VMWare View Client 4.6 on Raspberry Pi!

Waiting for the new Debian Image that will come soon, we can install VMWare View Client 4.6 !!!
Seem to be the harder part but... it's the simplest! VMWare View Client isn't released yet for Linux ARM (just for Ubuntu, but imho Ubuntu!=Linux) but in the last month vmware release lot of version of View Client (here some info), Ubuntu i386, MacOSx, iPad and Android. We hope soon vmware guys release a version for Linux ARM (that's quite easy, there are already ipad & android version!)
At the moment there are 2 way to use our preferred VMWare virtual machines via VMWare View Client:
1) using VMWare View Open Client opensource LGPL 2.1 package (old, unstable, not anymore updated)
2) using my package...

Let's install VMWare View Client 4.6:
apt-get install libcurl3
then
dpkg -i vmware-view-client_4.6_armel.deb


Then run the client!


Et voilà :-)

PS. pm me for the .deb!

  7. Hi. Likewise could you also send me a download link to the vmview 4.6 .deb please, not sure how to pm either...?
    I'm really keen to test this out as one of the main reasons I bought a pi, which arrived yesterday! I have a fairly large scale deployment of vmview 4.6 at work and also have security server deployed too for remote access. Currently access the environment from all receivers natively using pcoip, mac, android, iPad, windows and a variety of thin and zero clients... Using a pi would bring some new opportunity, not least a potential cost reduction!
    Many thanks in advance. Mike

  8. Sorry for the late reply... I'll release the VMWare View Client package only when i'll receive the Raspberry Pi board and tested it. I don't want to release something that work on qemu but not on the real board.
    Thanks,
    Gibbio

  25. Please share the downlod link of vmware-view-client_4.6_armel.deb. - debapriya.biswas@gmail.com

  26. I doubt that any such thing as vmware-view-client_4.6_armel.deb ever existed, except perhaps as a mislabeled version of 4.5.0.

    While I can't provide a Deb, I have made armhf binary tarballs (relative to the root directory) of some difficult-to-compile thin client applications for Raspberry Pi, including VMware View Open Client 4.5.0, OpenNX Client 0.16.0 (with NXComp and NXSSH 3.5.0), and Spice Client 0.12.4 (with CELT 0.5.1.3 and Spice-XPI 2.8.90 browser plugin) available at:

  27. Can anyone compile "vmware-view-client 2.2.0" for Raspberry Pi model B+??

    The said package (i386 binary) is available on Ubuntu LaunchPad -https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/i386/vmware-view-client/2.2.0-0ubuntu0.14.04

    ReplyDelete
  28. That package is a proprietary binary for which there is no source code.

    No doubt VMware could compile it for the Pi if they wanted to, but there's nothing anyone else can do unless/until VMware release source code (or someone revives the defunct VMware Open View open source project and does whatever reverse engineering is required to bring it up-to-date).
