Kim - 

Thanks for the advice. I can now login to Nfuse and access published applications from Firefox. 

I am still, however, unable to launch the ICAClient from either command line or the Gnome menu.

I have checked and found is installed in /usr/X11R6/lib

Still get the same error not available. I'm a bit confused as regards what to try next...

Many thanks.
