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.

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:

DrivePathU=/home/you
DriveEnabledU=true
DriveReadAccessU=true
DriveWriteAccessU=true
