How to Run Cisco Packet Tracer 7.2.2 on Linux Mint
Linux Mint 19.2 Tina was released on August 2, 2019, with support for this release up to 2023.
As you know, the latest version of Packet Tracer, the most popular network software program used to prepare for Cisco exams, was recently released by Cisco Networking Academy.
The most current version of the CPT network simulator program is 7.2.2. This version can be downloaded from the official site of Netacad.com. If you do not have a Cisco Netacad account, click here to create a new one.
