How to Install Citrix Receiver for Linux 12.0 on openSUSE 12.1 Submitted by ingram on Sun, 02/05/2012 - 10:53am Printer-friendly versionPDF version Citrix Receiver

Citrix Receiver for Linux is software that lets you access enterprise data, applications, and desktops from any Linux workstation. Although you should be able to install Citrix Receiver on any distribution of Linux, this tutorial is designed and tested for openSUSE 12.1 32 bit. If you want to install Citrix Receiver for Ubuntu, check out this tutorial. To download Citrix Receiver, go to the download page and download the .rpm file for x86 systems:


To install Citrix Receiver, dependencies, and make Firefox's certificates available to Citrix, run these commands (this assumes you downloaded the .rpm package into the Download folder):

sudo zypper addrepo -f http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/packman/suse/12.1/ packman
sudo zypper refresh
cd ~/Downloads
wget http://www.openmotif.org/files/public_downloads/openmotif/2.3/2.3.3/openmotif-2.3.3-1.suse10.3.i586.rpm
sudo zypper install ./openmotif-2.3.3-1.suse10.3.i586.rpm ./ICAClient-12.0.0-0.i386.rpm ffmpeg
sudo cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts

Well afterwards, I did the following and I guess that this was a very very wrong step!!!!

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.
