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

@altf4, the name is changed since 25/04/2018

The latest version of packettracer has another name. So just change the name in the PKGBUILD and also don't forget to change the sha512sum of the packet, otherwise, it won't work

It appears Cisco is now compressing the archive, so the file extension is now ".tar.gz". I change the filename in the PKGBUILD, and it worked for me. Line you are looking for is: source_x86_64=('local://Packet Tracer 7.1.1 for Linux 64 bit.tar')

Well I had that problem before when I look at the comments; so again: uninstalling the "jdk" package solves the issue for some reason.

@z3ntu, Try to install/update jre8-openjdk, jre8-openjdk-headless, java-runtime-common and java-environment-common packages, are the only requirements to run packettracer, try also this environment chek from cisco: http://skills.netacad.net/check/check.html

@runnytu I'm on qt5-base 5.10.1-5. Also 7.1-1 crashes but 7.0-4 works.

@z3ntu, try to update all qt5 packages to last version 5.10, it seems a qt5 bug.

Packet tracer crashes when I open it (the login window appears):

Followed the pinned comment and was able to successfully install it. Thanks :)

In the official netacad downloads page still appears 7.1 version, don't mark it out of date until is published officially on it.
