Post Installing the Citrix client on Mepis 11.0
[revised 3/18/2012] This worked for me and it might help someone else (I think I actually got the directions somewhere on this forum but now I can't find where):

Find and download the 64bit .Deb file (it's on the citrix website under Linux) and type in the following in the terminal:

su root

Enter your password then type:

dpkg -i icaclient_12.0.0_amd64.deb

When it asks for confirmation type in the word "Yes".

If there are no errors you are done. If there are errors proceed to the next step.

Go to Synaptic and there should be a warning about "broken packages". Select "fix broken packages" and it should install or offer to install "nspluginwrapper". Allow it to install nspluginwrapper.

Go to the menu and start the Citrix client. You have to wait until your cursor stops spinning or whatever it does to show it is "working".

Open your browser and enter the desired Citrix destination in the browser.

This should take you to the logon page and all should be good to go.

You didn't need to use the command line or Synaptic.

Just clicking on the icaclient_12.0.0_amd64.deb file would have installed the package using gdebi-kde.

Gdebi will install the missing dependencies (like the nspluginwrapper package you mentioned) before installing the icaclient package.

Thanks for that information. I hope this helps someone else.

Acutally I just re-installed Mepis 11.0 and "just clicking" on the client did not work for me. I did have to use my instructions as posted above.
