To use HorizonSmart Policies to control the behavior of remote desktop features on a remote Linux desktop, you must install User Environment Manager 9.4 or later on the remote Linux desktop.

You can download the User Environment Manager installer from the VMware Downloads page. You can install the User Environment Manager Management Console component on any desktop from which you want to manage the User Environment Manager environment.

For a linked-clone pool, you install User Environment Manager in the parent virtual machine that you use as a base image for the linked clones. For an RDS desktop pool, you install User Environment Manager on the RDS host that provides the published desktop sessions.

For User Environment Manager system requirements and complete installation instructions, see the Installing and Configuring VMware User Environment Manager document.
