1. Download the first package on this site http://www.citrix.com/English/ss/downloads/details.asp?downloadId=2316611&productId=1689163#top

2. Install dependencies for Citrix Receiver, as far as I can tell these are at least:
glib2.tcz
gtk2.tcz
libxp.tcz
openmotif-lib.tcz
pango.tcz
cairo.tcz
udev-lib.tcz
krb5.tcz
libxcb.tcz
libvorbis.tcz
libogg.tcz
speex.tcz
pixman.tcz
fontconfig.tcz
expat2.tcz
libasound.tcz
libffi.tcz
gdk-pixbuf2.tcz
Xorg-7.6-lib.tcz
atk.tcz

3. Add sys group for Receiver: sudo addgroud -S sys

4. Unpack the downloaded file with tar xzf file.tar.gz and run sudo ./setupwfc, answer with yes everywhere

5. Run the Receiver manager like /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfcmgr

6. Put the following to your backup:
opt/Citrix/ICAClient
etc/init.d/ctxusbd
usr/local/firefox-official/plugins/npica.so
usr/local/lib/netscape/npica.so
usr/local/share/mime/applications/x-ica.xml

That should be roughly it....

FWIW I posted an extension called install-citrix-receiver, try it out ;-)

Hi Gutmensch,

thank you for a nice writeup. I would like to add one more file to the list of "keepers" in "/opt/.filetool.lst":

etc/udev/rules.d/85-ica-usb.rules

By the way, did you get the USB redirection to work? I am having problems with my installation and I have not been able to resolve them.

unfortunately I don't have any server to connect to, so I couldn't test at all ;-) but if a udev rule file is also included in the client, one should run at least
Code: [Select]
$ sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
one time after the .rules file is available, e.g. in bootlocal.sh - this is maybe necessary to activate usb redirection, but this also depends on the content of the .rules file (sometimes there are commands in it, which are not directly available in Tiny Core).

Hi,

the citrix receiver installer package is broken.

Version 12 is old and the script didn't work with 12.1

Could you please help me to update the script?

Downloads are here:
w*w.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-receiver/linux/receiver-for-linux-121.html

But I can't download the file with wget but only via browser
but even after that the script is not working.

Any ideas?

greetings
Carsten

The original installer didn't work. On ubuntu everything works with tiny core it doesn't

First you get this error:
Citrix Receiver Do you want to continue without the character conversion?
Your computer cannont convert characters from "ISO-8859-1" to "UTF-16".
after clicking "OK"

Citrix Receiver
Verify the configuration file
/home/tc/.ICAClient/iq6wzl
The section "ApplicationServers" is missing in the configuration

I ran into this issue a couple months ago. As far as I know the script is working just fine (and many thanks for putting it out there). 

I've used the 12.1 version with Firefox on a few thin clients at work.

Download and load (or install) "getlocale". Follow the directions in the info file (I forget what the command was off the top of my head) to get to a scrollable locale selection list.  Select the UTF8 version of your locale (mine was en_US.UTF8) from the list and hit enter. Then it'll create a "mylocale.tcz" extension for you. I believe it adds the that new extension to your onboot.lst file, but double check.

After you've confirmed it will load on boot, add the "LANG=en_US" (or whatever you set the locale extension to) to your list of boot options. Reboot and try again.

Side note: The FAQ page only lists LANG=en as the boot option. That might be for the sake of example or it could be what you're supposed to use, so I don't know for sure if you need to specify the full language (ex: en_US). See how it goes!

Found some of the problems.

tce-load -wi glib2.tcz glibc_gconv.tcz gtk2.tcz libxp.tcz openmotif-lib.tcz pango.tcz cairo.tcz udev-lib.tcz krb5.tcz libxcb.tcz libvorbis.tcz libogg.tcz speex.tcz pixman.tcz fontconfig.tcz expat2.tcz libasound.tcz libffi.tcz gdk-pixbuf2.tcz Xorg-7.6-lib.tcz atk.tcz alsa.tcz

Locale problem disapperas if I install: glibc_gconv.tcz
Found that hint here: newbielink:http://jackiechen.org/2012/03/07/diy-citrix-receiver-thin-client/ [nonactive]

alsa.tcz seems to be nessecary, too.

My goal is netboot of TC with kioskmode: Firefox opens on correct url, all certficates are in, it's not nessecary to skip client detection and Citrix works without pop-up errors

Hi,

Sorry to reopen an oldish thread but it's probably the most relevant place for it.

Going through this install, I've hit an error;

I run;
/opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfcmgr

Code: [Select]
error while loading shared libraries: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
If I open Apps and search libXp.so.6 (under provides) nothing is displayed. I understand I need libxp.tcz but this doesn't show up either.

Would love help solving this one. Thanks!

Are you running 4.x or 5.x?  Just checked and I didn't see a libxp.tcz in the 5.x repo yet (unless I missed it).

I ran receiver 12.1 just fine the other day on 5.x with 4.x dependencies, though I use it through the web browser instead of the standalone GUI.

If you could confirm exactly what works in tc-5.x (libxp +?), I can copy the extensions over.

I'm using the current release (CorePlus) so 5.x.

So I can add the 4.x repositories to 5.x to resolve this dependency?

Hi Juanito,

Yes, only libxp has to be copied over. Every other dependency is already available.


Synergy:

You can download libxp.tcz from the 4.x repo (http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/4.x/x86/tcz/libxp.tcz) and it's md5 (http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/4.x/x86/tcz/libxp.tcz.md5.txt) into your tce/optional folder if you get to this before Juanito does.


Since Juanito copied those files, you can install libxp as you would any extension (tce-load).

Also, update your .dep file for receiver to point to Xorg-7.7-lib instead of Xorg-7.6-lib.

libxp copied over
