I would like to get help to set up my desktop to use dual display with Citrix receiver. I have followed different posts/suggestions, but nothing worked and this need is the only one that keep me tied to my Windows installation; in it, the same Citrix works -- extending the display to the second monitor perfectly.

My desktop has one onboard Intel HD Graphic 530 (HDMI) and one NVIDIA GeForce GT 730. Currently I am using both monitors connected to the NVIDIA card, because my Linux recognizes the Intel one when booting, but it freezes the display before the login window (second monitor only).

The command xprop -root | grep _NET_WM_FULLSCREEN_MONITORS works, which according to the post (https://docs.citrix.com/ru-ru/receiver/linux/13-1/linux-troubleshooting-wrapper/linux-troubleshooting-known-issues-display.html), it means the configuration should work, but when running the command /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/wfica -span h, it says no ICA or *serv file found.

Today I am using Linux Mint 18, but I don't care about moving to another distribution where this configuration could work properly.

  • I'm afraid I don't get the whole picture. Can you work with dual monitor at all? If yes, Citrix should deal with it as any other application does. I use Citrix rootless on both monitors without any problem. If you can't use your second monitor at all, the question is not Citrix related, so ask a question about the freeze problem. And that error message sounds like misconfigured Citrix client, completely unrelated to the monitor problem. – Philippos Nov 2 '17 at 8:22
  • Hi Jeff, thank you for your answer. Yes, both monitors work fine on Linux and Windows. I have both connected to NVIDIA card, but on Linux only Citirx does not span to the second monitor. I have mentioned about the second (Intel) video card in case someone suggest to have the monitors in different cards, and, as you told, based on some posts that I went through, because Citirx spans to the second monitor on Windows boot, I believe that there is no restrictions on Citirx server, so it should work on Linux, what make me frustrated. – Emerson Soares Nov 2 '17 at 11:15
  • Jeff? Whatever. Does Citrix start without the -span option. I would doubt that considering the error message, but why not try? – Philippos Nov 2 '17 at 12:32
