The Citrix client allows you to use Windows tools (Medewerker button, MS Office) on Linux and OSX (even from home!).
The WUR Citrix site lives at https://citrix.fb.wur.nl/ , you can login with your WUR account.
Installation of clients
(NOT icaclient 12.1 on 64 bit Wheezy - see below this section)
Select the Debian package (.deb extension) from the Citrix site. Download it and, for example
sudo dpkg -i icaclient_12.0.0_i386.deb
If install fails because of unmet dependencies do:
sudo apt-get -f install
Now the certificates may not be found, resulting in a 'Addtrust External CA Root' not allowed (61) error. Copy the Mozilla certificates in place with
dpkg -L icaclient | grep keystore/cacerts # check locations sudo cp -vau /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts
Now it should just work (tm).
To modify the desktop that it does not take full screen edit the file /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/config/All_Regions.ini and edit the section to contain
[Client Engine\GUI] DesiredHRES=1024 DesiredVRES=768
Install the Citrix receiver from the Citrix website.
Then start the browser, visit the citrix site mentioned above and ... that is all. It even works from home!
Using Citrix Applications @WUR
In the Library64 folder click on Desktop Library, this will open a Windows 7 desktop.
The Medewerker button shortcut can be found in
'W://APPS/MyData/Medewerker button HRM'
To get there, click subsequently on :

If you scroll down in that folder, the "Medewerker button HRM" will show up.
Here is a screenshot of how it looks :
You could also try to get there from the Citrix Applications tab, by clicking subsequently on :
Office -> Explorer
and then click subsequently on :
Computer -> Network Drive (W:) -> APPS -> MyData
