Printing Changes:

Sep 05, 2018  To install Citrix Receiver for Mac: Download the.dmg file for the version of Citrix Receiver for Mac you want to install from the Citrix web site and open it. On the Introduction page, click Continue. On the License page, click Continue. Click Agree to accept the terms of the License Agreement. Sep 19, 2018  Perhaps it would work to add the home printer to Google Cloud Print, then you could access it Citrix via the cloud (as long as your organization doesn't ban Google products). I haven't tested this particular configuration, but it should bypass the Citrix issue, and save you from always copying files to the home computer to print.

Printing in Citrix Receiver 11.8.2 has changed from the previous IS&T distributed version, 11.3.2. In 11.3.2, when initiating a print job, a dialog box would prompt in the Citrix App, followed by another, Mac OS print dialog box. While many users use this function for saving files to PDF within the Mac OS print dialog, this was considered redundant by Citrix and has been removed since version 11.4 (see Improved Printing Support note in the What's New section). Users are only able to configure their print jobs while in the Citrix App they are running.

Printing to PDF:
  1. Dec 01, 2005  The server is configured to allow me to print locally to 'clientme#Mac Printer'. It has worked fine until I upgraded to Citrix Client 7.00.406. I also have access to my local drive. This still works fine. I have a powerbook running OSX 10.3.9 (at the office) & an iMac 800 running OSX 10.4.3 (at home accessing the office via the internet).
  2. Aug 27, 2020  Citrix Workspace app for Mac overview High performance web and self-services access to virtual apps and desktops. Configure for anywhere access from your desktop or web access with Safari, Chrome or Firefox.

IS&T is working on a workaround for saving files to PDF from Citrix Apps, though none is available at this time. Users who need to print to PDF should remain on 11.3.2 or use desired app in a IS&T virtual machine.

This article provides a brief overview of the printing architecture with the 10.x versions of the Mac ICA Client.


The Mac 10.x ICA Client is a feature-rich client offering. Many of the same features found with Win32 clients/plug-ins. This includes the ability to autocreate all of the standard printer types defined on the Mac device for use within XenApp sessions.

Printing with the Mac 10.x Client

Because the print drivers on a Mac are not a direct match for the drivers on a Windows 2003 or 2008 Server, most Mac-defined printers autocreate using the HP Color LaserJet PS driver. This postscript driver is installed with XenApp and is part of the universal printing architecture. It must never be removed from the XenApp server. Mac clients cannot use the advanced Citrix Universal Print Driver because this driver is based on the Windows Enhanced Metafile Format (EMF) to process and spool documents.

In instances where the HP Color LaserJet PS driver does not work with a specific print device, driver mappings might be used. Such mappings might be implemented using the management console or through the use of the wtsuprn.inf file on each XenApp server. Mappings specify the client driver name and corresponding server driver to use. The use of wildcards is permitted for driver mappings to simplify the process.

The Mac ICA Client also brings with it the Enable Print Dialog feature. The Enable Print Dialog feature presents the user with a local print dialog on selecting print from the published application. Any configured printer might then be selected to send the job. Enable Print Dialog feature can be enabled or disabled using the File menu of the Citrix ICA Client.
Note:The Enable Print Dialog feature has been removed starting with version 11.4.x and later per Citrix Documentation - 'Users are now shown a single print dialog when printing, instead of the two print dialogs shown in previous releases.'
