ica client (.deb) not working in Ubuntu 16.04

by unnikrishnan r   Last Updated September 13, 2017 14:02 PM

Installed the latest available icaclient deb (13.4) and tried to connect to server.

However, not able to connect.

Also tried with old versions of icaclients (13.1, 13.2 and 13.3), didn't help

Followed the doc:


Anyone facing similar issue?

I am using version without any problems on 16.04. I just installed the .deb version. Maybe you should enable connection logs on Receiver to troubleshoot the nature of the problem. See https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/receiver/linux/13-2/linux-about.html to find out how to do that.

Hi I had previously managed to get Citrix Receiver 13.4 working in Kubuntu, Linux Mint and Debian using the Ubuntu "HowTo" doc you referred to. When I tried doing the same in Maui OS, it didn't work until I spotted the little arrow next to my username which gave me a drop down menu with "Activate" and "Logoff". Clicking "Activate" made Citrix work or me. Not sure if everyone will have such a drop down menu, but it might be worth checking. Regards Alan

I had a black/blank screen on second monitor with Ubuntu Gnome 16.10 and icaclient 13.4 after following the guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CitrixICAClientHowTo

I tried to prevent Citrix from starting FULL SCREEN by opening a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), gedit ~/.ICAClient/All_Regions.ini and setting DesiredHRES=1366 and DesiredVRES=768 but that didn't work.

I found that setting TWIMode=False in the All_Regions.ini file solved my issue and even spanned the window across both screens.
