Cisco Packet Tracer on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

When you’re trying to download Cisco Packet Tracer, you’ll notice it says “Ubuntu 14.04” only. Well it works on 16.04 LTS as well with a little addition.

Here are all the steps to installing Cisco Packet Tracer:

  1. Download the Ubuntu version of Cisco Packet Tracer
  2. Extract and run “install” script
  3. If you run packettracer now it will say “Starting…” but it won’t actually run.
  4. You need to download this package, libicu52_52.1-3ubuntu0.8_amd64.deb. If you google that you’ll find various mirrors. I found it here: http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/i/icu/libicu52_52.1-3ubuntu0.8_amd64.deb
  5. Install it via “sudo dpkg -i libicu52_52.1-3ubuntu0.8_amd64.deb”
  6. Run packettracer from terminal
  7. Voila!

FPGA Editor

If you’re trying to run the FPGA Editor on Ubuntu 16.04.03 then you’ll encounter these errors, and how to fix them.

./fpga_editor
/opt/Xilinx/14.7/ISE_DS/ISE/bin/lin64/_fpga_editor: error while loading shared libraries: libXm.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Navigate to https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/xenial/amd64/libmotif4/2.3.4-8ubuntu1 and download the .deb file.

sudo dpkg -i libmotif4_2.3.4-8ubuntu1_amd64.deb

During this process it will complain abot not having libmrm4, libuil4, and libxm4 in that order.

Now simply run the following command to fix the unmet dependencies:

sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get install libXp
