I am still quite new to openSUSE, been using about a week now, and am really loving it. I had to install Citrix Receiver 13 for work, and found all the information I needed but it was dispersed throughout many areas. The installation on 64bit systems can be a bit tricky since Citrix is a 32bit based product, with minimal adaptation for 64bit. I would like to make the process easier for anyone else having issues with version 13 on openSUSE 13.1. Thought I would just create a concise consolidated howto that provided all the information in one place. Hopefully someone can find this helpful!
Install required 32-bit libraries via YaST
1.] In YaST make sure to install ALL of the following libraries. I used YaST for this to visually inspect everything before installing and, YaST will find all additional dependencies required.
[li] List of 32-bit libraries to be installed is: [/li][/ul]
Via Terminal, install the RPM package
2] In Terminal: Install RPM via Zypper as Root:
zypper install ICAClient-126.96.36.1996735-0.x86_64.rpm
[i]Ignore the long list of warnings about missing dependencies: lib32asound2 and nspluginwrapper. The installation will work without these libraries, as they are brought in later.
[li] Select Option # 3 [/li][/ul]
3.] Check there are no missing dependencies:
You should now see a long list of dependencies and their locations listed. This validates all dependecies are installed correctly.[i] If you see [b][u]not found[/u][/b] in the output:
[li]Uninstall the Citrix ICA Client: zypper remove icaclient [/li][li]Install the missing packages that were listed. [/li][li]Reinstall the Citrix ICA Client: zypper install ICAClient-188.8.131.526735-0.x86_64.rpm [/li][/LIST]
4.] If using KDE, edit the file association application/x-ica.
[li] Click Kicker start menu, search term “Association” and open File Associations [/li][li] In File associations search “x-ica” and click on this file type in left pane. [/li][li]Add a new application: /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfica.sh [/li][/ul]
5.] Check correct file association in FireFox (not needed for chrome)
[li] If you’ve had firefox open, close and restart it. [/li][li] Go to ‘Menu>Preferences>Applications’ [/li][li] Make sure Citrix ICA settings file is set to “Use Citrix Receiver for Linux (in Firefox)” [/li][/ul]
This is all it took for me to get Citrix Client v13 up and running without a hitch. Some of the items I saw from other pages/post/etc appeared more apt to issues if the correct order was not followed during installation. I had no issues with making sure all basic dependencies were met prior to installing the RPM. I had same issues others had when I attempted installing on my workstation with Arch, so I learned a little from that experience as well.
CA-Certificates errors:[INDENT=4] [* Thanks to openSUSE user TimothyVD]
‘/usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla’ is not available anymore. So a symbolic link to the ssl certificates directory is a workaround.
ln -s /etc/ssl/certs/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/
