Citrix Receiver Client ICAClient install for Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon

Postby Tiredteck » Fri Nov 18, 2016 1:25 pm

Citrix Receiver Client ICAClient install for Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon.

First of all, thank you to those others who have found that the
location of the certificates is the basic problem.

This information led me to the solution for my install.

I hope this helps someone correct their error 61 certificate issue.

It appears that different versions of the OS and Citrix require
different locations for the relevant certificates and those certificate
requirements change with different version of the Citrix ICAClient.

If you upgrade to a newer version of Citrix you may break your working install of Citrix.
This was not tested on a Ubuntu install or variation of Ubuntu other than Mint.
The ICAClient did launch, connected and allowed login on Firefox, Chrome and Opera.

This procedure is for the versions of the software specified here.

Certificate Error Correction

The proper certificates were required to be in the correct directory structure location.
These certificates were copied from their install location to the correct location required by the Citrix Client.

sudo cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/*.* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts

Hi everyone

I didn't experience the problem mentioned here, but I recently installed Linux Mint 18 (Cinnamon) and
the latest citrix receiver 13.5 with Firefox 52.0.1.
I can connect to my work environment fine but couldn't start any application.
All I got was "SSL Error 4" (and the usual: contact your citrix administrator or helpdesk).
Forgot to mention that the same is true for LM 18.1 (Cinnamon).

I tested the same icaclient version on LM 17(v2) Cinnamon and got an interesting result:
The application started fine but I could not enter anything via the keyboard !

To make a long story short:
Don't use the latest icaclient 13.5.0.x on Linux Mint CInnamon !
Keep the 13.4.0.x running and save this version for later use, e.g. upgrade or a new installation.

It took my a long time to figure this out.
I don't know whether other DE are affected, though.

I think it impacts all distros. I've seen other posts where people are going back to 13.4.

Hi Everyone,

I came across the same problem - but was lucky enough to find a solution!

I found this webpage : https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1975705

All I needed to do was tell Citrix where to find the Mozilla signed certificates.
To do this, I used this Linux command - run as root :

sudo ln -s /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts

And that was it! :)

Hope this is useful.

Cheers
