Citrix have ceased to support UNIX and Linux platforms hence it has been neccessary to select a differnt thin client for the new Linux platforms. The Nomachine architecture has been succesfully used in a number of similar siutations and has been selected for the Linux thin client envionment.
As with Citrix Nomachine support a large number of client systems.
The latest generations of the clients and support files can be located at
You need to install the client and all the font packs for the relevant client system
The current ( 22 12 09 ) windows installlation files are also available below. However it is recommended that you go to the nomachine site and acquire the latest versions.
When installing fonts the system will indicate that other font packs are required, dependent on the order of installation. The font packs are insensitive to the order of installation and such warnings can be ignored.
The unchanged defaults are correct for the client installation. . The following sequence shows the screens that will be presented during the installation sequence.
When downloading from the web site you will see the following.
You can decide to save the file and run it at a later date or run it immediately.
You should then be faced with the client installation prompt.
You will then be prompted for the installation location for the software. The default location is suitable. In the case below it has installed in my personal "nc3" area.

You will be prompted if you wish to create the start menu and desk top entries. The recommendation is to answer yes to both.
You will then have the configuration options displayed and be requested to confirm the installation by selecting the "install" option.
On the succesful completion of the installation you will be presented with the final page.
Once the client has been installed you need to install all the available font packs.
The walkthrough will only cover a single font pack. You will need to repeat this procedure for each of the four font packs.
The sequence is similar to that for the client and it is recommended that the default location is used in each case.
Using the default template means you are unable to modify any of the settings. You need to use the "NXClient Connection Wizard" to produce a local file you can edit.
Remote Desktop Size: Either "Available Area" or "Full Screen" are the suggested options, dependent on taste.
Make sure you select the "Show the Advanced Configuration dialog" tick box.
