New update, new problem. My fullHD monitor is recognized as having 2490x1400 resolution. They say the problem is not on the VDI side but with the client. I can barely work, everything's so small and since all the display settings are locked on the system (enterprise logic). Any idea what the problem might be? There was also an nvidia update before this first occurred as well. For now I downgraded to 5.0.0-1, that works.

I resolved the problem @KorvinSilver. If you are using a VPN or proxy, you need to use cntlm to tunnel all connection.

-> yay cntlm
-> # edit /etc/cntlm.conf
-> sudo systemctl start cntlm 
-> sudo systemctl enable cntlm 
-> # edit ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc ( 
-> # export HTTP_PROXY="http://127.0.0.1:3128"
-> # export HTTPS_PROXY=$HTTP_PROXY

after doing that, you can try start again you vmware-horizon-client

Deleted all packages and reinstalled it from the archlinuxcn repo. Now it works, although in theory it's the same version just prebuilt. Here's the output difference:

I can't reproduce, sorry... Everything works as expected for me.

Bednar commented on 2019-05-03 13:16

I am having the exact same issue as KorvinSilver.

KorvinSilver commented on 2019-05-03 07:06

Stopped working today, no idea why, there's a lot of errors in the output. I can log in to the server I'm using, start the connection but it crashes a few seconds later before the desktop could load. I can log in from elsewhere, only this one's broken.

@eworm, thanks for maintaining this package. Could I suggest that you edit the desktop file and change from Icon=vmware-view.png to Icon=vmware-view? By changing it the icon will correctly show in Rofi and other launchers.

It could be vmware-horizon-client.desktop instead, but that's hardly important.

slav commented on 2019-03-15 20:46

Thank you for your help. Actually two more packages vmware-keymaps and openssl098 resolved issue.

eworm commented on 2019-03-15 09:51

Please install vmware-keymaps from AUR.
