Helper Script for installing Packet-Tracer on a Non-Deb-System.

Initial Idea:

Idea and commands from https://grupp-web.de and further posts on this site. I just merged the whole thing into one script.

Usage:

  • Download this Script or clone the repo to your computer
  • Make the Script executable: chmod +x pt8-installer.sh
  • Get PacketTracer8-Installation-File from your https://netacad.com account
  • run this skript as root with the path to the PT-File. e. g.:
    sudo ./pt8-installer.sh CiscoPacketTracer_810_Ubuntu_64bit.deb

The script is tested on the following distributions:

  • Arch Linux (KDE)
  • Manjaro Linux (KDE)
  • Fedora 33 (Gnome)

Note

On Arch-Linux or Arch-Derivates (Manjaro, ArcoLinux, ...) you can also install packettracer from the AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/packettracer/
