Citrix provide a version of their Receiver software packaged for Linux. Version 12.1 is current and is available from their website.
I’m currently running Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit (yes, I know, I intend to update soon) so I downloaded and installed the 64-bit debian package based on the CitrixICAClientHowTo. This installed with the following error:
$ sudo dpkg -i icaclient_12.1.0_amd64.deb Selecting previously deselected package icaclient. (Reading database ... 204950 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking icaclient (from icaclient_12.1.0_amd64.deb) ... Setting up icaclient (12.1.0) ... dpkg: error processing icaclient (--install): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 Errors were encountered while processing: icaclient
This is because the
postinst script contains a function that tries to determine whether you are using an Intel or ARM type chip, and the logic used to detect Intel hasn’t been updated to include a check for
x86_64 – it runs
uname -m and looks for
You can fix this by unpacking the deb and editing the regular expression in line 2648 of the
postinst script to match
x86_64, then rebuild the deb and install that. It works fine for me – although bear in mind the dependencies for the package:
libc6-i386 (>= 2.7-1),
I’ve posted simple instructions for rebuilding debian packages before, but there’s lots of info out there on the web.
