Should we assume that you've gone through the process of setting up an account with Cisco, downloaded the software from them, and encountered some sort of problem?

I had the same problem: I think the link I got from network academy has a key in it that identifies me, and since they explicitly stipulate in their usage agreement that I may not redistribute the software, I will not provide the link here. But I can tell I had issue with it as well. The Ubuntu package was build for Ubuntu 12.04 i686 (32-bit) only, it works perfectly for me in an Ubuntu 12.04 i686 (32-bit) virtual machine. But I guess you wild like it to run nativly in 64-bit Fedora 20: I got it running after I installed a specific 32-bit ssl library built for 64 -bit Suse:

It is a good idea to open the script that starts packkettracer and remove the redirection of standard output and errors to /dev/null.

And then start the script from the command prompt to observe any errors.
