Just so I remember this next time I do an install. The package to install under modern Ubuntu is the Web Receiver, not the Full Package. Sadly, both show up as icaclient under dpkg, hence the confusion.
And, another note.
sudo ln -s /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts
Life got very busy, and I have not had a chance to write in a while. And, the ‘hard drive’ in my R810 died, so I am in the process of recovering from backup. Joy
So, when we were last here, I was talking about how I had been happily using my PixelBook for a year, and everything was just fine. Then, life happened, and things changed, and I found myself working out of the house for a while.
Why should this be a problem? Well, the program I use to remote into the office has a desktop client as well as a web-based one. Under Chrome OS, all I could figure out how to use was the HTML5 web based one.
For the last 12+ months, Chrome OS has been my daily driver. And for the most part, it has treated me okay for all that time. Recently, some issues have cropped up.
I have successfully used my PixelBook in my day to day life doing things. Telecommuting to work a few days a week. Taking online training for work. Doing basic photo editing. Talking with the family whilst traveling. Helping launch a great father/child program.
As 2018 draws to a close, it is the way of things to look at the year past, and then look ahead. A look behind… My main tech experience this year has been using the PixelBook as my main computing device. This for the most part has worked out well. Everything I needed to do I figured out a way to do it under ChromeOS, and most of the time it was as easy to do as under Linux.
