Installing Cisco Packet Tracer on Ubuntu 12.04

So I've tried to install Packet tracer as per normal and all seems to go well but the program will not open! Anyone with any ideas?

File: PacketTracer532_i386_installer-deb.bin

(I used chmod +x before running the installer).

I know it's in BETA but there were no issues with the last stable release and i've kept this distro updated.

FIX: Install something like WINE which will include dependencies that Packet Tracer also needs to run. I don't know why Cisco doesn't state the dependencies or include them!

Please tweet / like / +1 this post if you found it helpful! Thanks!

Update on 03 April 2013: Has anyone had a chance to test this on 13.04? I've not had a chance myself and would appreciate anyone commenting below. Thanks!
