This guide, Using VMware Horizon Client for Linux, provides information about installing and using  VMware Horizon™ Client™ software on a Linux client system to connect to a View desktop in the datacenter.

The information in this document includes system requirements and instructions for installing and using Horizon Client for Linux.

This information is intended for administrators who need to set up a View deployment that includes Linux client systems. The information is written for experienced system administrators who are familiar with virtual machine technology and datacenter operations.

Note: This document pertains mostly to the Horizon Client for Linux that VMware makes available. In addition, several VMware partners offer thin and zero client devices for View deployments. The features that are available for each thin or zero client device, and the operating systems supported, are determined by the vendor, the model, and the configuration that an enterprise chooses to use. For information about the vendors and models for these client devices, see the VMware Compatibility Guide, available on the VMware Web site.
