Running Citrix on Ubuntu Linux

Posted by Mike on March 1st, 2009

Yesterday, I did a rather painless upgrade of Linux on my PC from Ubuntu 7.10 to 8.10.  My PC is setup to dual boot, with the other OS being Windows XP Professional.  I keep that around for Citrix, Quickbooks, and testing webpages on Internet Explorer and Opera.   One of the last things to finish for this upgrade was to get Citrix working.

I use Citrix to work remotely for my employer.  I was never able to get Citrix working in Ubuntu 7.10, although it worked just fine in Ubuntu 6.06.  (Something about library incompatabilities.)  As usual, I Googled for help.  This time I found a great tutorial called Running Citrix ICA client on Linux – Ubuntu 8.10.  Unlike many tutorials, this one was straight-forward, to the point, simple, and it worked!  My thanks to Cary Brown.

Now for the big suprise.  Running Citrix on Linux is twice as fast as it was for me on Windows XP!  What a nice surprise.

    Great Blog Mike!…. Glad my post helped. I use the Citrix client all the time in Linux and it is nice to have my Windows environment at work and Linux at home.
