I just installed Ununtu 8.04 and would like to run a citrix client 11 so we can run a XenApp published desktop.  The problem is I am a total newbie to anything linux related.

Can someone please provide install instructions as well as some explanation of the the commands?  i found some step by step instruction but none of it actually explains what each command does.  Thanks in advance.

The Linux Client admin guide is pretty detailed, I used it to install on a Red Hat Linux box with no issues, I'd start here:

http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX120175 

It's pretty detailed including all the various command line launch options.

Here's what I did to get it working:

Download the ICA client from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CitrixICAClientHowTo

Open a terminal and untar the downloaded file
tar -zxvf linuxx86-11.0.140395.tar.gz

Run the setup script
sudo ./setupwfc


If it complains about dependencies, install the libmotif package then try installing again:
sudo apt-get install libmotif3

Clicking on the published application within the web browser should automatically start the proper program. If not, point the .ICA file to open with /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfica.

Thanks piggly, that worked. I did have to install the libmotif and a couple of extrat steps... here goes

5. Install openmotif: sudo apt-get install libmotif3

6. Run ldd to check for dependecy issues:ldd /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xb7fa9000)
libXm.so.4 => not found
libXp.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXp.so.6 (0xb7f92000)
libXpm.so.4 => /usr/lib/libXpm.so.4 (0xb7f81000)
libSM.so.6 => /usr/lib/libSM.so.6 (0xb7f79000)
libICE.so.6 => /usr/lib/libICE.so.6 (0xb7f61000)
libXmu.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXmu.so.6 (0xb7f4b000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libdl.so.2 (0xb7f47000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libpthread.so.0 (0xb7f2f000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6 (0xb7ddf000)
libXt.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXt.so.6 (0xb7d8e000)
libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libX11.so.6 (0xb7ca7000)
libXext.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXext.so.6 (0xb7c99000)
libXau.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXau.so.6 (0xb7c96000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7faa000)
libxcb-xlib.so.0 => /usr/lib/libxcb-xlib.so.0 (0xb7c93000)
libxcb.so.1 => /usr/lib/libxcb.so.1 (0xb7c7b000)
libXdmcp.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXdmcp.so.6 (0xb7c76000)

As you can see, libXm.so.4 is missing and the executable wont run.

7. To solve this problem, create a sybolic link between for ldd /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libXm.so.3 /usr/lib/libXm.so.4

8. Do an other ldd dependency check:
ldd /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xb7f80000)
libXm.so.4 => /usr/lib/libXm.so.4 (0xb7d31000)
libXp.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXp.so.6 (0xb7d29000)
libXpm.so.4 => /usr/lib/libXpm.so.4 (0xb7d19000)
libSM.so.6 => /usr/lib/libSM.so.6 (0xb7d10000)
libICE.so.6 => /usr/lib/libICE.so.6 (0xb7cf8000)
libXmu.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXmu.so.6 (0xb7ce2000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libdl.so.2 (0xb7cde000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libpthread.so.0 (0xb7cc6000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6 (0xb7b77000)
libXt.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXt.so.6 (0xb7b25000)
libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libX11.so.6 (0xb7a3e000)
libXext.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXext.so.6 (0xb7a30000)
libXau.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXau.so.6 (0xb7a2d000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7f81000)
libxcb-xlib.so.0 => /usr/lib/libxcb-xlib.so.0 (0xb7a2b000)
libxcb.so.1 => /usr/lib/libxcb.so.1 (0xb7a12000)
libXdmcp.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXdmcp.so.6 (0xb7a0d000)
