Cisco Packet Tracer crashes when I delete an object


As the title states, packet tracer will just close when I delete a router or switch or anything else. The only output I can find is below:

This part comes up when I click on the 'X" that you use to delete an object
Code:
Debug: Number of items in m_selected before cancelItem:0
Debug: Number of items in m_selected after cancelItem:0
This next part is what comes up when I actually click on the object that I'm deleting (clicking on it with the X deletes it):
Code:
Segmentation fault
CPtmpConnection::socketError
callManager : onError
callManager : onDisconnect
I'm running version 5.3.2 on 64-bit Arch.

Does anybody have any bright ideas?

If anyone else ever has this problem, I got it fixed. The downside about me getting it fixed is that i'm not quite sure what I did to fix it. I can send you in the general direction though:

I installed yaourt (the Arch AUR package installer) so that I didn't have to manually install packages. I didn't plan on it, but I decided to see if packettracer was in the AUR and it was. I ran yaourt packettracer and, although it didn't install (had errors), my existing installation that was crashing stopped crashing after I did this.

So the packettracer installation attempt from the AUR, although it didn't install, it fixed whatever the problem was. I'm almost positive it had something to do with one of the libraries (libQt*).

If you use arch and want yaourt, add this to /etc/pacman.conf:

Code:
[archlinuxfr] 
Server = http://repo.archlinux.fr/$arch
Then update databases:

Code:
pacman -Syu
then install yaourt:

Code:
pacman -S yaourt
then to install a package from the AUR, do this (never run yaourt as root):

Code:
yaourt packagename

I have figured out the problem. I'm not sure what the exact package is on Arch, but in Debian there is a package called ia32_libs which installs the proper libraries. If you were to install this on Arch as well, I believe it would work.

To set the libraries in the correct place (if it doesn't do it by default), copy the libraries (such as libQtXml.so) to the /usr/lib32/ directory.
