How to get at the virtual UWP

Use Firefox to connect to https://uwp.rug.nl, log in and choose your application/desktop.
Chrome/Chromium doesn't support the ICA client plug-in properly and only uses HTML5 which in turn doesn't support a direct connection to your local drives/resources.

How to connect your local drive(s) to https://uwp.rug.nl.

After you've installed the Citrix Receiver a.k.a. the ICA Client, you can add the following to it's config. This will make your local drives available.
Note: On the LWP this is done automatically!

There should be a file "~/.ICAClient/wfclient.ini" in your home dir. Open it with your favourite editor and add the following below the "[WFClient]" header; replacing the path and any settings you want different of course:

DrivePath?=/path/to/your/drive
DriveEnabled?=Yes
DriveReadAccess?=0
DriveWriteAccess?=0
  • ?: choose any UPPERCASE letter that is not already in use by Windows.
  • DriveEnabled: Yes to automatically mount in Windows on login.
  • DriveReadAccess: 0 = yes, 1 = no
  • DriveWriteAccess: 0 = yes, 1 = no
