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.

Hi, @ElNinijo, the problem is, the script is not a bash script. Here what I understood about what the script does: export PT7HOME (/opt/packettracer) as environnement variable. Depending on the version of Qt (QT_VERSION > QT_VERSION_CHECK(5,5,0)), export QT_AUTO_SCALE_FACTOR (= 1) if version of Qt is superior to 5.5, else export QT_DEVICE_PIXEL_AUTO (= auto). @ruunyti, how did you test this script ? Why do we need it ? I deleted it, and packettracer is working fine without it (only got one bug yet). And is it really a good idea to put this script in profile.d if it is only needed to packettracer? (meaning it will be sourced for every instances of Bash).

-bash: /etc/profile.d/packettracer.sh: line 4: syntax error near unexpected token (' -bash: /etc/profile.d/packettracer.sh: line 4:if QT_VERSION > QT_VERSION_CHECK(5, 5, 0)'

after update to the newest version i receive these info, where is porblem?

@horaciohs, Yes, it's necessary, and no errors are shown on my terminal or log.

Nothing is being compiled anywhere. Speaking of which, shouldn't this really be a -bin package?

bkb commented on 2020-05-26 15:32

Neither make it automatic, in both case you have to manually compile

@bkb: you can change the source= yourself if you want to download the binaries from a non-official location. Or, as you say, just install it from Cisco and lose all the advantages a package manager gives you.

bkb commented on 2020-05-26 13:13

The principle of a package manager is to automatize updates, if you didn't give any way to automatize this installation it's basically useless, it's just installing from Cisco with extra steps

packettracer 7.3.0-5 : as CodingKoopa said, every terminal are showing in beginning: bash: ./packettracer.sh: line 4: syntax error near unexpected token (' bash: ./packettracer.sh: line 4:if QT_VERSION > QT_VERSION_CHECK(5, 5, 0)'

Is /etc/profile.d/packettracer.sh necessary ?

runnytu commented on 2020-05-24 12:41

All fixed.
