Citrix WorkSpace App

Has anyone gotten Citrix Receiver or Workspace running? I started with the tar ball but this was terrible due to the dependencies. I managed to get it going but I don’t know if anyone has better directions. Here is what I did to get it going:

RPM Packages > RedHat Full Package (Self-Service Support) > Citrix Workspace app for Linux (x86_64)
USB Support Package > USB Support Package (x86_64)

rpm2archive ICAClient-rhel-
rpm2archive ctxusb-2.7.19-1.x86_64.rpm

sudo tar xvf ICAClient-rhel- -C /
sudo tar xvf ctxusb-2.7.19-1.x86_64.rpm.tgz -C /
sudo /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/util/

If you get odd SSL errors, check the owner and group on /opt/Citrix (and sub folders). You might need to save the SSL/TLS of the gateway/StoreFront .pem files to:
sudo /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/util/

Launch Apps from the Browser.

Nice guide but can be improved knowing that you can install RPM package on Clear Linux and you can link certs.
Here is what I did:

  • search for bundles with “rpm”
    swupd search rpm
  • add bundle with “rpm”, in my case “dnf” but you can use any other bundle with “rpm”
    sudo swupd bundle-add dnf
  • install RPM without dependencies, it looks like Clear Linux Desktop might have all dependencies needed
    sudo rpm -i --nodeps ICAClient-rhel-
  • create links to certs
    sudo ln -sf /etc/ssl/certs/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/
  • rehash certs
    sudo /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/util/ctx_rehash
    BTW, kudos for this line, I wasn’t able to find c_rehash in Clear Linux, this is nice substitude
    When new version of Citrix Workspace App come out you should be able to update it with:
    sudo rpm -U --nodeps ICAClient-rhel-new_version.x86_64.rpm



Fantastic! I did not know about dnf being on Clear. That’s much easier :slight_smile:


Great Job ! Thanks !
It runs perfect for my Home Office due to COVID-19 :slight_smile:
Just having problems to get out from the Full Screen mode…
I need to use : CTRL+F2 then CTRL+ALT+D then ALT+TAB to acces to other applications and to LogOut correctly,
( Tested with Google Chrome installed on Clear Linux OS )


Thanks for the guide.
I had to remove citrix workspace as I’m no longer using it. I just have a question regarding the rehash part. Do have to run rehash someway to complete remove Citrix Workspace?
