VMware View client with Ubuntu

Ubuntu is currently the only Linux distribution that is officially supported by VMware for the VMware View client usage.  To obtain the software package, access the Software and Updates option under System Settings.  Access the Other Software tab and enable the option for Canonical Partners.

Allow the local package list to be updated.

Access the Software Center and search for VMware.  The View client should now be available.  Even though Ubuntu is the currently only official supported Linux version for the client, the same procedure can be used with other versions of Ubuntu such as XUbuntu and LUbuntu to install the application.
