Citrix: Installing Citrix Receiver 11 on Ubuntu 11

1. Download Citrix receiver 11 from Citrix
Linux i386 Citrix Receiver V.11 – tar,gz
Linux Armel Citrix Receiver V. 11 – tar.gz
2. tar -zxvf filename.tar.gz
3. cd into the decompressed directory
4. type “sudo ./setupwfc” press enter
5. Enter your password
6. Follow the setup prompts until finished
7. type sudo apt-get install libmotif4
8. Copy Firefox’s .crt’s to Citrix’s certs folder: type sudo cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla /usr/lib/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts (The Firefox certs are found in different locations depending on OS version.)
9. At this point everything should work, but you may need to change the application preferences in Firefox to point ICA files to /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfica,sh if it does not start.

There are a lot of variations to this install.  When I have had libmotif issues with older versions of older versions of libmotif, I have been able to trick the application by using the following:
1. goto /usr/lib/
2. find -name libXm.so.*
3. depending on your version you can like it: sudo ln –s /usr/lib/libXm.so.3.0.2 /usr/lib/libXm.so.4

Extra security: If you are encrypting your home directory and would like this to be part of this security you can install this into ~/ as the user.  Follow the above direction but change the target directory.

Also here are some notes from Citrix on how to install this on older versions of Ubuntu:
