My company updated the Citrix servers, and suddenly I ran into keyboard problems. This applies to the latest version of the Linux Citrix Client (12.1).
Under Tools->Settings->Preferences there are keyboard settings. I used to leave those at Default but now I need to set them.
The tricky part is not the settings themselves – the tricky part is knowing IF and WHEN the settings have applied. When playing with those settings I suggest the following procedure:
- Start the Citrix Client (wfcmgr)
- Make your settings
- Restart your client
- Test your settings (starting applications)
- Finally, make sure all connections are dead (Tools->Connection Center)
- Stop the Citrix Client
If paranoid, also use ps and kill to make sure no citrix client runs. I wasted much time thinking I was using some configurations when in fact I was not.
For the keyboard settings themselves, I found I needed all of them (leaving none at default):
- Keyboard Layout=Swedish
- Keyboard Type (Client)=LINUX
- Keyboard Type (Server)=IBM PC/XT or compatible
As I dont really know the version or the settings of our Citrix Server environment, this is more some trial-and-error advice rather than a solution to your problem.
