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 , you can login with your WUR account.

Installation of clients

Debian Linux

(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]


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

Medewerker button

Start Citrix.

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 :

Start -> Computer -> Network Drive (W:) -> APPS -> MyData

If you scroll down in that folder, the "Medewerker button HRM" will show up.

Here is a screenshot of how it looks :

and then click subsequently on :

Computer -> Network Drive (W:) -> APPS -> MyData
