Traceroute graphique avec la carte du référentiel


Il semble que xt (xtraceroute) a été supprimé du référentiel, est-ce que quelqu'un connaît un autre programme de traceroute graphique dans les dépôts principaux qui dessine des cartes?Sinon, un paquet deb lâche fera l'affaire, ou un PPA.


Package/binary mtr does what you need. By default (I think), Ubuntu has mtr-tiny installed.

It should start with a GTK window, but you can always invoke it with mtr --gtk or mtr -- curses to specify what you want.


Try Open Visual Traceroute. Available on Sourceforge. It uses Java and works well in Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04.

1. Install Oracle Java 7 JRE

  • Open Visual Traceroute requires Oracle Java 6 JRE or newer to be installed.
  • The easiest way I have found is to install Java on Ubuntu is via the Web Upd8 PPA .
  • First add the PPA. Open a Terminal Window and enter :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
  • A good idea to minimise any Java conflicts is to remove OpenJDK.  open a Terminal Window and enter :
sudo apt-get remove --purge openjdk*
  • To install Oracle Java 7 version and make sure gksu is installed (removed from Ubuntu 13.04) open a Terminal Window and enter :
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer gksu
  • Tip: Top check the Java version installed on your system open a terminal and enter :
java -version

2. Download and install Open Visual Traceroute

  • Open the Terminal window and enter :
mkdir /tmp/OpenVisualTraceRoute
cd /tmp/OpenVisualTraceRoute
  • Then for 32bit and 64bit systems download and install the latest version with :
sudo unzip download -d /opt/
  • Extract the application icon to be used for the launcher and set permissions with :
cd /opt/OpenVisualTraceRoute*
sudo unzip -j org.leo.traceroute.jar */internet.png
sudo chmod +x

3. Create an Open Visual Traceroute launcher

  • To create a Ubuntu Unity Desktop Launcher, create a desktop launcher file with :
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/open-visual-traceroute.desktop
  • Then add the following information and save :
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Open Visual Traceroute
GenericName=Open Visual Traceroute
X-GNOME-FullName=Open Visual Traceroute
Comment=Open Visual Traceroute
Exec=gksudo /bin/sh
  • Then add the path to the latest version and icon in the launcher with:
cd /opt/OpenVisualTraceRoute*
sudo su
echo "Path=$(eval pwd)" >> /usr/share/applications/open-visual-traceroute.desktop
echo "Icon=$(eval pwd)/internet.png" >> /usr/share/applications/open-visual-traceroute.desktop
  • You will then be able to search for Open Visual Traceroute in your unity dash and launch the application.

Original install guide can be found here :


Sometimes, it may require you have whois package installed:

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ovtr:

ovtr depends on whois; however:  Package whois is not installed.

Then we would just execute:

sudo apt-get install whois
