First post here. New mate install, really liking it. I need the VMware horizon view client for work, and noticed it is no longer in the repos, except for 12.04, and is significantly out of date. I tried to get it from the VMware site, but it required a login which I did not want to do. I knew it could be installed from AUR, so went there, grabbed the files (which are actually hosted on gentoo), installed, and made a launcher in the mint menu. Works great.
- get the source here
- move to /opt
- make executable
sudo chmod +x VMware-Horizon-Client-3.5.0-2999900.x64.bundle
sudo ./ VMware-Horizon-Client-3.5.0-2999900.x64.bundle
- at this point the graphical installer starts and you can pick which components you want. I just use the basic client and printing.
- make an entry in mint menu, either by hand or right-click on the menu, and enter the path /usr/bin/vmware-view
Hope it helps someone.
