The easy way
You can just download the generic version (when you are logged in) and install it like any other program.
Or you can use AUR package [packettracer https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=24003]
The hard (old) way
PacketTracer is an application from Cisco that allows network simulations and training using Cisco/Linksys products (like routers/switches/wireless hardware).
I used to run it under Wine but the Linux version is now available; unfortunately it is only for Ubuntu/Debian and Fedora/Red Hat.
But of course it can be installed on Arch (what can't you do with Arch? :)) with a little work.
- Run the installer. While it displays the license agreement, DO NOT DO ANYTHING! Go to another terminal and run
find /tmp -iname *.deb
- Grab the .deb file, put it somewhere (like Template:Filename) and issue this command:
bsdtar -xf PacketTracer-5.0-u.i386.deb data.tar.gz
- Decompress the data.tar.gz file, it will create a folder Template:Filename within the currently directory, and within Template:Filename there is a folder 'PacketTracer5'. Move it to Template:Filename.
- To run:
