Citrix ICA Client 10 and Ubuntu

If you have downloaded and installed the new Citrix ICA Client 10 in Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft you may have already discovered that it doesn't work out of the box.
You may receive some font errors or missing dependencies, and because Citrix doesn't provide a DEB package these missing dependencies are not detected by the tar.gz package installer.

To simplify the installation, or better the post-install steps, I've made a script available at http://codtech.com/downloads/citrix-icaclient-10-ubuntu which verifies that dependencies packages are installed and patch the configuration files to get rid of the error with UTF fonts.

Download the script, and if Citrix is installed in a system location use sudo to run it.
Don't forget to set ICAROOT in the environment if it's not /usr/lib/ICAClient.

Comments are welcome.

added an extra case in the switch statement and the script seems to work with Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron, so far so good.
