Cannot Run Packet Tracer 7.2

Post by henrym »

I want to install Packet Tracer on my Mint laptop because I will take a Cisco class in the Fall. I downloaded Packet Tracer 7.2, extracted it, and ran the install. Now how do I run it?

henrym:

Have you tried the command "packettracer" in your terminal?

For example
me@lamko-223 ~ $ packkettracer

Should you run into any additional issues (libs, etc.) see this:

Hope This Helps

GOOD LUCK!!!

Yes, I did. When I type ls, It looks like packettracer is not executable. Chmod does not help.

What does "it looks like packettracer is not executable" specifically mean? What messages show up?

I can't vouch for how current this is but it's worth a look:
