After upgrade from F28 to F29 I can start VDI however the client is irresponsive and unusable. I am running ICAClient-

In the first place, I get this error:

/opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfica: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

SOLVED: I was pointed to the Citrix Workspace which is an add on to chromium

  • symlinking to 11 did not work.
  • Citrix Workspace on Vivaldi browser did not work (gave a blank screen)
  • Installed Chromium, installed Citrix Workspace, could login and works :-)
