SecureCRT 9.0 on Ubuntu 20.10
 
Seems like it's not yet supported, but are there any way to get SecureCRT 9 running on Ubuntu 20.10? I used 8.7 without any problems, but after installing version 9 it won't start and SecureCRT just hang on startup. Any unsupported tips that I can try on my own risk?

Thanks in advance.

Ubuntu 20.10 is not a supported platform for SecureCRT/SecureFX. Ubuntu 20.10 is not an LTS release, and there are currently no plans for SecureCRT/SecureFX to support it. However, we'll be happy to post here should anything become available.

Workaround:
The following steps have been reported to successfully allow individuals to get SecureCRT/SecureFX 9.0.x working on Ubuntu 20.10:
Code:

# Get the libicu66 package...
cd ~/Downloads
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/i/icu/libicu66_66.1-2ubuntu2_amd64.deb

# Install the libicu66 package...
sudo apt install -y ./libicu66_66.1-2ubuntu2_amd64.deb

# Install SecureCRT+SecureFX bundle:
sudo apt install -y ./scrt-sfx-9.0.1-2451.ubuntu20-64.x86_64.deb
