Was just wondering if anyone out there can give some help regarding logging into my work account.
The intranet doesn't state that a MS pc is required, however when launching applications it fails. It also says that the Citrix ICAClient is required, but I think this is nonsense as it always uses Java. Unfortunately, this is the only time that the Java applet doesn't work
The helpdesk told me to install the ICAClient and choose the option 'Local Client'
Everything has been installed correctly and working such as Java and ICAClient. I have done all the symbolic links, added the link for the Firefox plugin etc. Below is a section from 'about
lugins' from Firefox.
Citrix Presentation Server Client for Linux
File name: nswrapper_32_32.npica.so
ICA Plugin (Linux) Version 10.6.115659 (/usr/lib/ICAClient/wfica)
MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled
application/x-ica Handles ICA connections ica Yes
I have raised calls to the Helpdesk (they're a bit crap, but they're all we've got !) and they have absolutely no idea what to do and it is plainly obvious that in developing this they had no thought for anyone who might be using Linux.
Even by choosing 'Local Client' I believe it is still trying to use Java.
I have attached the HTML source for the page when logged in. If you scroll to the bottom, the code for the buttons are such as Internet Explorer etc is listed.
Can someone who knows a bit about this stuff have a look and tell me what is going wrong here when I click on the buttons to launch the applications.
Usually when the application is launched, a Java window appears which says 'Loading Applet' then 'Applet started' then 'Error: Applet failed to initialized'.
Don't expect a solution, but if anyone can see a blindingly obvious problem with the HTML source, then please let me know and I can go back to the helpdesk armed with a bit more ammunition.
