HOW TO: Printing with Citrix Client

This document (3716199) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


This applies to anyone using the Citrix Client on Linux and you want to print a document in a Citrixapp to a local network or local attached printer.


Can't print to a local printer through Citrixapps


Open the file /home/{some_user_id}/.ICAClient/wfclient.ini and add the following lines to it.

Below this section --> [WFClient]

ClientPrinterList=SomePrinterName (i.e. OfficeJet, DeskJet 882C)
DefaultPrinter=SomePrinterName (i.e. OfficeJet)

ClientPrinterList: This can be several printers spaced by a comma, and they have to be the exact name you see after issuing the command lpstat -a from the command line. If i were to issue lpstat -a and get the output "OfficeJet accepting requests since Jan 01 00:00" then the printer name i would use is OfficeJet.

DefaultPrinter: This can be a printer name that is included in the ClientPrinterList
