PacketTracer_730 dependency error

Hi guys,
I’m going to install PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb but I get these errors
Selecting previously unselected package packettracer.
(Reading database … 465032 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack PacketTracer_730_amd64.deb …
Unpacking packettracer (7.3.0) …
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of packettracer:
packettracer depends on libdouble-conversion1; however:
Package libdouble-conversion1 is not installed.
packettracer depends on qt-at-spi; however:
Package qt-at-spi is not installed.

dpkg: error processing package packettracer (--install):

 packettracer

but I cannot install libdouble-conversion1 neither qt-at-spi
what should I do?

try installing through GDebi Gui
or CLI using sudo gdebi <path_to_deb_file>

you can find almost any debian package from Here (*if you need)

(I searched the Parrot OS repository hence found parrot has libdouble-conversion3 instead of libdouble-conversion1)

so i assume PacketTracer v730 cannot be installed on Parrot OS

I encountered a similar problem and ended up using “wine”…

Well, that is a issue from PacketTracer app itself.
Similar case is there with anydesk. Though the dependencies are installed on the OS and that of Latest version, these applications like Anydesk and PacketTracer need specific versions of respective dependencies.
So, here is how you do it.
At first, just install the .deb package using dpkg
then it throws an error stating these dependencies are to be installed so
sudo apt install -f for that (if there are already dependencies installed then it won’t be installed, if not will be installed)
then reinstall the .deb package using dpkg
the error still appears but you can run the PacketTracer easily either through terminal or through GUI(if it has)

Wine is better in this case. packet tracer linux doesn’t work well with gtk dark theme.

which version of Packet Tracer did you install?
I’ve just installed Packet Tracer 7.3.0 with Wine64 but it does not work correctly and crashes

I tried to install using deb and failed like you said. Can you tell me how you installed using dpkg?? I am relatively new to linux… I have packet tracer 7.3/64 latest…

Thnx

well you do have a .deb file yes for packettracer?if yes, then for installing any .deb package you run this
sudo dpkg -i packageName.deb
this installs the package (.deb) you have in respective directory.
So you just follow what i said earlier

So, here is how you do it.

At first, just install the .deb package using dpkg
then it throws an error stating these dependencies are to be installed so do this command
sudo apt install -f
–if there are already dependencies installed then it won’t be installed, if not will be installed
after that, reinstall the .deb package using dpkg (command earlier)
the error still appears but you can run the PacketTracer easily either through terminal or through GUI(if it has)

are you sure it works? I don’t think so.
PacketTrace is using outdated libraries and those libraries are not in the Debian repository. so you have to to download them from archives. I saw somebody installed those libraries in Ubuntu, I tried to install them in my system (Parrot) but didn’t work and I had to install PacketTracer using wine. I read wine’s documentation and PacketTracer doesn’t work perfectly but it works. For example I couldn’t change the font and it crashes in some situations.
Which version of PacketTracer did you install? I tried with 7.3.0
