New versions of packettracer 7.2.2 and above are autoinstallables via run file, download it from netacad webpage and run it, you don't need this package.

To install packettracer 7.2.1 and lower, 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.

Thanks for the package. libpng12 should be added as dependency. I had to install it, before it started working.

It works if I start it without activity, but I too have freezes opening activities.

With latest version I can't open any activity files from Cisco Netacad. The program attempts to open the .pka file but it freezes. The output:

I got a checksum error:

==> Validating source files with md5sums...
PacketTracer531_Fedora.tar.gz ... FAILED
packettracer ... Passed
linguist ... Passed
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

I have downloaded packettracer and the PKG-build again, but the problem stays.

I have a problem with all versions of PT 5.3(1). But 5.2 works fine, but there is no possibility ExApp, which I need for now.
