Below is a script that I put together to download and install the packages and libraries needed to run PacketTracer 6+ on a fresh install of Fedora 21 x86_64. This script assumes that PacketTracer is already downloaded and is in the 'Downloads' folder and that the tarball begins with 'Cisco'. Please feel free to make changes as needed. Enjoy!
