Update for 13.5 - please test carefully before using in production.
gstreamer0.10 is now an opt-dependency as discussed here.
If you find any glitches please report.

EDIT: if you want blindly updating and complaining about non-functioning afterwards you should stick to official packages!

If anyone wants to use older version (13.4) of icaclient, which does not have "unable to type anything" kind of issue and !!! won't be updated in the future !!!, here is how to install it:

$ sudo pacman -S wget
$ git clone
$ cd icaclient
$ git checkout 103eefa32a36c95acc779ca172b6acb99d909aa2
$ wget -O PKGBUILD
$ makepkg -s

e.g. for 64bit package:
$ sudo pacman -U icaclient-99.9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

And you are done!

@MilanKnizek. Tnx. You made my day!

Somewhat more straighforward instructions for those willing to revert back to 13.4 (use 'git log' to see other history points in AUR git - the hash below denotes the last version before 13.5):

$ git clone
$ cd icaclient
$ git checkout 103eefa32a36c95acc779ca172b6acb99d909aa2

Now manually update the lines starting "source_url32=" and "source_url64=" (in PKGBUILD) so that they include the correct URL for older version:
(keep the remainder of the line untouched) and continue:

$ makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD
$ makepkg -s

And if things go well, you can eventually install the package:

$ sudo pacman -U *pkg.tar.xz

BTW, can someone point me to the bug report re. non-functional keyboard? (@lervag?)

@DwarfNr5: Hi. you seem to be new here. I recommend the Arch Wiki as a start, there you also learn how to deal with PKGBUILDs.
Have a look at git, the VCS underlying the AUR, which allows you to checkout and easily build old versions of packages as well.

13.5 won't work for me either (no reaction to keyboard on Citrix session). Is there a way to install the previous version via the AUR ?

@bennypr0fane: git is a version control system, after cloning you have all versions of the package at your hand. the working tree (the files you see) reflect the most recent committ, but you can also checkout earlier versions. you do that by issuing 'git checkout <hash_of_commit>'.
you can read about git on wikipedia (first introduction) and the archwiki.

@strider2: the downgrading didn't work for me until I also fixed the md5sums in the PKGBUILD file!
You need to copy them from the Citrix download page and replace the ones that are valid for 13.5-2.
I didn't understand what "check out the last commit before 13.5." in your step 2) meant. If the tar that is downloaded is determined by the PKGBUILD (not by the git clone command), then it sorta doesn't make sense. The "checking out the last commit before 13.5." happens only after running makepkg -si, i.e. it would be a part of step 3).

also had to downgrade due to SSL error 47. 13.4 works just fine

bigfreak commented on 2017-03-12 11:04

@strider2 Thanks for the Tip helped to fix the SSL 4 Error... (Downgraded to 13.4)

lervag commented on 2017-03-10 08:07

@strider2 Thanks! I already downgraded, which I can confirm that "solves" the issue, but I think your comment may be useful to others with the same issue!
