How to add Google Chrome support

You can open Citrix receiver apps by clicking a link in your browser. You don't need an extension for that.

Just click on the app shortcut in Google Chrome and download the .ica file. When it is downloaded, click the arrow next to the filename in the bottom bar of Chrome and choose "always open files of this type".

That's it! Next time you click on a Citrix app, it will be started automatically.

In Firefox, go to Tools -> Add-ons -> Plugins, and make sure the "Citrix Receiver for Linux" plugin is set to "Always Activate".

How to solve SSL error 61

This error happens because Citrix receiver doesn't trust enough certificates. You fix this by adding all the certificates Firefox trusts to Citrix. Just open a terminal and execute the following command.

sudo ln -s /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts
