Citrix on Ubuntu

Running Citrix from Ubuntu is getting progressively more difficult. This post is an attempt to document a few of the changes that we’ve had to make to keep it usable.

In my home folder, there’s a hidden folder named .ICAClient

To get rid of the extreme lagginess when Outlook or Lync show notifications we’ve edited appsrv.ini to include entries for ForceLVBMode and DeferredUpdateMode as follows:

;
;*****************************************************************
[WFClient]
Version = 2
ForceLVBMode = 1
DeferredUpdateMode = 1

[ApplicationServers]

and

To get rid of black boxes around the mouse pointer, I added an entry for DisableXRender in my wfclient.ini file. Like this:
