Installing Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 on Ubuntu 13.10 (64-Bit)

I have posted about Installing Cisco Packet Tracer on Ubuntu 13.04 and prior versions. But this method is not working on Ubuntu 13.10 because of repository issue I think. So "Medywan" posted a link. I followed linked and found a new way. But it was not in english so I translated it. 

Thanks for the guy who posted it first : http://www.be-root.com/2013/11/19/installation-de-cisco-packettracer-6-sur-ubuntu-13-10-64bits/ Credit should goest to him!

Run those commands in terminal first.
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get install libnss3-1d:i386 libqt4-qt3support:i386 libssl1.0.0:i386 libqtwebkit4:i386 libqt4-scripttools:i386
After that install using bin file. "Cisco Packet Tracer 6.0.1 for Linux - Ubuntu installation (no tutorials).bin" would be the filename. This name is too long for me. Then I renamed it to "ciscopt.bin". chmod +x ciscopt.bin
./ciscopt.bin
Thanks again to Medywan and the author http://www.be-root.com/ site!

    1. Sorry if this reply is a tad late, but as far as I´m aware Packet Tracer will NOT support ARM CPUs. It comes precompiled as it is closed source, and as a result will only run on x86 hardware.

    1. I downloaded it from a torrent site. If you want official one you may need an account from Cisco.
