Description Plero H 2021-02-04 09:41:19 UTC
When you connect via wfica to a desktop, audio does not work.
Error messages in terminal suggest an alsa issue, pulseaudio is the default sound output in alsa and the sound system in general.

Comment 1 Andreas Zuber 2021-02-12 09:30:28 UTC
There is a workaround for this by adding the following lines to /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/config/module.ini in the section [ClientAudio] :

VdcamVersion4Support=False

Source:
https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-workspace-app-for-linux/configure-xenapp.html#audio

Are they actually expecting people to not use pulseaudio and just use plain ALSA?
