Citrix Receiver v13 on Raspberry Pi

Just few days ago Citrix release the new Receiver Client v13, this release need more resources than the previous one but after a little tuning we handle it to fit into Raspberry Pi 256Mb version...


He is already in the armv6j.armtc.net repo but you have to "force" the update by: apt-get install icaclient
Please note: this new release is very RAM hungry so if you didn´t need anything than the Citrix Receiver (or you have the RaspberryPi 512Mb version) you can use it!
