How To Install VMware Horizon View 4.5 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

1. Prepare Your System with updates & latest patches

2. sudo apt-get update -y && sudo apt-get upgrade -y

3. Setup, Install and Symlink Libraries: 

sudo apt-get install libgstreamer0.10-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev
sudo apt-get install v4l-utils
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio
sudo ln -sf /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

4. Now download and install the VMware Horizon View Client

cd ~/Downloads/
sudo chmod u+x VM*
sudo ./VM*

FYI. You don't have to type/tab the whole path as long as this is the only VMware files in the path. It's Linux baby!!
