Postby Boxx » Thu Nov 09, 2017 6:13 am

Possible conflict between Citrix reciever and Software Manager ?

Mint: 18.2, Mate, updated 9. nov. 2017.
Citrix Reciever: 13.7 (web only).

Error:
If I have a Citrix session rumming and starts Software manager, then it does not start and repports this:

When terminating Citrix session, Software Manager works again.


Cheers

Is it too easy to say 'Well, don't do that then'? :wink:

Does this also happen with Citrix running minimized?

Agree ... :lol:

However - no, it's only occouring when Citrx reciever full screen. Switching to windowed mode, makes it possible to start Software manager.
I have a 3 monitor setup, where Citrix runs full screen on one of them - which is why I discovered this issue.

I only reported this, so that the Mint guys could fix the Software Manager.

I don't think there's anything to fix. I believe Citrix is intended to act like this.

A serious and long standing bug in Xorg is that it allows apps to exclusively grab keybiard etc input. This mey be an example of this.
