Wie installiere ich VMware View Client?


Ich habe versucht, es über das Software-Center zu installieren.installiert, entfernt und neu installiert und es gibt mir immer noch Probleme, es stürzt einfach ab, wenn ich es öffne.Also habe ich synaptic ausprobiert, was bisher gut aussieht.

Wenn ich jedoch this documentation folge, wird mir mitgeteilt, dass der VMware-View-Open-Client alt ist und ich den VMware-View-Client möchte.Ich sehe es jedoch nicht, wenn ich danach suche.Ich sehe den offenen.

Alle meine Google-Suchanfragen haben mir nicht genau das gegeben, wonach ich suche.Ich fühle mich nah dran, wenn mich jemand in die richtige Richtung weisen kann, wäre das großartig.


On ubuntu 14.04:

  1. Open software-sources by typing "software and updates" on the dash and open the application.

  2. On the "Other Software" tab, make sure that "Canonical partners" has a check mark besides it.

  3. Now, add i386 architecture to dpkg by first opening a terminal (press Alt+F2 and typing terminal or pressing together Ctrl+Alt+t) and then typing the following:

    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

    and then enter your administrative password.

  4. Now, update your software package list by typing:

    sudo apt-get update
  5. And then install vmware-view-client from the same terminal by typing:

    sudo apt-get install vmware-view-client

    Or you should be able to install it from the software center by typing "vmware view client" in the search bar:

    ubuntu software center vmware view client

On ubuntu 12.04:

Enable "Canonical partners" as said in the section for ubuntu 14.04, update using sudo apt-get update and then you should be able to install it from the software center or from the terminal (you can skip the sudo dpkg --add-architecuture i386 part).



I have Lubuntu 15.10 and this is how I manage to get VMware horizon view

Download VMware.

Launch Terminal and type:

sudo bash [downloaded binary file]

The package will be extracted and installed then A GUI Installer will launch to finish the installation.

To launch run command



On Linux Mint 18.1 Serena (~Ubuntu 16.04)

  1. Download vmware horizon client 4 for linux
  2. Install: sudo bash DOWNLOADED_FILE
  3. Find libudev and set symlink:

    sudo find /lib/ -type f | grep libudev
    sudo ln -sf /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.1.6.4 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.0
  4. Run programm from start menu or: vmware-view

(Thanks to above posted answers and linuxmintusers.de)


to add on the accepted response - if using terminal, to add canonical partners you need following:

sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"
sudo apt-get update

(as per https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2064014)


I'm a beginner using or configuring linux but this works well for me even customizing an iso

On Lubuntu

sudo apt install g++ libxml2-dev libboost-dev qt5-default qtbase5-dev-tools qtdeclarative5-dev libqt5svg5-dev libqt5websockets5-dev git cmake libportmidi0 libasound2 python

Download VMware-Horizon-Client-*.x86.bundle from vmware page https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/info/slug/desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_horizon_clients/4_0.

Then you can run it from the folder it's downloaded ./VMware-Horizon-Client-*.x86.bundle or sh ./VMware-Horizon-Client-*.x86.bundle

Create vmware.sh

echo "vmware-view -q --nonInteractive --fullscreen --nomenubar --lockServer -s your_view_server_FQDN.local" > /.vmware.sh

Create others.sh

#this line will void checking for the view sever certificate if no needed don't use it.
echo "echo "view.sslVerificationMode = \"3\"" > /etc/vmware/view-mandatory-config

#this other line adds your view server FQDN to local hosts file you can repeat it if necessary
echo " viewservershortname viewserverFQDN.local" >> /etc/hosts"
#this line cleanses the script after it run once, 
echo "" > /.others.sh

Now you can make those scripts run, I preferred to make them run automatically. The way I did it is

crontab -e

there you can write

@reboot /.others.sh

save and quit

Edit the file /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart write this command to autostart the view client automatically

@vmware-view -q --nonInteractive --fullscreen --nomenubar --lockServer -s your_view_server_FQDN.local

Now you can customize your own ubuntu linux vmware view client

P.D. I've used CUBIC to customize the ISO

I've test UCK but didn't work recommend cubic


This is how i installed 64 bit version on 16.04:

1) Download client from from https://www.vmware.com/go/viewclients

2) Uninstall any previous version (if any).


  • a) Open a Terminal window.
  • b) Change directories to the directory that contains the installer file (xxx.bundle).

4) Run the installer with the following command:

sudo sh ./VMware-Horizon-Client-x.x.x-yyyyyyy.arch.bundle

*or in my case:

sudo sh ./VMware-Horizon-Client-4.7.0-7395152.x64.bundle

(To note: the "sh" is there to "force" the bundle to be executable.. depending on the permissions YOU have set forth this will also work:

sudo ./VMware-Horizon-Client-x.x.x-yyyyyyy.arch.bundle

5) Follow the Gui install wizard..
