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

Update: I was able to get by it by resetting my LANG to en_US.UTF-8:

# localectl set-locale LANG=en_US.UTF-8
# locale -a 


Original Message:

Similar to @sand7000 I am also getting an "Invalid Locale" error when trying to add a server. Same locale settings:


I only found another dead-end Reddit thread, has anyone else run into this?

Update. Manual build and install worked:

sudo rm /usr/share/doc/vmware-horizon-client/patches/
sudo pacman -U vmware-horizon-

Problem I mentioned happened only while using yay to automatically update vmware-horizon-client.

What does this give? pacman -Qo /usr/share/doc/vmware-horizon-client/patches/

Just remove the files if no package is returned...

Did you install with the installer (and not pacman) before?

I found a solution, I configured VMware Blast and disabled H.264 decoding then the problem was solved :)
