Documenting Problems That Were Difficult To Find The Answer To

Change Keyboard Layout for Citrix Receiver for Linux

So you’re using Linux with a certain type of keyboard (in my case, US). And you’re using Citrix Receiver for Linux (Citrix client) running a Windows Remote Access Desktop – but inside your Windows sessions it appears that keys are not being mapped correctly – perhaps the CTRL and ALT keys aren’t being detected, perhaps your double quote is swapped with your at symbol.

To fix: you need to explicitly tell Citrix what type of keyboard you are using by editing
  ~/.ICAClient/wfclient.ini
and changing:

KeyboardLayout = (User Profile)

to

KeyboardLayout = US

or whatever keyboard you have from this list at support.citrix.com.

Those options are (in case the list is ever removed from the Citrix site):
