Follow the below steps to download and install the VMWare Horizon client in Ubuntu 20.04.

1. Goto VMWare official site.

2. Scroll down to Desktop & End-User Computing section.

3. Click Download Product link in the VMware Horizon Clients line.

4. Select the version in the top-left dropdown if required or else leave it default.

5. Under VMware Horizon Client for Linux dropdown, Click Go To Downloads link either in the line VMware Horizon Client for 32-bit Linux or VMware Horizon Client for 64-bit Linux depending upon your system configuration.

6. Click DOWNLOAD NOW button.

A bundle file will start downloading in the name like VMware-Horizon-Client-2106.1-8.3.1-18435609.x64.bundle.
7. Open a terminal and execute the below command to install supporting files.
sudo apt install build-essential
8. Navigate to the directory where the downloaded VMware bundle is present. For example, if the file is downloaded to the Downloads directory, then execute the below command.
cd Downloads
9. Execute the below command and you will see a VMware installation popup screen. Replace the bundle name with the downloaded file name.
sudo bash VMware-Horizon-Client-xxxxxx.bundle

10. Follow the screen to complete the installation.

Sometimes you may face a below failure in the scan result.

VMware Horizon Multimedia Redirection (MMR)

In that case, execute the below commands in another terminal and retry the scan.

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
