This document, VMware Horizon Client for Linux Installation and Setup Guide, provides information about installing, configuring, and using  VMware Horizon® Client™ software on a Linux client system.

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

Note: This document does not include instructions for installing the Linux operating system on a client system. For information about installing Linux, refer to the instructions provided by the maker of your Linux distribution.

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