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.

Are you running 64bit? Or 32?
And could you please post the output of
pacman -Ql packettracer | grep so$

Of course, I've tried and your PKGUILD of AUR - with exactly the same problem.

Actually I was talking about the pkgrel (the last number in the version string). It sounds like you're running 5.3.1-1 instead of 5.3.1-2.
It's the same binary from cisco, but a different PKGBUILD, so that the issues you're talking about are resolved.
You should try rebuilding the package.

I'm using "Packet Tracer v5.3.1 Application + Tutorial Generic Fedora" from the official site cisco.netacad.net

Are you sure you're running 5.3.1-2?
Because that version is already using system qt for fonts and stuff, in combination with the bundled qt so you can still save your work.

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-16 19:09

I have no fonts in the program. But if /opt/pt/packettracer comment line:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$PTDIR/lib

PT does not use its own, but uses the system libraries. After that, the fonts are smooth and apply a systemic theme. But when trying to open any saved work PT for a long time drawn the window, so it is impossible to work. I suspect the incompatibility of versions of Qt.

Packettracer now uses system Qt whenever possible, so the font problem is fixed.
It still uses the bundled libQtXml to prevent crashing when saving.
