As of the Linux VDA Version 1.4, Citrix has added support for published applications. Users can access a desired Linux application without the Linux desktop environment.
However, the native language bar on the Linux VDA was unavailable to the published application because the language bar is highly integrated with the Linux desktop environment. As a result, users were unable to input text in a language that requires IME such as Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. Further, it was also not possible for users to switch between keyboard layouts during an application session.
To address those issues, this feature provides a language bar for published applications that accept text input. The language bar enables users to select a server-side IME and to switch between keyboard layouts during an application session.
You can use the ctxreg utility to enable or disable this feature (disabled by default). The feature configuration on a given Linux VDA server applies to all applications published on that VDA.
The configuration key is “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Citrix\LanguageBar” and the type is DWORD.
To enable this feature, run the command:
To disable this feature, run the command:
The usage is straightforward.
