Pulse Secure on Debian 9.1?

I hope I'm asking this in the correct place. I attend my local university and use Pulse Secure to remotely connect to their network to use some of the software from home. I've been using Ubuntu without issue, but I got a new computer and decided to try Debian for a change. I've got my system pretty much set up, and I'm loving it. Debian 9.1. Everything works but Pulse and I don't want to switch back just because of this if I don't have to. It seemed to install without issue. When I run the dependency script, it doesn't indicate any missing packages. But when I try to open Pulse, absolutely nothing happens. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi pw008,

Which version of Pulse Secure Client are you trying to install?

BTW Let me know if the following works:

sudo apt-get install net-tools
# Then install the Pulse Secure Linux Client, launch it and test it

Thanks everyone, I had forgotten about this post. I got around the issue for now by doing a full install of Ubuntu on a flash drive and installing Pulse Secure and Remmina there.
