I am using VMware Horizon Client Version 2309.1 Build 8.11.1 (22775487)version and I get the invalid locale error.

Here is what the log says.

2023-12-05 11:49:42.314+00:00: vmware-view 23656| OnError:69: Handling error 'invalid locale' (domain=2359(CDK_BROKER_ERROR), code=14) from task CdkSetLocaleTask. 2023-12-05 11:49:42.314+00:00: vmware-view 23656| cdk_application_on_server_fatal_error: received fatal error 'invalid locale', disconnect server and show error message.

Working well now. I am not sure what was the Vulkan thing. Worked after upgrading + reboot.

Pushed vmware-horizon-client 2309-2, that should fix the chromium / libstdc++ issue. No idea on the vulkan topic...

I have arch with KDE 4 using Wayland

Before the upgrade I could access the login screen (which comes up in a chromium window), and then the remote application would launch

After upgrade to 2309-1 vmware-client would offer the server but the login screen would not display. Instead, I got the error message that /usr/lib/vmware/ did not contain glibc3.4.32. I renamed /usr/lib/vmware/libstdc++ and did a softlink to the /usr/lib/ library. Now the login screen opens in Chromium. I am able to log in and get the menu of the remote applications.

however, when I try to access any application, the screen momentarily freezes and then I get this error:

Warning: vkCreateInstance: Found no drivers!

Warning: vkCreateInstance failed with VK_ERROR_INCOMPATIBLE_DRIVER

Can you give details on your setup? How can I reproduce?

And does it work to just remove the packaged library, so libstdc++ from gcc-libs can be used?

After upgrading to 2309-1 when being redirected to login via chromium I get that the packaged libstdc++ (usr/lib/vmware/gcc/ does not contain GLIBCXX_3.4.32 which is required by Chromium.

The latest version of libstdc included is 3.4.30

I am using Chromium 119.0.6045.59

I have solved the problem by doing a soft link for libstdc using the libstdc son /usr/lib

The problem message:

Is solved installing manually the AUR package vmware-keymaps ( After installing this package, the next step is to install using the regular procedure "vmware-horizon-client"

Since two weeks, the Horizon client is crashing a couple of times a day at the same time with chrome and chromium, is anyone experiencing similar behaviour?

Using the latest Manjaro, Gnome, Wayland and the latest LTS Kernel (6.1.49-1).

@Pen_Pen At my organization the same thing happened and it was related to MS implementing a different dual factor authenticator (where they post a number you enter in your Authenticator app on the phone) which broke the VMWare client as it cannot support it

In our case, my organization has a web portal from which I can launch.. it has been the only workaround so far
