Having trouble installing Cisco's PacketTracer? I sure did.

installing cisco's packet tracker application on linux (especially debian based distributions) is apparently sometimes not as easy as it seems ....

Hi.

I have Linux Mint 18.2 64 bits. I have installed packet tracer 7.1 following the instructions of cisco in / opt / pt / but when I started it I got an interface with some icons and a huge resolution.


- I tried to change the configuration of QT_DEVICE_PIXEL_RATIO to 0.1 and 2 but there is no change. I guess it is some configuration of qt but I do not give with the key.
- I have executed the files set_petnv and set_qtenv
- I do not see that I lack libraries:

Does anyone know how to solve it?

i am on linux mint 18.3 sylvia (64bit xfce)
this worked for me after installing the current 7.1.1 version of packet tracer

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libqt5multimedia5 libqt5scripttools5 libqt5script5
sudo mv /opt/pt/lib /opt/pt/lib.bak
sudo mkdir /opt/pt/lib
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt* /opt/pt/lib
the final command creating the symlink is different for 32bit architechture systems:

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libQt* /opt/pt/lib

in the spirit of providing good documentation, the following is the meticulously thorough "long story long"
(also for search engines so others might be able to find this fix)
  • my packet tracer wouldn't even open
    it took me a while to figure out why
    the install went easy following the instructions running a couple scripts
    i wondered why a seemingly smooth install without any errors or warnings resulted in a desktop link that does nothing
    so i began to dig a bit deeper using the bash shell terminal
    the packettracer cli script would run and output "Starting Packet Tracer 7.1.1" to the command line but nothing would happen AND the prompt
    i went straight to the PacketTracer7 file that is called by the .desktop link... no response to that either
    BUT there was some error output:

Code: Select all

 ~/Desktop $ sudo ./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop 
./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: 1: ./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: [Desktop: not found
./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: 5: ./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: %F: not found
./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: 8: ./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: Packet: not found
./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: 9: ./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: Network: not found
./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: 11: ./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: application/x-pka: not found
./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: 11: ./Cisco-PacketTracer.desktop: application/x-pkz: not found
  • after a little bit of googling the qt multimedia package seemed like it might be my silver bullet but it wasn't

Code: Select all

$ sudo ./PacketTracer7 
./PacketTracer7: error while loading shared libraries: libQt5Script.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
  • that led me to the other two packages and file and folder edits
    hat tip to Jens on stack overflow for the lib folder maneuver
    only final touch to my solution was to get the proper 64bit gnu libQt folder
