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.

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.

i get these warnings while installing:

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?:

Fix directory permissions
find "$pkgdir" -type d -exec chmod -v 0755 {} \;

@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.

"I believe that PKGBUILDs must be non-interactive in order to be AUR compliant."

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

@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 :

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.
