Citrix on Fedora32

In case you need to get Citrix working under Fedora these are the steps that worked for me:

First of all download the client from and make sure you download the WebReceiverOnly package as the Selfservice-Package needs webkitgtk to work which is not provided by the Fedora32 repository.

Install client and crypto-libs

sudo dnf install ICAClientWeb-rhel-
sudo dnf install compat-openssl10.x86_64

Update libcrypto reference in desktop file

sudo sed -i '/Exec=/d' /usr/share/applications/wfica.desktop
echo 'Exec=env LD_PRELOAD="/lib64/" /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfica -icaroot /opt/Citrix/ICAClient %f' |
sudo tee --append /usr/share/applications/wfica.desktop
cat /usr/share/applications/wfica.desktop

Extract system ca-certificates and install in the Citrix cacerts directory

sudo ln -s /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/pem/tls-ca-bundle.pem /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/
cd /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/
sudo awk 'BEGIN {c=0;} /BEGIN CERT/{c++} { print > "cert." c ".pem"}' < tls-ca-bundle.pem

Citrix Receiver expects so you need to link it to 12.6:

ln -sf /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/

Then start your Citrix application via the downloaded ica-file

env LD_PRELOAD="/lib64/" /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfica -icaroot /opt/Citrix/ICAClient [file.ica]
