Hi, I am trying to install Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 on Fedora 19 and having no joy whatsoever.
The cisco website that I logged into (netacad) to get the software let me choose between a copy for "linux" and a copy for ubuntu and with the little knowledge I have of linux I decided that the ubuntu one was no good as of rpm vs deb.
Now there is nothing executable (right phrase? only just switched from windows) in the folder that contains many files and subfolders including a file called 'install' but I just can't work out what to do.
I then gave up and went on this ---> http://shuttertux.wordpress.com/2013/09/25/install-cisco-packet-tracer-under-linux/
which had a file to download and some code examples that should work, which don't. A chmod command with no responses and and an execute command also no response.
On a ubuntu forum someone posted a .bin file, and this was the closest I got, as I managed to get all the way to the license agreement in the terminal but then it immediately fails with error dpkg command not found. I guess dpkg is a .deb based command?
Please can anyone help, I really need this software for my CCNA course.
I get the feeling from my research that I could get it on a Ubuntu variant quite easily however after trying to install Mint with a catastrophic failure (nothing I did, I don't think, just a failed install if you beleive me
) I am put off trying new distro's for now and as I have fedora running fairly well I want to keep it how it is at the moment.
I can give more information if you want, might even let you 'see' what I downloaded from Cisco in the first place.
