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: 

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

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 => (0xb7fa9000) => not found => /usr/lib/ (0xb7f92000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7f81000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7f79000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7f61000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7f4b000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7f47000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7f2f000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7ddf000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7d8e000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7ca7000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7c99000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7c96000)
/lib/ (0xb7faa000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7c93000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7c7b000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7c76000)

As you can see, 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/ /usr/lib/

8. Do an other ldd dependency check:
ldd /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr => (0xb7f80000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7d31000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7d29000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7d19000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7d10000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7cf8000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7ce2000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7cde000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7cc6000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7b77000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7b25000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7a3e000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7a30000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7a2d000)
/lib/ (0xb7f81000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7a2b000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7a12000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7a0d000)

The Citrix Receiver client should not able to run. On my ubuntu 8.04, the Citrix receiver client is found under: Ubuntu / Internet / Citrix receiver client.
