Citrix Workspace on Pi 3

Sun Jul 07, 2019 3:06 pm

I've recently tried to run Citrix Workspace on the Pi with poor results.

1) The chromium app: works on Pi 2 and Pi 3, but it is too slow. Impossible to use on Pi 2, but still too slow on a Pi 3 b+. Connection always happens correctly.

2) Installed Citrix Receiver (wfica) on Pi 2 and 3 in Raspbian 9. It either fails to connect or when it connects it looks like it has massive rendering issues. It seems to work for a few seconds then it kind of stop completely.
Other times it just returns "Unknown error" cannot connect.

I feel the native app would perform much better, but it is riddled with issues.

Is anybody able to run the Workspace app in Raspbian?

Cheers

[SOLVED] Re: Citrix Workspace on Pi 3

I managed to connect with both a PI2 and PI3 with super good performance.

The error was yet again a certificate issue. The problem is that some errors area clearly linked to certificates, others (like unknown error) are more difficult to relate to it.

In the end I have added all certificates from /etc/ssl/certs AND the certificate of the website I use.

It is really odd that a system designed to ensure security (certificates) becomes so awkward to use that the only solution is basically to trust everything.

Are you talking about Citrix Workspace on Buster or previous versions of Raspbian?
(I tried to install it on Buster and ended up with some issues regarding libraries - I think libxerces being newer and that broke it)

With the previous version of Raspbian it worked fine for more than a year. I upgraded to Buster and have similar problems now. Can't get it to work and will go back tot the previous version Raspbian.
