    Installing vmware-view-client (depency issues)

    I have the Canonical Partners repository enabled as instructed. When I attempt to install vmware-view-client I get this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install vmware-view-client
    [sudo] password for ME: 
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:
    
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     vmware-view-client:i386 : Depends: libudev0:i386 (>= 147) but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    The error mentions i386 so perhaps running 64 bit Ubuntu is the trouble? I don't know.

    Anybody install this client?

    Re: Installing vmware-view-client (depency issues)

    So I built a 32 bit machine (also 13.04) and enabled the Partners repository. This is what I get on that build:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install vmware-view-client
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

    Am I the only person interested in this application/protocol?

    Hi, I'm interested in finding out how View works out for you so hope you come back with more info or a pm. Your post showed the error and a possible resolution as I've quoted below.

    A quick google search for libudev0 and you find this http://productforums.google.com/foru...me/FyszF27mzIc post as the 2nd hit...

    Reads like VMWare need to update their packing for the View client but a work around is to install the libudev0 package which you can download from the link in the above noted thread.

    Give it a try and post back you results, best of luck.

    Do you know how to file a bug report with VMWare?

    I have been using the VMware View Open Client with no issues at all. It is fast, stable, and more frequently updated.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install vmware-view-open-client

    The open client doesn't support PCoIP (only RDP so just use Remina).
