How-To: Install SecureCRT on Ubuntu 19.04
When your favorite OS has released a new version, but it is not yet officially supported by SecureCRT (or not a platform we build on at all), oftentimes if you are adventurous enough and you don't have any problems running unsupported software on your system and living with any subsequent problems that you might encounter, you might be able to get SecureCRT working.

Below is a set of steps that may help you get SecureCRT installed on Ubuntu 19.04:

# Open a native Terminal app (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run these commands...
# Switch to super user (root) context:
sudo su -

# Change directory to the location where the scrt
# installer .deb file was saved.
# (instead of "user" in this command, type in your
# user account name -- the one that downloaded
# SecureCRT; and if you downloaded the .deb file to
# a location different from 'Downloads', specify
# that folder.)
cd ~user/Downloads

# Download the libssl1.0.0 library:

# Install the libssl1.0.0 library:
dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.2n-1ubuntu5.3_amd64.deb

# Install python2.7 library:
apt-get -y install libpython2.7

# Install SecureCRT using the downloaded .deb file:
dpkg -i scrt-sfx-8.5.4-1942.ubuntu18-64.x86_64.deb

# Exit back to 'user' context:

# Launch SecureCRT as 'user'

And here are the commands without comments:
  1. sudo su -
  2. cd ~user/Downloads
  3. wget
  4. dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.2n-1ubuntu5.3_amd64.deb
  5. apt-get -y install libpython2.7
  6. dpkg -i scrt-sfx-8.5.4-1942.ubuntu18-64.x86_64.deb
  7. exit
  8. SecureCRT&
