Hi,

Anyone can help me with this error? I can't install packettracer. Thank you!

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

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.

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.

@runnytu Hmm, it's strange...

runnytu commented on 2019-04-04 16:41

@Barazok, in my system, packettracert it still working without issues without qt5-x11extras package installed.

Barazok commented on 2019-04-02 07:25

@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.
