3. execute install script from the extracted directory as 'root' user(sudo in ubuntu)
4. Now create link to plugin in firefox

ragha@hoysala:/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins$ln -s /usr/lib/ICAClient/linuxx86/npica.so npica.so
5. Restart your firefox

this is 32bit Linux ONLY. Citrix guys dont have native x64 bit support
if you run on x64 bit:

$ firefox
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /home/nmenon/ICAClient/linuxx86/npica.so [/home/nmenon/ICAClient/linuxx86/npica.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32]

uname -a on my machine:
Linux coyote 2.6.24-19-generic #1 SMP Wed Aug 20 17:53:40 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux
