I have a new installation of Ubuntu 18.04.2. I downloaded and installed VMware Horizon Client which has installed successfully.

I need to log onto a remote server using a web-login to authenticate. Once I have logged onto the portal and have selected my remote desktop, I get asked by Chrome if I want to open xdg-open. I select yes, but nothing happens, Horizon Client does not launch.

I have tried both Chrome and Firefox, fresh out of the box with no settings changed.

I am by no means a Linux expert so I may have done something basic wrong.

This is also my first question on the site so let me know if I have missed any info needed to solve this. Thanks!


Downgrading to version 4.80 seemed to resolve my issue.
