1. Download the Citrix client for Linux (tar.gz). Open a terminal in the folder in which you downloaded the Citrix package, and unpack it with

tar -zxvf en.linuxx86.tar.gz

or whatever the file is named, and enter the unpacked directory:

cd en.linuxx86

2. Run the installation script :

sudo ./setupwfc

3. Restart your Firefox browser and execute Citrix .ica files on web pages by clicking them. Then open them with the application /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfica.

Citrix in Ubuntu

If you right click on ica-files within Gnome you can open them with /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfica.

4. Now, if you would like to mount your local disk in the Citrix machine… Edit the All_regions.ini-file:

gedit ~/.ICAClient/All_Regions.ini

5. Change these lines related to disk U (for Ubuntu!) in the following way:


6. Save the file and next time you start a Citrix session your home directory (/home/you) should be visible in the “virtual” file system.

    Haha. Den var god. Sjekk hva som skjedde med epple-menyen din. (Det tok meg 12 minutter!)

    after installation I’ll open ICA with /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfica and there is error:

    Error: 12 (E_MISSING_INI_ENTRY)
    Please refer to the documentation.
    Error in configuration file.
    Section “ApplicationServers” must contain an entry “”.

    Thank you!

    I’m not really sure what to do about this, since I haven’t experienced this error. Might it be that you accidentally have edited something in All_Regions.ini which should not be edited?
