Solus forums not available for the last few days, need help installing Vmware Horizon Client


I used this forum entry to install Vmware Horizon Client a few times in the past. I reinstalled Solus on a new hard drive and can’t access the forum article to see the install commands.  I remember that I needed to install a few packages and then run the .bundle file from Vmware website but I can’t recall the package names.

I ran

sudo ./VMware-Horizon-Client-4.9.0-9507999.x64.bundle

The install was a success but the client won’t start. I see this as the error

budgie-panel.desktop[1105]: /usr/lib/vmware/view/bin/vmware-view-crtbora: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/ undefined symbol: _ZN4Glib6ObjectC2EOS0_

This is the output of the scan after install –

VMware Horizon Client Drive Redirection


VMware Horizon Multimedia Redirection (MMR)


VMware Horizon Smart Card


VMware Horizon Real-Time Audio-Video


VMware Horizon(R) Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business


VMware Horizon PCoIP

VMware Horizon SerialPort Redirection


VMware Horizon Seamless Window


VMware Horizon Virtual Printing


VMware Horizon Client

Turns out that is was 4.9 version, I removed 4.9 and installed 4.8

To remove

I spent hours trying to install 4.9. Turns out it wasn’t my this time: there is just a bug with the installer from VMWare. The 4.8 version worked like a charm. THANK YOU!
