I have download Packet Tracer 7.1.1 64-bit (which is for Ubuntu 14.04). I run the script installer and all works great.

The problem is that it doesn't start. After a check with ldd it seems that it misses I can't find this specific library in official repos.

I checked my system and it is installed by Anaconda Python 3, so i copied it. If i run packettracer from terminal nothing happens nor i get any log in journal. If i run it from /opt/pt/bin where is installed with ./PacketTracer7 i get seg fault. Running a check with ldd again it says that the library copied from Anaconda is the wrong version.

So i managed to to get the original library file from an Ubuntu 14.04. Checked with ldd again all looking fine, except when i try to run it from terminal again with packettracer nothing happens.

If i run it as ./PacketTracer7 it starts normally, but after a few seconds i get a seg fault again.

Any ideas ?


Finally i was able to solve the issue. In order to make it work for Fedora 27, you need totally four shared libraries, which you just copy to /lib64 and run a sudo ldconfing

The libraries are:,, and

They all need to be 64-bit x8664. The way i obtain them is by a live image of Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit x8664 on a USB.
