But before we can start it we have to do some changes, by default the Icaclient has it’s own cert-store. And it only ships with 4 – 5 certs so most likely, when you setup a connection to en SSL encrypted site you will get an error message.
So therefore we need to copy CA-certs from Firefox CA-store into the ICAclients store.
From terminal run the command,
sudo cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/

After you have run the command you can now start the client.
