Install Citrix Receiver in Fedora 16 (x64)

Download the Citrix Receiver client from Citrix homepage. You should be redirected there automatically when trying to access Citrix applications portal.

This was the URL in my case: http://download.citrix.com.edgesuite.net/akdlm/7044/ICAClient_12.1.0-0.x86_64.rpm?__gda__=1338288995_9d0910b8194edff271b41bda11c7737b&__dlmgda__=1338375095_b3e64146e93e0a1743df89c33919b677&fileExt=.rpm

This is another URL to get the Citrix Receiver: http://www.citrix.com/English/SS/downloads/details.asp?downloadId=2316611&productId=1689163

After the installation (download and install the rpm-package) check where your Netscape plugin folder is:

$ sudo find / -name plugins | grep -i "netscape\|firefox\|mozilla"
$ cd /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins

Then check where your so module is:

$ sudo find / -iname *npica* -type f
$ sudo ln -s /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/npica.so npica.so

Install a missing dependency (because of 64-bits Fedora):

$ sudo yum install libasound.so.2

The first time you click on an application, your browser is likely going to popup a dialog box giving you the choice to open the file or save the file. Choose the option to open the file. Where it asks for the application to use on this type of file, type in the path to the wfica application:


In my case I got error 61 because I hadn’t the certificate for “Entrust.net Secure Server Certification Auth…”. To get in I used a Win7 computer, Internet Explorer 9, menu “Tools / Internet Options / Innehåll” / Certificates-button / “Betrodda rotcertifikatutfärdare”, mark the cert you want to export, click “Export”-button, save as “DER-encoded binary x509 file (.cer)”. I then copied this file into the folder: /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts

Or you can use “OpenSSL” to convert a PEM certificate exported from Firefox in Linux:

$ sudo openssl x509 -in /home/user/Downloads/exported_cert -inform PEM \
-out /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/my_citrix.crt -outform DER
