Once the updates finish on my new install of Mint I am planning on installing the Citrix receiver so I can use my laptop remotely for work. Historically Citrix hasn't provided much support for the x64 receiver .deb but I found one on their site. Just wondering if anyone has had any luck installing the receiver AND getting it to work properly? I found some instructions (link below) but I am hesitant to follow them since they basically saying to use x32 files on the x64 system.

Instructions: http://forums.citrix.com/thread.jspa?threadID=309878

I've followed similar instructions in the past but when it came time to connect I get cert errors which then turns into a whole new mess. Is anyone aware of how to set this up and ensure it will work when I'm done with the installation?

I don't have any experience with Citrix on Linux, but I think of Citrix as a Windows-Mac sort of thing. It's what I think when I think Photoshop, DreamWeaver, AutoCAD, the user base is so small for Linux that really the only specialized thing it's good for as an end-user OS is programming, but even then it's not like I can go install Visual Express 2010 on my Mint partition.

I'm sure there exists a suitable Citirix alternative for Linux, assuming you didn't invest too much into Citrix.

Linux will rule one day, just not today.

Well I got it to work. Not sure if Citrix "fixed" their issues but it installed just fine this go around. The only caveat was copy the certs from the Mozilla directory to the keystore.

sudo cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts

I can now remote into my work without having to reboot into Windows or not use Linux at all.

Oh well I'm glad it worked out. I didn't even know Citrix supported Linux before this thread, but it makes sense as they're all about networks and networks are about servers and servers are about Linux many times.

Here's to hoping more Linux support for other applications arrives soon!

Downloaded the file for x64 from here: http://www.citrix.com/English/ss/downloads/details.asp?downloadId=2323812&productId=1689163

Followed the instructions from here: http://forums.citrix.com/thread.jspa?threadID=306353
Here's what I did to get it to install:
1. Install the .deb and let it fail
2. Edit /var/lib/dpkg/info/icaclient.postinst
3. Replace the line that says echo $Arch|grep "i[0-9]86" >/dev/null with *echo $Arch|grep -E "i[0-9]86|x86_64" >/dev/null (note the -E after grep!)
4. Run dpkg --configure icaclient
After that I did the command noted above:
[background=rgb(245, 245, 245)]sudo cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts[/background]

Did this on Ubuntu x64 works great!
