Since updating to 5.3.0-4, the client cannot open full-screen in gnome, at least not completely. The top bar is still visible which causes the remote view to contain annoying scrollbars. Gnome version 3.360 Wayland (Edit: The same thing happens in Gnome XOrg)

The 5.3 (5.2) client runs normally in KDE plasma only as root. In other DE (gnome, mate, xfce4) - works normally under a normal user. How do I find the cause of the problem? Advise...

I tried installing(Manjaro) via: sudo sh ./Downloads/VMware-Horizon-Client-5.3.0-15208949.x64.bundle

Bad idea. You should build packages and install that.

I tried installing(Manjaro) via: sudo sh ./Downloads/VMware-Horizon-Client-5.3.0-15208949.x64.bundle

and after typing "yes" to agree i just get a:

Installation was unsuccessful.

Any thoughts on how to install?

yes. I use full screen on all monitors and enable display on the secondary monitor. Pulldown of top bar can be triggered from the same location on the primary monitor. Must be some recent bug. This wasn't the case in a previous version.

Has anyone else experienced the issue where the docked top bar won't come down when you hover over it?

@KorvinSilver In case of problems with the display resolution just disable display scaling. In the Linux build of the software it doesn't show the option to disable scaling, so you have to add the line view.enableDisplayScaling = "FALSE" to the file ~/.vmware/view-preferences.

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:
