To install all versions of packettracer except 7.2.2, follow this guidelines: 1. Download the snapshot from this AUR. 2. Tar -zxf the packettracer.tar.gz snapshot (it creates the dir packettracer/ with the PKGBUILD on it). 3. Download the latest packettracer tarball from your Netacad account and copy it into the packettracer/ dir. 4. Create the package with the command makepkg (it creates a packettracer.pkg.tar.xz). 5. Install the package with either makepkg -i or sudo pacman -U packettracer.pkg.tar.xz.

Packettracer 7.2.2 are auto installable via run file, download it from netacad webpage and run it, you don't need this package.

@slimfx спасибо большое за ссылку

Hey,thanks for the instruction, JoshuaCMartin (comment below). I'm from Russia, so I had to download via VPN, with low speed. Downloaded from here https://skillsforall.com/resources/lab-downloads . Uploaded it for your convenience. Russians, turn off the Internet before running the application, otherwise it does not work (cisco blocked Russia) // Перезалил для вашего удобства. Россияне, выключайте интернет перед запуском приложения, иначе оно не работает (cisco заблокировало Россию) https://mega.nz/file/634gSbwS#cPxUGCOfL3lI7jgta2XwXkYYQV_ZzSzhvSlZ2TdtyIM

@pavlon1988, I am unable to provide a Packet Tracer file to you given the restrictions against Russia. Even once you install Packet Tracer, you have to login to your Cisco account and because your Cisco account is blocked, you won't be able to access Packet Tracer at all.

I know this impacts a lot of Russian citizens and I apologize for the inconvenience due to the Russian's invasion of Ukraine, but I cannot be of any help to you. I am so sorry about that. :(

pavlon1988 commented on 2022-08-04 15:50 (UTC)

Сan anyone download and give a link to CiscoPacketTracer_820_Ubuntu_64bit.deb ? Im from russia and my cisco account is blocked

JoshuaCMartin commented on 2022-04-13 23:55 (UTC) (edited on 2022-04-14 00:03 (UTC) by JoshuaCMartin)

Easy install. Arch (Endeavour) 22.1 with KDE 5.24.4 on X11

Download ONE of the following:
PacketTracer Download (Network Academy Student Login Required): https://www.netacad.com/portal/node/488
Packet Tracer Download (Free Account Required): https://skillsforall.com/resources/lab-downloads

Commands:

  1. sudo pacman -Syu qt5-multimedia qt5-webengine qt5-svg qt5-networkauth qt5-websockets qt5-script qt5-speech
  2. git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/packettracer.git
  3. cd packettracer
  4. cp ~/Downloads/CiscoPacketTracer_811_Ubuntu_64bit.deb ./packettracer
  5. cd packettracer
  6. makepkg -i


Line 1 may be unneccessary, it was for me, but apparently these are unlisted dependencies.
That's it.

Essem commented on 2022-04-05 20:39 (UTC)

Seems like the Skills for All login is broken on KDE; however, it's possible to work around this by using the system libraries instead (with the exception of OpenSSL). Example:

LD_PRELOAD="/opt/packettracer/bin/libcrypto.so.1.1 /opt/packettracer/bin/libssl.so.1.1" PTDIR=/opt/packettracer /opt/packettracer/bin/PacketTracer

hypnoant commented on 2022-03-19 21:21 (UTC)

You need to rename the package now slightly so that this will work.

Completing their knowledge course is not required, just an account registration. Their instructions would have you believe otherwise. I used this url to download the 811 version: https://skillsforall.com/resources/lab-downloads

auruser_12 commented on 2022-03-09 20:43 (UTC)

To avoid having to create an account to use this (their website was completely broken for me this week), simply start the software without internet access :)

maverick1 commented on 2022-03-08 06:47 (UTC) (edited on 2022-03-08 06:48 (UTC) by maverick1)

I had to install some of the qt5 packages to get it working. The runtime dependencies need to be updated to include the following.

  • qt5-multimedia

  • qt5-webengine

  • qt5-svg

  • qt5-networkauth

  • qt5-websockets

  • qt5-script

  • qt5-speech

sgorblex commented on 2022-01-15 14:21 (UTC)

/etc/profile.d/packettracer.sh should be a sh-compatible, sourceable script. Please do not use bashisms (like function). Also, there's no need for a shebang, since the script is meant to be sourced, not executed.

This is a possible fixed version: https://pastebin.com/cvgVniCk

The current version breaks for shells other than Bash, e.g. Dash.

micwoj92 commented on 2021-12-01 16:30 (UTC)

Then mark it out of date instead of commenting about it.

Hi, I successfully installed packettracer following @runnytu comment. However, I wanted to let you know that the latest packettracker available on Netacad is now 8.1.0, so I had to update the version and the sha512 of the PKGBUILD. Thank you for this package!

blondie commented on 2021-11-15 14:08 (UTC)

works great once u have it setup but is a massive pain in the ass to setup

GraysonPeddie commented on 2021-10-10 21:17 (UTC)

And please, please read the comment from @runnytu before reporting an error. If a Linux terminal outputs an error that the deb file is not found, that's because Packet Tracer has not be downloaded from Cisco.com yet.

GraysonPeddie commented on 2021-10-10 21:15 (UTC)

@panagiss,

Log into your Cisco account, download the Ubuntu version of Packet Tracer, and put it in the AUR's packettracer folder.

Needed it for school work. Works properly. (upvoted)

GraysonPeddie commented on 2021-07-26 11:57 (UTC) (edited on 2021-07-26 12:00 (UTC) by GraysonPeddie)

Yeah. That can be a problem when taking the module exams and practice certification exams. Blame it on Cisco, as the developers did not test their program with light and dark themes. I even get white text in white background in some areas when using a dark theme in KDE. Dark theme in GNOME? Works just fine as the GTK theme is not associated with Packet Tracer.

Plus, Cisco did not enumerate the list of fonts installed in a Linux system. When working in a terminal, I get a sans font instead of a monospace font. When I get an error, the marker will not be placed where an error occurred. I've had to copy the command and the output to the text editor that already uses a monospace font to find out what went wrong.

erylflynn commented on 2021-07-26 04:53 (UTC)

Thanks, running in Plasma though. I got it to launch a bit better adding your line to the application launch line but tried it for the application association and it still launches as before if I take a pkt file and open.

GraysonPeddie commented on 2021-07-25 22:55 (UTC)

@erylflynn Add or modify the .desktop file for cisco-pt,desktop:

grayson@grayson-epcotcenter
  ~
 $ cat .local/share/applications/cisco-pt.desktop 
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Exec=XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME /opt/packettracer/packettracer %f
Name=Packet Tracer 8.0.0
Icon=/opt/packettracer/art/app.png
Terminal=false
StartupNotify=true
MimeType=application/x-pkt;application/x-pka;application/x-pkz;

Categories=Application;Network;

Add XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME to ExecStart= before /opt/packettracer/packettracer %f and that should solve the problem unless you open Packet Tracer in GNOME desktop.

erylflynn commented on 2021-07-25 17:38 (UTC)

Is there a way to fix some of the font coloring issues? I use a dark theme and find some menus are not visible unless I hover or click on where they are. Otherwise the font and the background are the same. So far not finding anyway to correct, not sure what the font/background is in the theme.

rabanad commented on 2021-07-22 03:51 (UTC) (edited on 2021-07-22 05:30 (UTC) by rabanad)

The latest file from the Cisco website is CiscoPacketTracer_801_Ubuntu_64bit.deb, I edited the PKGBUILD filename dependency and used updpkgsums and installed everything but when I run PacketTracer, nothing happens. Sorry I'm really new to all of this, any help?

EDIT: Got it to work by installing Qt5, but I can only launch it from the terminal, not the shortcut when using an application finder.

SCREEN FREEZE: steps to reproduce

on save dialog box showing lab1.pkt already saved in folder if u want to add lab2.pkt start typing 'l..' it will start search same names and freeze whole window manger.

I have to do ctrl alt f2 to kill packetTracer.

Version : 8.0-2
Desktop env : DWM
Kernel : 5.12.13-arch1-2

erylflynn commented on 2021-06-08 20:23 (UTC)

Only problem is that it does not like spaces in paths. Probably need to quote out the following lines in the package build.

chown -R 0:0 ${pkgdir}
mv ${pkgdir}/opt/pt/ ${pkgdir}/opt/packettracer/
mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/"

ritikrajdev commented on 2021-05-10 17:26 (UTC)

Please add qt5-script as a dependency.

arcman's solution prints a lot of jargon making each directory of that permission which is not needed. A more elegant solution is needed to the problem. runnytu, can you incorporate the changes suggested in the last two comments ASAP??

baioc commented on 2021-04-22 19:30 (UTC) (edited on 2021-04-22 19:31 (UTC) by baioc)

In KDE the installation fails at the very last step with gtk-update-icon-cache: No theme index file.
This can be fixed by adding the --ignore-theme-index flag to the gtk-update-icon-cache command in packettracer.install and then updating that file's sha512sum in the PKGBUILD.

the program still installs and opens fine(i haven't really used it yet). maybe this line should be added at the end of the PKGBUILD?:

@con-fused follow instructions from @runnytu and download the deb file from netacad.com once you create an account with Cisco.

Also, use the Markdown syntax. A "```" (without quotes) makes it a code and preserves the formatting of command output.

Than its pretty much isnt non interactive, since you have to act to do something for it to work.

@lberrymag now its working, THANKS!

lberrymage commented on 2021-02-10 06:20 (UTC)

@rahul_negi21 That's because you're trying to use the 8.0 PKGBUILD to install Packet Tracer 7.3.1. If you download the 8.0 .deb it should work fine.

I am facing the same issue with PacketTracer_731_amd64 :

CodingKoopa commented on 2021-02-02 16:37 (UTC)

Isn't the link in line 15 of the PKGBUILD wrong?

The url field of the PKGBUILD only serves to provide a link to the upstream website (see: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#url).

The part of the PKGBUILD that tell makepkg where to get the files from is the source array. It currently references local://PacketTracer..., which is correct - as the pinned comment states, you have to provide the tarball from Netacad yourself.

(I know that you would need to provide a username and password, but that's possible right? curl -u can do it, so...)

It gave me an error (of course my first reaction was not "let's go check the AUR's comments). So...

Q: Isn't the link in line 15 of the PKGBUILD wrong? The download link for linux is "https://www.netacad.com/portal/resources/file/a2704df8-10f2-4a04-8d6b-a7c40d38d550", which would download the actual .deb file and install it without errors.

@guitaristtom From the wiki:

AUR helpers are not supported by Arch Linux. You should become familiar with the manual build process...

so to answer your question, no. PKGBUILDS should download the source code/binaries automatically, but since Packet Tracer doesn't have a stable download link, we are forced to download it manually.

guitaristtom commented on 2021-01-13 01:44 (UTC)

Isn't the point of having it on the AUR so that we don't have to download and do makepkg manually? 0_o

It seems like in PacketTracer_731_amd64.deb, all files are now owned by drevil:drevil (1000:1000). This is an obvious case of broken upstream, and the package will have to work around it - just running chown after tar might be good enough.

@runnytu Will you please remove the sudo commands in packettracer.install? It's not required since package installation occurs as root, and one can't assume the user has sudo installed anyway since it's not in the base or base-devel groups.

Please add a a sha512sum for packettracer.install too if you wouldn't mind :)

@marcelobaptista THAT'S what I'm talking about! Thanks marcelobaptista!

Can't you use one of the mirrors who publicly publish PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb on internet? So it will be fully automatic, I see plenty https://duckduckgo.com/?q=PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb

And if you're afraid use the website who also are on the libre domain, and do a checksum on what's downloaded
the user more advised will use their third party URL who authorize non authenticated download and it will be WAY faster

marcelobaptista commented on 2020-08-22 12:17 (UTC)

I created a script for installing Packet Tracer 7.3.1, just run and it will do all the work. Tested with sucess on Arch Linux, Manjaro and openSUSE Tumbleweed.

chef0132 commented on 2020-08-19 01:36 (UTC)

My bad for my previous post. It works pretty fine by following the instructions in the pinned comment. Props to the packager and maintainer! It's not useless as donfrank says especially if you use the application for work or study. Though it's just inconvenient a bit especially for new users (I just switch to arch) because of the way cisco packages it. Thanks guys

dkaylor commented on 2020-08-17 10:57 (UTC)

@donfrank: The packaging is certainly not ideal in this case, but it's a result of the way cisco packages it and the way they distribute it. It is certainly not "useless" to the numerous people who use it. Or presumably to the maintainer. You are more than welcome to not use it.

dkaylor commented on 2020-08-12 10:45 (UTC)

Second time, what are you talking about? yay is adapted to the AUR, it's this package who isn't adapted to AUR. For the second time, the "third party card" doesn't always work? And no, I don't have any problems with AUR PKGBUILD or makepkg, just with "local://PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb"

No they don't have to make it yay compliant, but AUR compliant, and here it's not

koatao commented on 2020-06-18 10:40 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-18 10:43 (UTC) by koatao)

yay is not official, it is an AUR helper, therefor, yay should adapt to the AUR, not the other way around. If you have a problem with the way AUR, PKGBUILD, makepkg and so on are designed , then you make your case on the forum, mail, wiki (anywhere but here would be a better place). Obviously, maintainers does not have to make their AUR package yay compliant. READ the wiki (first line): https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_helpers. They are NOT SUPPORTED. This package is compliant with the SUPPORTED way to do things. So yeah, i think your problem is with the way the supported way works, and not packettracer package in particular. So I invite you to start new forum post, so things discussed here are kept related to this package.

bkb commented on 2020-06-18 10:19 (UTC)

What are you talking about, it has nothing to do with yay, all packages works nicely with it. It's this package that it's not installable without manual intervention

Think a little before invoking dumbly the "third party" card

The problem will remain the same even if someday pacman develop something for AUR packages

koatao commented on 2020-06-18 09:59 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-18 10:00 (UTC) by koatao)

@bkb Then your problem is with yay. And here is not the place to discuss about it. It has nothing to do with this package specifically.

bkb commented on 2020-06-18 09:19 (UTC)

@xiretza corrected

xiretza commented on 2020-06-17 17:45 (UTC)

pacman does not build packages. pacman will never build packages. there is nothing an AUR package can do to make pacman -Syu build it.

bkb commented on 2020-06-17 17:44 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-18 09:19 (UTC) by bkb)

Like always

For me automatic = yay -Syu, everything else = non automatic

koatao commented on 2020-06-17 14:06 (UTC)

@bkb, no, you don't have to compile anything yourself to install version 7.3.0. You need 4 files before using makepkg: PKGBUILD of course, packettracer.install, packettracer.sh and PacketTacer_730_amd64.deb.

bkb commented on 2020-06-17 07:20 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-18 09:19 (UTC) by bkb)

@xiretza You right, the big problem is that we need to manually compile

I try to make the installation automatic with all other packages on a yay -Syu

xiretza commented on 2020-06-16 18:06 (UTC)

@bkb: what exactly would your change even be? Since PKGBUILDs can't be interactive, you'd have to change it to add the URL before you build anyway. If you're doing that, just change source=(), which is the one supported way to download sources.

bkb commented on 2020-06-16 06:46 (UTC)

@runnytu sure but my method adds nothing forbidden on the pkgbuild, so why not implementing it?

koatao commented on 2020-06-15 20:50 (UTC)

good job! Thanks !

runnytu commented on 2020-06-15 19:03 (UTC)

I Changed the old script to a bash one, @bkb, as another user already said to you, it's no problem of "afraid" or "more advised" users, it's because cisco forbids all redistribute of packettracer package without their consent, it's already warned in the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PacketTracer#Disclaimer

koatao commented on 2020-06-15 15:30 (UTC)

@bkb, I don't see where is the issue with the download, you can modify the PKGBUILD yourself if you don't want to download it manually on the official website.

bkb commented on 2020-06-15 06:41 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-15 06:59 (UTC) by bkb)

I have an idea, the script ask for an URL, if one is given he tries to download and work from it. If none he uses the traditional method

It doesn't changes anything appart adding a wget and for us it changes everything because for now we had to do many steps manually, but with that we only have to copy/paste an URL and let the rest be

The users who are afraid to use third party sources will use the manual method downloading from NetAcad, and the user more advised will use their third party URL who authorize non authenticated download and it will be WAY faster

And I think it adds nothing illegal to put a wget $askedURL, no illegal material, we put ourselves the copyrighted part

koatao commented on 2020-06-14 22:36 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-14 22:37 (UTC) by koatao)

@ruunytu, I'm starting to understand now. And you are totally right, there should be a /etc/profile.d script according to the .deb package. But your packettracer.sh script is not a bash or sh script (i guess you must be running another shell). It should be corrected. There is a postint script in the .deb package of 7.3.0 like you said exporting PT7HOME (env var needed for exam from what I've read) and exporting QT_DEVICE_PIXEL_RATIO (this var is marked as deprecated in favor QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR related to qtdiag-qt5 hence the version check in the script I guess).

xiretza commented on 2020-06-14 11:50 (UTC)

It is not a valid shell script and cannot possibly belong in /etc/profile.d. Try running sh -c 'source /etc/profile.d/packettracer.sh' and tell me it doesn't error.

runnytu commented on 2020-06-14 11:25 (UTC)

@koatao, CISCO it's providing it in the official .deb package, because it's needed for open packettracer from all directories (export PT7HOME), and if you have high DPI on your system (QT_VERSION_CHECK), I tested on my system without any issues since the first time, and yes, it's correct place is profile.d.

Check that you have all dependencies and the whole base package of archlinux installed.

koatao commented on 2020-06-14 07:01 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-14 07:11 (UTC) by koatao)

Hi, @ElNinijo, the problem is, the script is not a bash script. Here what I understood about what the script does: export PT7HOME (/opt/packettracer) as environnement variable. Depending on the version of Qt (QT_VERSION > QT_VERSION_CHECK(5,5,0)), export QT_AUTO_SCALE_FACTOR (= 1) if version of Qt is superior to 5.5, else export QT_DEVICE_PIXEL_AUTO (= auto). @ruunyti, how did you test this script ? Why do we need it ? I deleted it, and packettracer is working fine without it (only got one bug yet). And is it really a good idea to put this script in profile.d if it is only needed to packettracer? (meaning it will be sourced for every instances of Bash).

ElNinijo commented on 2020-06-08 11:57 (UTC)

-bash: /etc/profile.d/packettracer.sh: line 4: syntax error near unexpected token (' -bash: /etc/profile.d/packettracer.sh: line 4:if QT_VERSION > QT_VERSION_CHECK(5, 5, 0)'

after update to the newest version i receive these info, where is porblem?

@horaciohs, Yes, it's necessary, and no errors are shown on my terminal or log.

xiretza commented on 2020-05-26 15:58 (UTC)

Nothing is being compiled anywhere. Speaking of which, shouldn't this really be a -bin package?

@bkb: you can change the source= yourself if you want to download the binaries from a non-official location. Or, as you say, just install it from Cisco and lose all the advantages a package manager gives you.

bkb commented on 2020-05-26 13:13 (UTC) (edited on 2020-05-26 13:13 (UTC) by bkb)

The principle of a package manager is to automatize updates, if you didn't give any way to automatize this installation it's basically useless, it's just installing from Cisco with extra steps

horaciohs commented on 2020-05-26 00:01 (UTC)

packettracer 7.3.0-5 : as CodingKoopa said, every terminal are showing in beginning: bash: ./packettracer.sh: line 4: syntax error near unexpected token (' bash: ./packettracer.sh: line 4:if QT_VERSION > QT_VERSION_CHECK(5, 5, 0)'

Is /etc/profile.d/packettracer.sh necessary ?

All fixed.

Can't you use one of the mirrors who publicly publish PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb on internet? So it will be fully automatic, I see plenty https://duckduckgo.com/?q=PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb

And if you're afraid use the website who also are on the libre domain, and do a checksum on what's downloaded

Could NoDisplay=true be patched into /usr/share/applications/cisco-ptsa7.desktop? It's only for handling pttp:// URLs, so it doesn't have to show up in application menus.

CodingKoopa commented on 2020-04-13 21:00 (UTC) (edited on 2020-04-13 21:01 (UTC) by CodingKoopa)

I think packettracer.sh should be removed from this package.

  • PT7HOME doesn't seem to be necessary for Packet Tracer to work.
  • QT_DEVICE_PIXEL_RATIO is a deprecated variable (more info here: https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/highdpi.html). I don't really see why this variable falls within the scope of what should be set by this package anyways, though. Moreover, since the script is installed to /etc/profile.d/, this will be applied to all programs. Being deprecated, this causes a lot of warnings to be created in the system log.

Cthulu201 commented on 2020-03-31 19:25 (UTC)

I installed an older snapshot on a different system without any issue. I installed 7.3.0 on another fresh system and am getting "File Not Found" on device icons: https://ncry.pt/p/RsPn#6Xy3_ynpBaD4XMm4kLsSKuJHlfkC2KStB1pbkVtxJ4c

I created a script for installing Packet Tracer 7.3.0. Tested on Arch Linux, Manjaro and openSUSE Tumbleweed.

runnytu commented on 2020-03-18 18:13 (UTC)

@fatOwl, the same way used to install, follow the pinned comment, with the new version of packettracer and AUR tarball.

fatOwl commented on 2020-03-18 13:57 (UTC)

Hi, maybe this is a dumb question, but I don't know how to upgrade the package. I installed it using the pinned comment, but don't know how to proceed with the upgrade

btclark commented on 2020-03-16 23:07 (UTC)

Thanks to runnytu, I downloaded 7.2.2 after spending all afternoon struggling with 7.3 (manually trying to extract and locate files and folders, update libraries and download debian utilities, finally coming here.) I guess everyone learns to check comments here before doing all of that/ TIL...

Volteos commented on 2020-03-08 13:41 (UTC) (edited on 2020-03-08 13:46 (UTC) by Volteos)

@runnytu

I got it! Thanks, had to put the .deb file not the tarball in the packettracer folder, sorry I'm still new to this!

Then pacman -U the created tarball! It works! ^~^

runnytu commented on 2020-03-08 12:16 (UTC)

@Volteos, You should follow the instructions of the pinned comment.

@riazufila, fix it, and @Rowisi, also remove java from dependencies.

riazufila commented on 2020-02-26 13:39 (UTC) (edited on 2020-02-26 13:45 (UTC) by riazufila)

Is it just me, or packettracer can't be executed anywhere from the terminal? I have to cd to /opt/packettracer to use it.

runnytu commented on 2020-02-23 12:19 (UTC)

@Rowisi, Java is needed to serve: /opt/packettracer/extensions/ptaplayer/ptaplayer-12.009.jar, I don't use PTA and can't confirm if without java PTA is still working ok or not, if someone can confirm that PTA is working without java I remove Java from dependencies.

These informations are in the official .deb file:

Java is no longer in dependencies as I said

commented on 2020-02-22 15:01 (UTC)

@runnytu before installing this package. I have deleted java-runtime from dependencies array and I don't have Java installed. Still everything I used works fine in Packettracer. Not sure what Java is needed for...

runnytu commented on 2020-02-22 13:34 (UTC)

@Rowisi, If you read carefully it says "Starting with version 7.2.2 Packet Tracer no longer requires Java for use with assessments", only for assessments, now you don't need java plugin in a web browser because it's integrated into the package, but still, it's needed for the package working.

commented on 2020-02-21 18:31 (UTC)

Starting with version 7.2.2 Packet Tracer no longer requires Java. please remove it from deps

I'm on manjaro 18.1.5 with the 4.19 LTS kernel.

You have to manually install this. Because in the PKGBUILD file he has this line to download the binary .deb file yourself: source=('local://PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb' 'packettracer.sh')

You can either download it from some random website, or make an account on netacad.com. I got it from official site, and friend got it from some other source. Ours both had the same hash value, which also matches the sha512sum in the PKGBUILD here:
sha256sum PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb
67d8acee7e101d99e12e47c74bc8ed56c28a596adaa2f3032593fbe0bb83198c PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb

What I did was run "yay -S packettracer" which puts all the necessary files in "/home/$USER/.cache/yay/packettracer/". It gives an error:
ERROR: PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

Delete the packettracer folder, then set it up manually.
cd /home/$USER/.cache/yay && git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/packettracer.git
copy the "PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb" file into this packettracer folder. And now run "yay -S packettracer" and it installs without any errors cuz it finds the .deb file at source=('local://PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb'......).

When you run "yay -S packettracer", it asks: ==> Packages to cleanBuild?
Hit 'n' for no. If you hit yes, it deletes the entire git repo dir we just set up.

dkazantzas commented on 2020-01-28 10:55 (UTC)

Why don't you put a link to the deb file instead of leaving it as a responsibility of the user?

ehwuts commented on 2020-01-28 06:54 (UTC)

This package is missing several dependencies to covers PacketTracer7's needed libraries. Not sure what the specific requirements are, but to get what I was missing I installed qt5-svg qt5-webkit qt5-script qt5-multimedia qt5-webengine.

eduardosm commented on 2020-01-25 19:45 (UTC)

The symbolic link created in the install file should be done in the PKGBUILD.

waranty92 commented on 2020-01-13 11:25 (UTC)

I get this message when trying to start exam on Plasma. Could not find any application or handler for pttp://launchvdsptsa... I think there should be .desktop file that handles these links.

Namarrgon commented on 2020-01-08 16:42 (UTC) (edited on 2020-01-08 17:05 (UTC) by Namarrgon)

The .install script in this package is an abomination and should never have been uploaded to the internet as is.

  • Don't use sudo in .install scripts, the sudo package is potentially not even installed on the target system and the scripts run under UID 0 anyway.

  • The remove_pt() in pre_install() stuff belongs either in the PKGBUILD or should be removed since it's not used anywhere in the script. Why should these files not be tracked by pacman?

  • Updating the various icon/desktop/mime DBs and caches should be left to the libalpm hooks that provide these binaries, it doesn't belong here.

  • Editing files that or owned by other packages is a big NO! NO!, you do not simply mangle /etc/profile, this has to go away. We have /etc/profile.d for this exact reason or alternatively communicate to the user that they have to set them manually in their configs.

deemon commented on 2020-01-04 21:17 (UTC) (edited on 2020-01-04 22:02 (UTC) by deemon)

TLDR: For getting it to work in Manjaro I had to: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libdouble-conversion.so /opt/packettracer/bin/libdouble-conversion.so.1

.

While installing the package, I get those warnings:

warning: directory permissions differ on /opt/packettracer/help/

filesystem: 755 package: 777

warning: directory permissions differ on /opt/packettracer/saves/

filesystem: 755 package: 555

But it seems to install fine, but it does not run in my Manjaro by default.

[deemon@Zen packettracer]$ /opt/packettracer/packettracer

Starting Packet Tracer 7.3.0

[deemon@Zen packettracer]$

...aaand nothing happens.

.

.

OI! got it working... while analyzing the contents of bash script /opt/packettracer/packettracer (default installed executable for this program) I tried to run the command with the given variables...

[deemon@Zen packettracer]$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/packettracer/bin PTDIR=/opt/packettracer /opt/packettracer/bin/PacketTracer7

/opt/packettracer/bin/PacketTracer7: error while loading shared libraries: libdouble-conversion.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

and then tried to run it WITHOUT the LD_LIBRARY_PATH crap and it started working!!! :-)

[deemon@Zen packettracer]$ /opt/packettracer/bin/PacketTracer7

and it WORKS! :)

and or creating symbolic link for the library works also: [deemon@Zen bin]$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libdouble-conversion.so /opt/packettracer/bin/libdouble-conversion.so.1

To install all versions of packettracer except 7.2.2, follow this guidelines: 1. Download the snapshot from this AUR. 2. Tar -zxf the packettracer.tar.gz snapshot (it creates the dir packettracer/ with the PKGBUILD on it). 3. Download the latest packettracer tarball from your Netacad account and copy it into the packettracer/ dir. 4. Create the package with the command makepkg (it creates a packettracer.pkg.tar.xz). 5. Install the package with either makepkg -i or sudo pacman -U packettracer.pkg.tar.xz.

Packettracer 7.2.2 are auto installable via run file, download it from netacad webpage and run it, you don't need this package.

bandithijo commented on 2019-12-14 16:16 (UTC)

Packet Tracer 7.3.0 has released. They change installer from .run on (7.2.2) to .deb now (7.3.0).

Newer versions of PacketTracer can be extracted manually using the QT installer framework's devtool.

commented on 2019-10-02 07:25 (UTC)

The Latest Version can be installed normally by running the run file.

Can confirm. But needs community/libpng12 to run.

CookieAlice commented on 2019-09-17 14:37 (UTC)

The Latest Version can be installed normally by running the run file. First Uninstall the old thing though. sudo rm -rf /opt/pt

this build needs to be edited for the run file.

pierryangelo commented on 2019-08-24 14:12 (UTC)

Updated: In order to install Packet Tracer just follow runnytu comment, but you must edit PKGBUILD file like that:

original: source=('packettracer' 'linguist' 'packettracer.sh' 'local://Packet Tracer 7.2.1 for Linux 64 bit.tar.gz')

the way that works: source=('packettracer' 'linguist' 'packettracer.sh' 'local://packet_tracer_7.2.1_for_linux_64_bit.tar.gz')

The other way is just rename the file according to PKGBUILD.

RobertS6 commented on 2019-05-23 15:42 (UTC)

Thank you so much for the package. Keep up the good work.

Rawleenc commented on 2019-04-02 07:25 (UTC) (edited on 2019-04-02 07:25 (UTC) by Rawleenc)

@runnytu please add qt5-x11extras in dependencies, since the last system update packettracer fail to launch with the following exception :

"Fatal: This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb"."

Installing qt5-x11extras fix this issue.

FFY00 commented on 2019-03-11 20:50 (UTC) (edited on 2019-03-11 20:50 (UTC) by FFY00)

FFY00 commented on 2019-03-01 23:45 (UTC) (edited on 2019-03-11 20:56 (UTC) by FFY00)

You are working with a binary blob. This should be installed to /opt.

See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_package_guidelines#Directories

It falls under "Large self-contained packages".

Also, where the hell did you read installing to /opt is disallowed?!

runnytu commented on 2019-02-25 14:30 (UTC)

@FFY00, installing to opt is disallowed, install in /usr/share/packettracer/ makes that more clean and follow arch-guidelines.

FFY00 commented on 2019-02-25 11:19 (UTC)

Please intsall this to /opt!

pandadilama commented on 2018-12-19 22:27 (UTC)

I think we can safely replace icu52 dependency by icu (or currently icu63). Then it compile for me.

-depends_x86_64=('openssl-1.0' 'libpng12' 'icu52') +depends_x86_64=('openssl-1.0' 'libpng12' 'icu')

For people using the AUR-helper "yay":

Download the tarball from Cisco.

yay -S packettracer

^^^ BEFORE FINISHING UP THIS INSTALL:

mv tarball /home/$USER/.cache/yay/packettracer

Then finish the yay -S install.

commented on 2018-10-03 16:08 (UTC)

Since packettracer 7.2, when doing "Save as" and typing a name, as soon as it shows you some files that already exist, the current session hangs on. Cannot open any program, not able to click anything.

Ruedi commented on 2018-08-26 08:33 (UTC) (edited on 2018-08-26 08:43 (UTC) by Ruedi)

Using Wayland and another keyboard layout than English? Here's a workaround that works for me on Gnome 3 under Wayland.

Open a terminal and type in:

setxkbmap -layout [your favourite language] (-variant [your favourite layout variant])

Example for German users:

setxkbmap -layout de (-variant nodeadkeys)

You also can write a script and an autostart file to avoid manually executing the command.

Here some keywords for Google: Tastatur, deutsch, deutsche, Tastenbelegung, X11, xorg

telmob commented on 2018-08-25 02:27 (UTC)

Is it just me or it asks to login every single time? Could this something in the install process? Fonts also don't adjust to high resolution monitors. They're really tiny.

telmob commented on 2018-08-17 11:10 (UTC) (edited on 2018-08-17 11:12 (UTC) by telmob)

For version 7.2:

  1. Download PacketTracer from your netacad account

  2. Run 'yaourt -S packettracer'. Don't try to finish until you follow next step.

  3. Place 'Packet Tracer 7.2 for Linux 64 bit.tar.gz' in /tmp/'aur_package_folder'

  4. Finish installing. Done.

serch037 commented on 2018-08-10 13:02 (UTC)

Version 7.2 is already available as of August 2018, see the top notice at: https://www.packettracernetwork.com/features/packettracer-72-newfeatures.html and also at https://www.netacad.com/group/offerings/packet-tracer/

runnytu commented on 2018-08-09 18:11 (UTC)

In the netacad web page there is still the 7.1 version, don't flag until version 7.2 it's available on the netacad page.

spacepunkcowboy commented on 2018-08-07 23:46 (UTC)

I installed icu52 and libpng12, but could not locate the sha512sum to install the packettracer aur. So I executed the install script from Cisco (using sudo) and it installed and works properly. Did not need the aur. I'm shocked.

SolarAquarion commented on 2018-08-07 09:48 (UTC)

Cisco has released 7.2 and can you include a .desktop

runnytu commented on 2018-06-27 19:42 (UTC)

pacaur is unmaintained since too many months ago, it's possible that doesn't interpret well some Pacman new implementation, change to another Pacman wrapper maintained and under development.

@altf4, the name is changed since 25/04/2018

altf4 commented on 2018-05-23 21:57 (UTC) (edited on 2018-05-23 21:57 (UTC) by altf4)

The latest version of packettracer has another name. So just change the name in the PKGBUILD and also don't forget to change the sha512sum of the packet, otherwise, it won't work

spacepunkcowboy commented on 2018-04-24 03:26 (UTC)

It appears Cisco is now compressing the archive, so the file extension is now ".tar.gz". I change the filename in the PKGBUILD, and it worked for me. Line you are looking for is: source_x86_64=('local://Packet Tracer 7.1.1 for Linux 64 bit.tar')

z3ntu commented on 2018-03-19 21:42 (UTC)

Well I had that problem before when I look at the comments; so again: uninstalling the "jdk" package solves the issue for some reason.

runnytu commented on 2018-03-15 19:43 (UTC)

@z3ntu, Try to install/update jre8-openjdk, jre8-openjdk-headless, java-runtime-common and java-environment-common packages, are the only requirements to run packettracer, try also this environment chek from cisco: http://skills.netacad.net/check/check.html

z3ntu commented on 2018-03-13 09:12 (UTC)

@runnytu I'm on qt5-base 5.10.1-5. Also 7.1-1 crashes but 7.0-4 works.

runnytu commented on 2018-03-12 20:56 (UTC)

@z3ntu, try to update all qt5 packages to last version 5.10, it seems a qt5 bug.

z3ntu commented on 2018-03-11 20:38 (UTC) (edited on 2018-03-11 20:38 (UTC) by z3ntu)

Followed the pinned comment and was able to successfully install it. Thanks :)

In the official netacad downloads page still appears 7.1 version, don't mark it out of date until is published officially on it.

runnytu commented on 2018-01-25 19:36 (UTC)

@z3ntu, It was already done, it's in the 80th line of the PKGBUILD.

z3ntu commented on 2018-01-25 13:54 (UTC)

@presianbg: I had probably the same error, uninstalling jdk from the AUR resolved the error..

runnytu commented on 2017-11-11 14:39 (UTC)

@hoobastank, for me it's working ok, I'm only in X64, maybe multilib it's causing issues, the error with the certificate it's not relevating.

I've successfully installed as @runnytu said, but user login screen isn't loading. There is only a white screen. It is same both on 7.1 and 7.0 version. It works without any problem with guest user but you know it's limited. Is there any solution?

# Help Files that are optinal uncomment to include them (55 MB) # cp -r ./help/* "${pkgdir}/usr/share/packettracer/help" This is not up to you to decide what part of package to exclude. All you have to do is maintain an AUR script which installs whole application just like developer designed it. It's developer responsibility to exclude it if it wants so, not yours.

runnytu commented on 2017-09-06 20:20 (UTC)

Here's how I successfully installed Packet Tracer 7.1 on my system. 1. Download "PacketTracer71_64bit_linux.tar.gz" from http://netacad.com 2. # yaourt -S packettracer (install all dependencies and wait till it puts out this error: ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build . ==> Restart building packettracer ? [y/N] [ DO NOT TYPE "Y" OR "N", LEAVE ALONE FOR NOW ] 3. Open new terminal and look for "packettracer" file by typing in: # sudo find / -name "packettracer" -print 2>/dev/null 4. Mine was located in this dir: "/tmp/yaourt-tmp-nickle/aur-packettracer/" 5. Now copy previously downloaded "PacketTracer71_64bit_linux.tar.gz" and paste into dir: # cp PacketTracer71_64bit_linux.tar.gz /tmp/yaourt-tmp-nickle/aur-packettracer/PacketTracer71_64bit_linux.tar.gz 6. Now return back to original terminal and type "Y" to continue install. Ignore errors towards the end about "cannot remove from /tmp.

runnytu commented on 2017-08-22 19:11 (UTC) (edited on 2017-08-22 19:13 (UTC) by runnytu)

To install packettracer follow this guidelines: 1. Download the snapshot from this AUR. 2. Tar -zxf the packettracer.tar.gz snapshot (it creates the dir packettracer/ with the PKGBUILD on it). 3. Download the latest packettracer tarball from your Netacad account and copy it into the packettracer/ dir. 4. Create the package with the command makepkg (it creates a packettracer.pkg.tar.xz). 5. Install the package with either makepkg -i or sudo pacman -U packettracer.pkg.tar.xz.

gccstr commented on 2017-08-22 16:05 (UTC)

Hello, i'm getting an error about the verification of the downloaded sources, is this version still reliable? anyone used it to do the tests? Thanks in advance.

runnytu commented on 2017-08-05 14:03 (UTC)

@MrSmith, Since the version 6.3-2 from 2016-06-20, installs in the directory /usr/share/packettracer/ to follow the arch guidelines.

MrSmith commented on 2017-08-04 17:56 (UTC) (edited on 2017-08-04 18:04 (UTC) by MrSmith)

Why does this new version install in the directory /usr/share/packettracer/ and no more in /opt/pt?

Hello, Bump to new version packettracer 7.1-1. Cisco discontinues the 32 bit linux version, only 64 bits version available.

Kanjelman commented on 2017-06-30 03:15 (UTC)

@Leamer, thank you so much! I followed your instructions step-by-step (though I used a newer version of packettracer compared to the one you referenced at the time of your posting). I was able to launch it successfully on the first try. As a total beginner to linux (currently using Manjaro xfce), this is a wonderful feeling. Many thanks again!

runnytu commented on 2017-05-25 19:07 (UTC)

Hello, Bump to new version packettracer 7.0-4.

daboka commented on 2017-05-20 10:38 (UTC)

works fine with openssl-1.0 1.0.2.k-4 in [testing], you should update to depend on it, when it hits [extra] as libopenssl-1.0-compat is orphaned

runnytu commented on 2017-05-09 19:14 (UTC)

@BluePeril, libopenssl-1.0-compat depending fixed with the same version to avoid all users to reinstall the package.

BluePeril commented on 2017-05-08 20:52 (UTC)

lib32-libopenssl-1.0-compat does not exist for i686

runnytu commented on 2017-05-06 20:52 (UTC)

@dkaylor, gcc-multilib depending removed with the same version to avoid all users to reinstall the package. @ingwia, there isn't an obligation to resolves the other users faults, nevertheless, it seems to be java problem, reinstall jdk8-openjdk, jre8-openjdk and jre8-openjdk-headless.

dkaylor commented on 2017-05-06 01:56 (UTC)

I am wondering why the lib32 stuff is needed for the x86_64 arch. Why is this still depending on gcc-multilib?

Hello, Bump to new version packettracer 7.0-3.

Leamer commented on 2017-05-04 15:54 (UTC)

Finally figured it out: (Here is the complete procedure) 1. Download the snapshot from this AUR 2. tar -zxf the packettracer.tar.gz snapshot (creates the dir packettracer/ with the PKGBUILD in it) 3. Download a packettracer7.0 tarball from your Netacad account and copy it into the dir above. 4. Package with the command $makepkg (creates a packettracer-7.0-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz pkg) 5. Install the package with either $maakepkg -i or $sudo pacman -U packettracer-7.0-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz 6. Download debians openssl-1.0.0 libraries from here (http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openssl/libssl1.0.0_1.0.1-4ubuntu5.39_amd64.deb) and extract 7. Once extracted, you will find the relevent libraries under the path (<dir>/data/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/) 8. Copy both files into packettracer's libraries installation location (/usr/share/packettracer/lib) 9. Edit the following line in the file /usr/bin/packettracer to match: (export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/share/packettracer/lib") 10. Input the command "packettracer" in your terminal. :)

Leamer commented on 2017-05-04 15:17 (UTC)

So, i downloaded the tar ball from my Netacad account, built it and installed the package. On terminal input command: 'packettracer', to launch the qt4 interface, i get this error /usr/share/packettracer/bin/PacketTracer7: /usr/share/packettracer/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: version `OPENSSL_1.0.0' not found (required by /usr/share/packettracer/bin/PacketTracer7) What is the workaround? anyone..

Leamer commented on 2017-05-04 12:42 (UTC)

Trying to download the tar-ball from this AUR. However, the links local://PacketTracer70_32bit_linux.tar.gz, local://PacketTracer70_64bit_linux.tar.gz do not point to any relevant package. Really need this tar-ball. Please update.

cbzha commented on 2017-05-02 01:03 (UTC)

xcMI2w, how can I do that?

runnytu commented on 2017-04-28 11:14 (UTC)

I'm on holidays until 4th of may, after that i update the package.

xcMI2w commented on 2017-04-27 20:45 (UTC)

The PKGBUILD needs an update and so do the scripts, since OpenSSL 1.1 is here. As a temp fix I imported the libcrypto.so.1.0.0 and libssl.so.1.0.0 files to /usr/share/packettracer/lib/ and that fixes the issue.

dantopa commented on 2017-04-27 05:01 (UTC)

Like daboka said, this works fine on x64 without lib32 deps. Also, I don't know how to launch from the icon launcher, I can only make it work from terminal first putting export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libcrypto-compat.so.1.0.0, but the icon launcher does nothing

daboka commented on 2017-04-26 21:04 (UTC)

Works fine for me without lib32-* deps too. Since OpenSSL 1.1 hit the repos libopenssl-1.0-compat (and probably openssl-1.0) is needed, with `export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libcrypto-compat.so.1.0.0` added to the packettracer script.

Krejzi commented on 2017-03-23 22:17 (UTC)

Are you really sure lib32-* stuff is needed on x86_64? All I see is two native 64 bit binaries. It even has its own Qt4/qtwebkit bundled (which helps a lot since qtwebkit is gone from repos).

dkaylor commented on 2017-03-20 03:01 (UTC)

@alex2244 You need to acquire the packettracer 7 binary from cisco first. For example, through a netacad account. It can also be found "elsewhere", just don't ask about that here. Once you have it, place it in the directory with the PKGBUILD and run makepkg.

commented on 2017-03-19 23:41 (UTC)

Can't install it. There are the fail message: ==> FEHLER: PacketTracer70_64bit_linux.tar.gz wurde nicht im build Verzeichnis gefunden und ist keine URL. ==> FAIL: PacketTracer70_64bit_linux.tar.gz are not in the build directory and is not an URL. Sorry this is bad translated by me, but my system is german. But whats the fail?

Eduardox18 commented on 2017-03-05 07:07 (UTC)

If you got Arch 64 bits system, you don't need multilib to use Packettracer. I just download the tar.gz from the oficial page and install. Good luck! (PacketTracer70_64bit)

runnytu commented on 2017-03-04 15:07 (UTC)

@ingwia, try to reinstall lib32-openssl, libcrypto.so it's in this package.

@ali.molaei, yes local, why you flag out of date? If you have some questions, read the comments first, and after make a new question. Yes local, you should have a free netacad account and download it by your self, packettracer is free to use not to redustribute

ali.molaei commented on 2016-12-04 20:08 (UTC)

local://PacketTracer70_64bit_linux.tar.gz is not understandable :| local??

runnytu commented on 2016-11-27 13:03 (UTC)

@RIscRIpt, this is because you atempted to install it at least one time before, and you have some files in the tmp dir you use, you need to remove all the package files from your tmp dir o reboot, and surely will installs it ok.

RIscRIpt commented on 2016-11-27 12:11 (UTC)

I couldn't install this package because of the error `bsdtar can't unlink existing object` until I've added noextract=(PacketTracer70_32bit_linux.tar.gz, PacketTracer70_64bit_linux.tar.gz) to the PKGBUILD.

Hello, Bump to new version packettracer 7.0-2.

Louis commented on 2016-09-23 12:06 (UTC)

To be able to build this I had to change "local\/PacketTracer7" to "local\/PacketTracer6" so the proper string would be replaced in the .desktop-file.

kuplerei commented on 2016-09-22 20:56 (UTC)

The latest download is not compatible with this package. You can use updpkgsums to fix it.

runnytu commented on 2016-08-23 20:06 (UTC)

@aissarmurad, your directory isn't the correct path, everyone may change it to any path, for example to make a kernel that isn't possible in /tmp because of limitations of space, could change in /home or any other path in pacman's config file, then there's nothing to fix, everyone must move the tar.gz to your own working directory.

aissarmurad commented on 2016-08-23 16:57 (UTC)

I managed to install after move the file 'PacketTracer70_64bit_linux.tar.gz' to '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-${USER}/aur-packettracer/' with 'sudo mv PacketTracer70_64bit_linux.tar.gz /tmp/yaourt-tmp-${USER}/aur-packettracer/' Please.. FIX the package to move tar.gz file in current work directory to correct path.

@runnytu, thank you so much. i've tried to figure out where to put this tar for more than 3 hours

runnytu commented on 2016-07-26 19:56 (UTC)

@vilko, in the directory where your system build the AUR packages, if you don't know where is, download the snapshot of this package, untar it and put the packettracer tar in this directory and then makepkg on it.

vilko commented on 2016-07-26 19:48 (UTC)

@runnytu, where exactly I should put packettracer tar? /tmp or /tmp/makepkg does not work for me

pystoi commented on 2016-07-26 13:55 (UTC)

@runnytu , thanks ^-^

runnytu commented on 2016-07-26 12:31 (UTC)

@pystoi, As i said some times before, packettracer is freeware but not free to redistribute, everybody should open an account to cisco netacad www.netacad.com for free and download the desired file for 32 or 64 bits and put them in the source directory in order to build succesfully the package.

pystoi commented on 2016-07-26 12:06 (UTC)

@runnytu , How to download PacketTracer70_64bit_linux.tar.gz . I can not understant :(

runnytu commented on 2016-07-25 22:51 (UTC)

@sudojar, you should download and put the packettracer tar in the build directory.

sudojar commented on 2016-07-25 22:26 (UTC)

runnytu commented on 2016-07-22 19:42 (UTC)

@r4_broadcast, I don't know what is the problem, in the package are both 32 & 64 bits with the differents dependencies for each archs, not is necessary to split.

r4_broadcast commented on 2016-07-22 17:30 (UTC) (edited on 2016-07-23 16:37 (UTC) by r4_broadcast)

Since 7.0, Cisco Packet Tracer comes with 32 bit and 64 bit versions. I think now there's a need to separate both, mainly because they don't have the same dependencies. I don't have the experience to maintain an entry to this awesome repo that is the AUR, but I think some one had to acknowledge this fact to the maintainers, so they take the decision to update packages according to the actual packages offered. Thank You and keep the great work...!!!

runnytu commented on 2016-06-29 19:48 (UTC)

@sebast331, These errors appears when you attempt to makepkg and fails, you need to clean the files extracted in the temp directory where pacman compiles the package or reboot, furthermore the desktop file is pointing to the right path.

sebast331 commented on 2016-06-28 19:44 (UTC) (edited on 2016-06-30 12:21 (UTC) by sebast331)

It seems the included .desktop file is still pointing to PacketTracer6. The paths should be changed to /usr/share/packettracer/* ------- Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop ------- [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Type=Application Exec=/usr/share/packettracer/packettracer Icon=/usr/share/packettracer/art/app.png Name=Cisco Packet Tracer Categories=Application;Network; MimeType=application/x-pkt;application/x-pka;application/x-pkz; --------------------- Also, dont know why, but I couldn't install using the AUR package. I had to manually "makepkg" then "sudo pacman -U packettracer-7.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz". Using the AUR package (through pacaur), I was getting a lot of those errors: PacketTracer70/saves/7.0/IoE_Devices/garage_door.pkt: Can't unlink already-existing object PacketTracer70/saves/7.0/IoE_Devices/old_car.pkt: Can't unlink already-existing object

@polo, for me working OK and login without issues. @z3ntu, I'll implement your changes with the same version to avoid users to reinstall the package.

Hello, Bump to new version packettracer 7.0. @TCGman it's correct, isn't possible put a source array in the PKGBUILD without it inside the package. Now it's mandatory to have a Networking Academy account and download the file and put in the source directory, it's free.

laurent.treguier commented on 2016-06-21 17:12 (UTC)

@runntyu in the PKGBUILD : source=( 'http://PacketTracer63_linux.tar.gz' 'packettracer' 'linguist' 'packettracer.sh') shouldn't it be 'PacketTracer63_linux.tar.gz' instead of 'http://PacketTracer63_linux.tar.gz' ?

enderst commented on 2016-06-19 19:29 (UTC) (edited on 2016-06-19 19:30 (UTC) by enderst)

Cisco has made Packet Tracer available to all for free: 1. Create a Networking Academy account - Free 2. Optional but advisable - enroll in Packet Tracer 101 - Free takes about 1hr to complete. Visit the Upstream URL for details. The sha512sum will not match with the version now available, please update.

commented on 2016-04-26 21:22 (UTC)

Er, installing to opt is disalowed, you just can put all in /usr/share/packettracer/ and add a script in /usr/bin to call the propper file with all the enviromnet variables and chill, that more clean and arch-guideliness complaint.

saucyfox commented on 2016-02-27 23:33 (UTC)

Okay, not trying to be an asshole, but there are two problems with this recent update: 1. Redistributing Packet Tracer in this manner clearly violates Cisco's EULA. Distribution by instructors is allowed in limited form (defined in their EULA) and this clearly doesn't meet that. See http://ix.io/oFx or /usr/share/licenses/packettracer/eula.txt if you already have it installed. 2. Archive.org is a charity, and it's pretty shitty to use it to distribute package updates. They have issues with bandwidth usage on a regular basis as it is, and I don't think it's right to use them for this purpose. If you're going to pirate software, at least have the decency to put your bandwidth where your mouth is like most torrent users do :P Distributing the PKGBUILD was perfectly fine, and I think that's what you should go back to. If someone is too incompetent to change the file path and update the checksums, then they shouldn't be installing AUR packages in the first place and should probably just switch to a platform that Cisco supports. Just to clarify, I don't think there's anything ethically wrong with redistributing freeware, but this is not what the AUR is for. And if you think I'm wrong, feel free to spin up a VPS and distribute it that way so Cisco has to bug you instead of archive.org if they have a problem with what you're doing.

So, I have uploaded the new version to archive.org and updated the PKGBUILD file: https://gist.github.com/z3ntu/f7eaf47c73d23bec430b EDIT: just launched the new version and got a fullscreen popup to sign me in (after that everything works fine). When clicking "Guest Login" you first have to wait 15 seconds. Then packet tracer starts and you are in a normal-looking environment (no idea what is disabled).

z3ntu commented on 2016-02-07 18:32 (UTC)

May I ask why gcc-multilib is a make dependency?

wget commented on 2016-01-18 17:00 (UTC)

@architect Maybe this is related. But AFAIK, when I passed by assessment last year I had to downgrade to 6.1 because inter VLAN routing was not working properly. In practise, the green light in the simulated devices were not properly lit. Maybe you found the solution to my problem too. As I don't have access to the software for now and will require it again in a few months, could you test if inter VLAN routing is now working properly with your changes? Thanks again!

Louis commented on 2016-01-14 10:22 (UTC)

For this check to be passed: https://assessment.netacad.net/check/check.html I needed the following: 1. Installing icedtea-web (should be added as optdepends w/ explanation 2. Adding /opt/pt/bin to $PATH which I did in /etc/profile (should be done in PKGBUILD)

architect commented on 2016-01-08 18:47 (UTC) (edited on 2016-01-08 18:47 (UTC) by architect)

This installed fine for me, but within the program none of the interfaces would ever light up green when they were enabled. I got it to work by adding the pushd and popd lines to the startup script at /opt/pt/packettracer export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/pt/lib" pushd "/opt/pt/bin" >/dev/null exec /opt/pt/bin/PacketTracer6 "$@" >/dev/null 2>&1 popd >/dev/null

@runnytu, The test works flawlessly now. Many thanks !

runnytu commented on 2015-11-12 20:27 (UTC)

@TCGman, Updated with the environment variable with the same version number to avoid other users to update.

laurent.treguier commented on 2015-11-12 18:01 (UTC)

@runnytu, yes, packettracer works ok when launched manually (thank you for that by the way). But when doing Cisco exams sometimes it requires packettracer to be launched from the browser. This is why the check exists... It will probably not detect packet tracer during an exam, that is the problem I am thinking about

runnytu commented on 2015-11-12 13:21 (UTC)

@TCGman, Yes, the test doesn't work because only searches this specific variables, in the other side packettracer works ok.

laurent.treguier commented on 2015-11-12 12:26 (UTC) (edited on 2015-11-12 12:33 (UTC) by laurent.treguier)

@runnytu, that's weird because if I don't set this variable then the test fails to locate packettracer : ERROR -- Your current environment variables don't allow us to find a candidate Packet Tracer installation directory. You may identify the proper Packet Tracer installation directory by setting the value of one of these operating system environment variables: PTHOME,PT_HOME,PT10HOME,PT9HOME,PT8HOME,PT7HOME,PT6HOME,PT5HOME,PT_LAUNCH_DIR,PTDIR; or by adding Packet Tracer's "bin" subdirectory to your PATH environment variable.

runnytu commented on 2015-11-11 20:16 (UTC)

@TCGman, It's not necessary because in PKGBUILD Symlinked /opt/pt to /usr/bin.

laurent.treguier commented on 2015-11-11 19:42 (UTC)

Would it be possible to add to the PKGBUILD echo "export PT_HOME=/opt/pt" in /etc/profile.d/pt.sh for example ? There is a need for such a variable according to the Cisco Packet Tracer environment checker (https://assessment.netacad.net/check/check.html)

runnytu commented on 2015-11-11 19:05 (UTC)

@Midas, download the snapshot from here, it's all inside.

Midas commented on 2015-11-10 21:51 (UTC)

I am unable to find the PKGBUILD **inside** the tarball, as mentioned on the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PacketTracer#64-bit_systems " You will need to have access to the file Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 for Linux (with tutorials) to continue with the installation.

Louis commented on 2015-09-10 16:30 (UTC)

Why don't use archive.org as a proper source https://archive.org/details/Packettracer? I guess it had been taken down if Cisco had problems with people downloading it without registration.

Please,note that the use of [ "$CARCH" = "x86_64" ] and [ $CARCH = i686 ] for setting dependencies is deprecated and you should use instead the variables depends_i686 and depends_x86_64: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#depends

@rvu95, Packet Tracer is proprietary and is only supposed to be available to Netacad students. Therefore, you'll have to grab the source tarball yourself.

hexchain commented on 2015-06-21 03:52 (UTC)

Uncomment the "export" line in /usr/bin/pt to use Qt libraries shipped with PacketTracer to avoid crash without downgrading system package. Maintainer, would you mind modifying the source?

nhasian commented on 2015-06-06 21:10 (UTC)

Cisco PacketTracer fails to load and results in a segmentation fault when using the latest lib32-qt4-4.8.7-2. Downgrading to lib32-qt4-4.8.7-1 resolves the issue.

schivmeister commented on 2014-09-11 12:15 (UTC)

This warning goes out to everyone watching this page, including offenders atyus, wget and BrunoPT: This PKGBUILD does not include a source URL for a reason -- the source file is not freely redistributable. Although the program is free for students to use, it is only authorized for students of Cisco's Academy partners. You must be taking or have taken a recognized Academy class such as Exploration or Discovery (short courses offered by third-party training partners may not qualify), and need to have created or be given (by your instructor) an account at the Academy's website. You then download the file via their website and put it where this PKGBUILD is in order to build the package. TL;DR: Redistribution of Packet Tracer is illegal, and we do not allow sharing links to non-redistributable files. The AUR is not a place for sharing warez. I have deleted all such links.

Just an FYI, this pkgbuild works well even with the "no tutorials" version of Packet Tracer. To get it working, simply download the "no tutorials" installation file (PacketTracer601_setup_linux.gz), name it "Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 for Linux (with tutorials)" and change the MD5 to the correct hash. ;)

weirddan455 commented on 2012-04-19 16:08 (UTC)

Nevermind I fixed the problem. It needs this libpng12 package from AUR: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=34264 That's the lib32 one for 64 bit systems. Grab the regular libpng12 if you're on 32 bit.

weirddan455 commented on 2012-04-19 14:39 (UTC)

It seems to be broken. After installing a bunch of dependecies manually after installing (why weren't they listed as dependecies beforehand?), editing the PKGBUILD file to change libpng12 to libpng, and finally symlinking libpng12 to libpng I get this. /opt/pt/bin/PacketTracer5: /usr/lib32/libpng12.so.0: version `PNG12_0' not found (required by /opt/pt/lib/libQtGui.so.4)

pyther commented on 2012-03-23 23:59 (UTC)

The required dependency is based on the CARCH and therefore is not listed. The new version shouldn't as there are no api changes. However, I have not tested it.

commented on 2012-03-23 20:59 (UTC)

How come libpng12 is no longer mentioned under the Package Details|Dependencies? Also does the new version of libpng12 affect packettracer?

Uh, well, sorry for this mistake.

You are using an older version. You need to go to the pt download page and download the latest. The link in the PkGBUILD is out of date, but as long as you have an account it should not be hard to find.

Downloaded (legally) and again tried to make package but still without positive result. Then I fount that in PKGBUILD there is: PacketTracer533_Generic_Fedora.tar.gz but I have: PacketTracer53_Fedora.tar.gz (a new version?) I've made new md5sum and successfully made package :)

Find PacketTracer53_Fedora.tar.gz through internet and place it in the same folder with the PKGBUILD. In PKGBUILD there is a line saying # Requires Netacad Username/Password to download # http://cisco.netacad.net/cnams/resourcewindow/noncurr/downloadTools/app_files/PacketTracer53_Fedora.tar.gz if you don't owe an account you can't use that link.

I can't install it. It says that PacketTracer53_Fedora.tar.gz is not an URL.

@mynis01, I emailed you. In short, I dunno what IPC and have never taken a SBA before. Without a test (SBA) file, I'm afraid there is much I can do.

mynis01 commented on 2012-03-03 22:47 (UTC)

Everything is working well except the ptaplayer plugin (used for taking practice SBAs). I can run the plugin manually if you use a file manager and go to /opt/pt/extensions/ptaplayer. If I attempt to open the test from a web browser I get "Message ID: XP-ERR-010". I also noticed that when I run the Cisco Packet Tracer Skills Assessment Environment Checker, it detects that packet tracer is installed to /opt/pt, and says that the IPC ports are available, but is unable to detect what version of packet tracer is installed.

Isn't there some Qt that can be used to get a good result with this? Not sure if anything there can apply to Arch: http://sonniesedge.co.uk/2010/02/03/fuckin-ugly-fonts-on-ubuntu-version-of-packet-tracer/

pyther commented on 2012-02-13 13:47 (UTC)

Fixed. I had was checking for x86 instead of i686. doh!

commented on 2012-02-13 00:08 (UTC)

I think you should add libpng12 as a dependency, because on my fresh-install arch, it made perfectly the package but packettracer could't start complaining about libpng12 not found. libpng is another AUR package. B.R.

Thanks for updating!

I don't know if this is pacman4 related, but I had to remove the () in "install=(pt.install)" in order to build. Otherwise it would complain with ==> ERROR: install file ((pt.install)) does not exist.

commented on 2011-09-25 15:26 (UTC)

Hi PMedia Thank you so much. You were really helpful. I'd done all the steps but building the package with makepkg. I somehow assumed that pacman or yaourt would do it once I had all the files locally, but Iwas wrong. So much to learn. Thanks for helping in the process.

commented on 2011-09-25 14:56 (UTC)

Greetings, asynkronos. Welcome to the wonderful world of archlinux. Requirements: You should have installed the package group base-devel before (pacman -S base-devel) 1. download PacketTracer532_Generic_Fedora.tar.gz - it seems you did that already 2. download https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pa/packettracer/packettracer.tar.gz: # wget https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pa/packettracer/packettracer.tar.gz 3. extract packettracer.tar.gz and go into that directory # tar -xzf packettracer.tar.gz # cd packetracer 4. put PacketTracer532_Generic_Fedora.tar.gz into that directory 5. run makepkg as a normal user # makepkg 6. The Package is now build and you could install it for your platform (as root): # pacman -U packettracer-5.3.2-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz or # pacman -U packettracer-5.3.2-2-amd64.pkg.tar.xz 7. Done. Feel free to ask any further questions.

Hi everyone and please forgive my ignorance I'm new to Arch, pacman and yaourt (the one I'm using for AUR). I'm doing a CCNA course and I want packet tracer on my Arch box. I got the Fedora package from the website. Would anyone care to explain in a more or less detailed way how I need to proceed to get it installed? Every step if possible, I know most of you would find it easy/simple but obviously I'm not doing something right. So any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

pyther commented on 2011-09-05 18:19 (UTC)

I don't believe that lib32-qt is required since we are using the qt version that ships with PT.

commented on 2011-07-11 08:46 (UTC)

CARCH = i686 is not covered. (And "x86" is probably useless.)

commented on 2011-06-20 15:08 (UTC)

The cpu usage is a bit higher with some simulations with this build (~25%) which makes command line very laggy on the devices in the simulation. Any reason why?

Please don't distribute links to illegal versions of packettracer.

Thank you arcx990, activities do really work know. At last, I don't have any more problems with PT :)

arcxyz commented on 2011-03-01 19:03 (UTC)

Activities work fine now. Update QT to the new version (4.7.2-1) ;)

commented on 2011-02-27 21:48 (UTC)

Thanks for the package. libpng12 should be added as dependency. I had to install it, before it started working. It works if I start it without activity, but I too have freezes opening activities.

With latest version I can't open any activity files from Cisco Netacad. The program attempts to open the .pka file but it freezes. The output: http://aur.pastebin.com/9Kz6XpK6

rascas commented on 2011-02-15 00:11 (UTC)

What changes did you made in 20 Dec? Im asking because the version that i have installed works fine with system qt and its the same pt 5.3.1. Thanks

jordidg commented on 2011-01-12 13:05 (UTC)

laasonen: You should manually download that file from the cisco site

laasonen commented on 2011-01-12 13:03 (UTC)

PacketTracer531_Fedora.tar.gz is missing.

I got a checksum error: ==> Validating source files with md5sums... PacketTracer531_Fedora.tar.gz ... FAILED packettracer ... Passed linguist ... Passed ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! I have downloaded packettracer and the PKG-build again, but the problem stays.

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-18 17:44 (UTC)

I have a problem with all versions of PT 5.3(1). But 5.2 works fine, but there is no possibility ExApp, which I need for now.

jordidg commented on 2010-12-18 17:19 (UTC)

You can always revert to the previous version ( http://aur.pastebin.com/KCViLzVE ). If anyone else has issues with the current PKGBUILD, leave a comment and I'll revert the changes.

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-18 15:50 (UTC)

Anyway, when opening files. pkt and. pka PacketTracket has friezes, so it's impossible to work. http://img843.imageshack.us/img843/3235/bigsize1.png

jordidg commented on 2010-12-18 15:28 (UTC)

Try uninstalling packettracer, and manually removing any traces you still find of packettracer on your system (rm -r /opt/pt /usr/bin/packettracer) normally these files shouldn't exist anymore after you removed the package so if they do, i think we found the culprit of your problems :) Afterwards you can reinstall this package.

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-18 15:15 (UTC)

Error: No package does not contain /usr/bin/packettracer

jordidg commented on 2010-12-18 15:09 (UTC)

What does pacman -Qo packettracer give?

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-18 15:06 (UTC)

No, I did not do anything. Only install packettracer of AUR

jordidg commented on 2010-12-18 14:57 (UTC)

Did you manually add a symlink for packettracer or something? Cause this package only places a symlink called pt in /usr/bin, there shouldn't be a binary called packettracer in your PATH

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-18 13:08 (UTC)

Here's the output after running (with an attempt to open file): http://dpaste.com/288012/ And LD_LIBRARY_PATH: http://dpaste.com/288013/

jordidg commented on 2010-12-18 12:32 (UTC)

And the output of LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/pt/lib" ldd /opt/pt/bin/PacketTracer5 would be nice as well.

jordidg commented on 2010-12-18 11:15 (UTC)

Hmm thats exactly the same as on my system. Could you run packettracer in a terminal and post the output?

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-18 08:53 (UTC)

Are you running 64bit? Or 32? And could you please post the output of pacman -Ql packettracer | grep so$

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-17 19:54 (UTC)

Of course, I've tried and your PKGUILD of AUR - with exactly the same problem.

jordidg commented on 2010-12-17 15:43 (UTC)

Actually I was talking about the pkgrel (the last number in the version string). It sounds like you're running 5.3.1-1 instead of 5.3.1-2. It's the same binary from cisco, but a different PKGBUILD, so that the issues you're talking about are resolved. You should try rebuilding the package.

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-17 14:24 (UTC)

I'm using "Packet Tracer v5.3.1 Application + Tutorial Generic Fedora" from the official site cisco.netacad.net

jordidg commented on 2010-12-16 19:22 (UTC)

Are you sure you're running 5.3.1-2? Because that version is already using system qt for fonts and stuff, in combination with the bundled qt so you can still save your work.

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-16 19:09 (UTC)

I have no fonts in the program. But if /opt/pt/packettracer comment line: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$PTDIR/lib PT does not use its own, but uses the system libraries. After that, the fonts are smooth and apply a systemic theme. But when trying to open any saved work PT for a long time drawn the window, so it is impossible to work. I suspect the incompatibility of versions of Qt.

jordidg commented on 2010-12-02 11:29 (UTC)

Packettracer now uses system Qt whenever possible, so the font problem is fixed. It still uses the bundled libQtXml to prevent crashing when saving.

rascas commented on 2010-12-02 11:26 (UTC)

What changes where done in 01 Dec?

pyther commented on 2010-10-06 12:51 (UTC)

You need to be a member of the Cisco Network Academy. If you are not, than you are not able to legally use this software.

commented on 2010-10-06 09:55 (UTC)

PacketTracer531_Fedora.tar.gz not found. Please let me know where I can download it.

pyther commented on 2010-09-06 19:27 (UTC)

Updated to 5.3.1. Note: you must have the Tahoma font installed otherwise the menu will be unreadable. Alternatively, blindly navigate to Options (3rd Item) -> Preferences (First Item) -> Font (Tab) -> File Menu and select a different font. Also, since I am no longer using PT on a regular basis I will orphan this package.

a172 commented on 2010-08-08 01:45 (UTC)

I used the following for a PKGBUILD, and it worked for me. Note that I also changed the dependencies. It would compile, but not run without qt and pcre (32bit). http://aur.pastebin.com/Mkj6BpHm

This is contained in the PKGBUILD: # Requires Netacad Username/Password to download # http://cisco.netacad.net/cnams/resourcewindow/noncurr/downloadTools/app_files/PacketTracer53_Fedora.tar.gz So you must manually download packettracer and put it in the directory. Since the download requires a netacad username/password there is no easy to automate this process.

Updated to 5.3. libpng12 is now needed as a depend. This is out my control, thanks static blob garbage!

pyther commented on 2010-04-02 13:15 (UTC)

How are starting packettracer? If you are using /opt/pt/bin/PacketTracer5 then the segfaults are normal as there is an issue between packet tracer and new versions of qt. However, if you use /opt/pt/packettracer (shell script) or /usr/bin/pt (symlink to shell script) you should not get segfaults as it will use the static qt libraries that get shipped with packet tracer.

unexist commented on 2010-04-02 12:38 (UTC)

Hm, is a segfault on attempting to save normal?

pyther commented on 2010-03-24 04:01 (UTC)

Minor update... mimetype icons now show up for pka, pkt, pkz files.
