New versions of packettracer are autoinstallables via run file, download it from netacad webpage and run it.

You need to be a member of the Cisco Network Academy. If you are not, than you are not able to legally use this software.

PacketTracer531_Fedora.tar.gz not found. Please let me know where I can download it.

Updated to 5.3.1.
Note: you must have the Tahoma font installed otherwise the menu will be unreadable. Alternatively, blindly navigate to Options (3rd Item) -> Preferences (First Item) -> Font (Tab) -> File Menu and select a different font.

Also, since I am no longer using PT on a regular basis I will orphan this package.

I attempted to do a version bump, however, when using the static libraries provided in the package (PT) all of the menu text is goofy. It seems like using the lib32-qt libraries work.

However, since I'm in CCNP courses that do not support PacketTracer and I do not have much of I need for PT I will orphan this package.

I used the following for a PKGBUILD, and it worked for me. Note that I also changed the dependencies. It would compile, but not run without qt and pcre (32bit).

@ vando

no, change
line 30: mkdir -p ${pkgdir}/opt/pt/{art,backgrounds,bin,extensions,help,LANGUAGES,lib,saves,Sounds,templates}
to : mkdir -p ${pkgdir}/opt/pt/{art,backgrounds,bin,extensions,help,LANGUAGES,lib,saves,sounds,templates}

or

change s to S in line 30,

do one of this for installing succesfully , and i dont know which dir the packettracer use, ..../Sound or ..../sound.

==> Starting build()...
cp: target `/home/vando/Packages/Source/packettracer/pkg/opt/pt/sounds' is not a directory
Aborting...

and also should be it in line 39 (caps "S" in "sounds")
