SecureCRT unstable in VMware Guest running Ubuntu 17.10 ?

I'm running Windows 10 running the latest VMware Workstation Pro running the latest Ubuntu 17.10, with the latest SecureCRT installed.

SecureCRT seems to work fine except when away from the laptop, I return and Ubuntu has mysteriously restarted. Upon restart Ubuntu complains that SecureCRT crashed. Please see attached Ubuntu screen shot.

Any ideas what happened or how to fix this?

Hi SimonHF,

According to the screen shot you attached, it appears that you are actually running SecureCRT 8.5.4 on Ubuntu 19.10, which is not a supported platform for that version.

SecureCRT 8.7 beta 1 is, however, supported on Ubuntu 19.10. You can download SecureCRT 8.7 beta 1 using the following link:
