Citrix ICA receiver Linux – Keyboard layout

Sometimes the Citrix ICA (I’m using V13 on Fedora 20) does not recognize the correct keyboard mapping and just believes you are using an EN-Layout.

In my case I use and want the DE-Layout (german) – otherwise the session gets a pain in the neck 🙁

How to define the keyboard-layout manually:

  • change in your home-directory – there you should find the .ICAClient-directory.
  • There edit the file wfclient.ini (e.g. with nano)
  • Set the KeyboardLayout = XXX manually (in my case GERMAN).
