How to run Citrix ICA Client on Linux Mint 14 “Nadia” 64-bit

To execute Citrix ICA Client on Linux Mint 14 “Nadia” 64-bit isn’t something you’ll get working right out of the box.
If you try to run a shortcut from your Citrix page, you’ll be most likely treated to following error:
SSL error. Contact your help desk with the following information: You have not chosen to trust”/C=US/ST=/L=/O=Equifax/OU=Equifax Secure Certificate Authority/CN=”, the issuer of the server’s security certificate ((SSL error 61).

Anyhow, following are step by step instructions on how to get it to work in Google Chrome/Firefox for Linux.

1. Install Firefox in Mint 14 using software manager (unless it is already installed)
or
1. Install Chrome for Linux (Beta) from: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/beta.html

2. Open Firefox of Chrome and login to your Citrix page, then close the browser (whichever you’ve decided to use)

3. Install CitrixICAClient from following url: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CitrixICAClientHowTo?action=AttachFile&do=view&target=icaclient_12.1.0_amd64.deb

4. Next step is to make Mozilla’s certificates accessible to Citrix. Execute following command from terminal:
sudo ln -s /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts

5. Open Firefox of Chrome and login to your Citrix account. Voila! It works :)

Now I can finally use Citrix version of RDP in Linux Mint :)
