Install Citrix Receiver in Fedora 17

Recently, I switched to Fedora 17 as my main workstation.  I routinely use Citrix applications, and needed to install Citrix Receiver.  I found there were some problems, mainly with dependancies, when trying to install it.

Heres what you need to do to get it installed.

First, you will need to add the RPMFusion Free and Non-Free repos in order to pickup the dependancies. Go Here to get the .repos for your version:

Then, we need to install a few dependancies. Citrix Receiver is a 32 bit application, so you will need to install .i686 libraries if you are running it on a 64 bit OS.  Here's the command we will need to use:

For 64 bit systems: 

yum install libXaw.i686 libXp.i686 openmotif.i686

For 32 bit systems:

yum install libXaw libXp openmotif


After you have those installed, goto and download the latest version of the Citrix Receiver application.  Once you have it downloaded, install it using yum or rpm commands. This should be all you need in order to get it up and running!


  • Actually the 64 bit instruction will work on 32 bit systems perfectly fine. On 64 bit systems you need to specify, whereas on 32 bit its not needed.

    This explanation is really helpful already, thanks. However, I'm getting the following error when trying to install the Citrix receiver:
    /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/util/ line 676: nspluginwrapper: command not found
    warning: %post(ICAClient-12.1.0-0.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 2
    Could someone help?

    Update: It was a matter of downloading the nspluginwrapper.i686 package. Now it works, except of some Fontset conversion errors.
    Thanks again for this post, it solved the dependency problems in a matter of seconds 😉
