Install VMware Horizon Client (VMware View) on Ubuntu

If like me, you had issues with VMware horizon client package on your Ubuntu desktop, here are my tips.

Step 1 : download the installation package

https://my.vmware.com/en/web/vmware/info/slug/desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_horizon_clients/4_0#linux

Step 2 : make it executable and run it

chmod +x VMware-Horizon-Client-*******.x64.bundle
sudo ./VMware-Horizon-Client-*******.x64.bundle

This will install files but it's not runnable because you need some libs.

Step 3 : find and fix libs not found

To view needed libs, run : ldd /usr/lib/vmware/view/bin/vmware-view

Results is something like :
linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00007ffdb45e6000)
libatk-1.0.so.0 => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libatk-1.0.so.0 (0x00007fcb631a6000)
libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0 => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0 (0x00007fcb62f84000)
libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 (0x00007fcb62938000)
