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.

@fatOwl, the same way used to install, follow the pinned comment, with the new version of packettracer and AUR tarball.

Hi, maybe this is a dumb question, but I don't know how to upgrade the package. I installed it using the pinned comment, but don't know how to proceed with the upgrade

Thanks to runnytu, I downloaded 7.2.2 after spending all afternoon struggling with 7.3 (manually trying to extract and locate files and folders, update libraries and download debian utilities, finally coming here.) I guess everyone learns to check comments here before doing all of that/ TIL...

I got it! Thanks, had to put the .deb file not the tarball in the packettracer folder, sorry I'm still new to this!

Then pacman -U the created tarball! It works! ^~^

@Volteos, You should follow the instructions of the pinned comment.

Getting error on my AUR helper, date is 3-08-2020,

ERROR: PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

I don't know how to fix this.

@riazufila, fix it, and @Rowisi, also remove java from dependencies.

Is it just me, or packettracer can't be executed anywhere from the terminal? I have to cd to /opt/packettracer to use it.

@Rowisi, Java is needed to serve: /opt/packettracer/extensions/ptaplayer/ptaplayer-12.009.jar, I don't use PTA and can't confirm if without java PTA is still working ok or not, if someone can confirm that PTA is working without java I remove Java from dependencies.
