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.

install fails by default with:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
packettracer: /opt/packettracer/bin/libdouble-conversion.so.1 exists in filesystem
packettracer: /usr/bin/packettracer exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
==> WARNING: Failed to install built package(s).

after removing previous installation it did fine.

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.

The eternal was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

(this package has more than 10 years)

@runnytu: the install file changed, so pkgrel needs to be incremented: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#pkgrel

@lberrymage, Done with the same version to avoid users to update.

For anyone who's not using a traditional window manager and is having trouble installing, make sure you have qt5-base installed.

@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

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.
