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.

Thank you very much for this pkgbuild!! working great for me. I did not try sound (I don't know what sound would be used for?)

@kismet010, do you have a cisco netacad account? Just download the file yourself and unzip the package tarball. build it with makepkg.

I can't hear the sound in packettracer even after I turned on 'Play sound' in Preference. I have Pulseaudio and Alsa installed on xfce4. Does anyone have the same problem?

Yaourt say it doesn't find .tar.gz in compilation directory, and it's not an URL

==> ERROR: PacketTracer533_Generic_Fedora.tar.gz no fue encontrado en el directorio de compilación, y no es una URL.
==> ERROR: Makepkg no ha podido compilar packettracer.

Nevermind I fixed the problem. It needs this libpng12 package from AUR:

That's the lib32 one for 64 bit systems. Grab the regular libpng12 if you're on 32 bit.

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/ version `PNG12_0' not found (required by /opt/pt/lib/

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.

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.
