Hi David,

The Citrix website says their client requires "OpenMotif 2.2.x".  I
searched for "motif" using Synaptic and it came in under "libmotif3". 
The properties say it is in Libraries...(Multiverse).

[I actually wrote this stuff below first...

I've gotten the client to work on several different linux
distributions, but I have never had  a use for running it from the
command line.  If  it's any use to you browser-based, this worked for

*Download the latest linux client
*Read the readme to find the setup script that you need to execute.  I
think I accepted all the defaults.  Under Ubuntu, I installed it under
my home directory so I didn't have to worry about permissions.
*With Firefox or Mozilla pointed at the server, when it the program
asks how to do handle the citrix software, point it to the file
..install_path/ICAClient/wfica  (not wfmgr).]
