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.

Only problem is that it does not like spaces in paths. Probably need to quote out the following lines in the package build.

chown -R 0:0 ${pkgdir}
mv ${pkgdir}/opt/pt/ ${pkgdir}/opt/packettracer/
mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/"

Please add qt5-script as a dependency.

arcman's solution prints a lot of jargon making each directory of that permission which is not needed. A more elegant solution is needed to the problem. runnytu, can you incorporate the changes suggested in the last two comments ASAP??

baioc commented on 2021-04-22 19:30

In KDE the installation fails at the very last step with gtk-update-icon-cache: No theme index file.
This can be fixed by adding the --ignore-theme-index flag to the gtk-update-icon-cache command in packettracer.install and then updating that file's sha512sum in the PKGBUILD.

the program still installs and opens fine(i haven't really used it yet). maybe this line should be added at the end of the PKGBUILD?:

Fix directory permissions
find "$pkgdir" -type d -exec chmod -v 0755 {} \;

@con-fused follow instructions from @runnytu and download the deb file from netacad.com once you create an account with Cisco.

Also, use the Markdown syntax. A "```" (without quotes) makes it a code and preserves the formatting of command output.

"I believe that PKGBUILDs must be non-interactive in order to be AUR compliant."

Than its pretty much isnt non interactive, since you have to act to do something for it to work.
