You can sometimes resolve problems with Horizon Client by uninstalling and reinstalling the Horizon Client application.
Verify that you have root access on the Linux client system.
- ♦ In a Terminal window, change to the directory that contains the installer file, and run the installer command with the -u option.
Option Command For uninstallation, if you have set executable permissions
sudo env VMWARE_KEEP_CONFIG=yes \ ./VMware-Horizon-Client-YYMM-x.x.x-yyyyyyy.arch.bundle -u vmware-horizon-client
For uninstallation, if you have not set executable permissions
sudo chmod +x VMware-Horizon-Client-YYMM-x.x.x-yyyyyyy.arch.bundle sudo env VMWARE_KEEP_CONFIG=yes \ ./VMware-Horizon-Client-YYMM-x.x.x-yyyyyyy.arch.bundle -u vmware-horizon-client
In the installer filename, YYMM represents the marketing version number, x.x.x represents the internal version number, and yyyyyyy represents the build number. arch represents the CPU instruction set architecture.Note: If you are uninstalling version 5.5 or earlier of Horizon Client, the installer filename does not contain the marketing version number YYMM.
Using the VMWARE_KEEP_CONFIG=yes setting means retain the configuration settings when the client is uninstalled. If this environment variable is not set, you are prompted to specify whether to save the configuration settings.
