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' '' 'local://Packet Tracer 7.2.1 for Linux 64 bit.tar.gz')

the way that works: source=('packettracer' 'linguist' '' '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.

@FFY00, Changed.

You should also drop all the _x86_64 stuff, there's no other architecture available.

Hello, please fix the package as I stated bellow or I'll orphan it.

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


It falls under "Large self-contained packages".

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