to open with '/usr/lib64/ICAClient/wfica'.
After setting 'launch.ica' to open automatically, I have my Citrix Receiver working exactly as I want it to perform.
This may be extremely simple, but a few months ago, I wouldn't have known how to get it working and would have abandoned the distro. So hopefully it will help someone.
yes I ran into the same problem, so I appreciate your report to get it working on my amd_64bit machine.
BTW: I did not abandone the distro, but the 64bit version of it.
Thx a lot,
Thanks, slowdriver. I'm always reluctant to post something like this, because I figure I'm the only one in the world that needs it. I appreciate the validation.
Thanks a lot!
I had a little trouble installing Citrix Receiver in Crunchbang(20110207,Openbox).
I also downloaded the Citrix Receiver .deb file from the Citrix website(12.0).
I thought I had installed the Citrix Receiver,but I did not find the Citrix.
Help me! Thank you!
here's my story i finally made it work...hope it can help
i constantly had the message that libXm.so.4 was not found...
used a fresh CrunchBang 10 “Statler” R20111125 amd64 and last citrix receiver for 64bits OS (currently icaclient_12.0.0_amd64.deb)
+installed via synaptic.. not sure this is needed
dowload libmotif4 deb for i386 from debian repo and extract it
cd <whereithasbeenextracted>/libmotif4/usr/lib/ sudo cp libXm.so.4.0.3 /usr/lib32/ sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/libXm.so.4.0.3 /usr/lib32/libXm.so.4
get the deb from citrix site and install it via GDebi
check the dependencies
ldd /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfcmgr libXm.so.4 => /usr/lib32/libXm.so.4 (0xf7493000)
should be ok as above
and then run
it's now working like a charm!
hope i haven't forget anything...
