Ubuntu: Packet Tracer 7.1.1 crashes on startup, Xubuntu 18.04



Question:

I have installed most, if not all QT libraries for packet tracer 7.1.1 to work, but now it crashes upon launching. Splash screen appears, but then the application terminates immediately.

Here's a log when launching: https://pastebin.com/iajXpJZb

Running Xubuntu 18.04.

UPDATE: The issue seems to be related to "Crypto_add_lock()" according to another error log. Not sure what this means though.


Solution:1

It seems that you have missed some dependencies, you can install them with:

sudo apt-get install libqt5webkit5 libqt5multimedia5 \  libqt5xml5 libqt5script5 libqt5scripttools5  

Also you can try the method from my other answer for 16.04 LTS:

cd /tmp  wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/i/icu/libicu52_52.1-3ubuntu0.8_amd64.deb  sudo dpkg -i libicu52_52.1-3ubuntu0.8_amd64.deb  

But even after these actions sometimes it really crashes with Segmentation fault (core dumped).

As it is proprietary software, you should ask Cisco for support and/or special deb-package for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.


Solution:2

Try this:

cd /tmp wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/i/icu/libicu52_52.1-3ubuntu0.8_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i libicu52_52.1-3ubuntu0.8_amd64.deb

That fixed it for me :)
