Version 9.2.0 released today.

Highlight is an exciting new feature:

Credentials Manager

A built-in Credentials Manager simplifies password management. With shared credentials, you can change a password in a single location and no longer need to manually locate and update individual sessions.

kazaii commented on 2022-02-28 15:40 (UTC)

For anyone following along, I received confirmation that the signature did change. I also received an explanation as to why, which essentially comes down to time.

I will periodically check the hash and update it, as it will be expected to drift, as the release passes a set amount of months.

kazaii commented on 2022-02-27 02:32 (UTC)

The commit is complete. Thanks again for the catch


kazaii commented on 2022-02-27 02:25 (UTC)

Thanks, Xuebit.

Truly, that's odd. I was sure I checked the md5sum when I originally downloaded the file. But I went to the webpage and confirmed your md5sum is correct








When I check my file in my cache, for sure, I have the old md5sum

[kazaii@broadview scrt]$ md5sum scrt- 
9f7e5d60e777b22dcb727b1dad1efe7d  scrt-
[kazaii@broadview scrt]$ 

then I just re-downloaded it and I see the new one

[kazaii@broadview Downloads]$ md5sum scrt- 
e41778e8d837ca8d3a83f9ae1bdd90a8  scrt-
[kazaii@broadview Downloads]$

There is a Requests section in the top right of this page, where you can make a merge request. But commenting is sufficient as I received an email notification.

I will commit the new md5sum now

Thanks for this package Kazaii, if anyone is having issues with installing this and getting the following error:

==> ERROR: scrt- was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

There is a line in the PKGBUILD file:

To install this package, you need to download the SecureCRT for Linux package in tar.gz format and place it in the same directory as the PKGBUILD

Edit: I was having issues with the MD5 sum. MD5 provided with package: 9F7E5D60E777B22DCB727B1DAD1EFE7D.

Up to date MD5: e41778e8d837ca8d3a83f9ae1bdd90a8

I updated my PKGBUILD file, but how do I make a request to have this updated?

kazaii commented on 2021-11-27 03:07 (UTC)

New maintenance release, 9.1.1, is available.

kazaii commented on 2021-09-12 15:43 (UTC)

Thank you @GeBo .

I personally use Yay and was not aware of Paru. Double thanks for that

Groups can safely be omitted, as it's essentially unused in this project. I've made a new commit.

GeBo commented on 2021-09-12 15:14 (UTC) (edited on 2021-09-12 15:14 (UTC) by GeBo)

Great, thanks!

With paru though, I get an error: key 'groups' requires a value: Line 7: groups =

Deleting that line solves it for me.

kazaii commented on 2021-09-12 14:21 (UTC)

My computer is restored and the latest update is published.

kazaii commented on 2021-09-02 20:26 (UTC) (edited on 2021-09-02 20:28 (UTC) by kazaii)

Hi everyone. I saw the 9.1 release in my RSS feed. Thank you also to the user, @kistlin, who reported the package quickly.

Unfortunately, my PC with my ssh key for the git repo is currently down (my Ryzen 3900X is dead). Hoping to get a new 5900X next week. I will check to see if I have it in my Restic backups as well.

I will likely clean up my X260 I am currently typing this from and test a new build shortly. Please be patient, if this is not tonight, I'll publish by the weekend.

kazaii commented on 2021-06-23 21:07 (UTC)

Version 9.0.2 is now available; Thanks for your patience.

kazaii commented on 2021-06-22 00:06 (UTC)

@caldog20. Thanks! Sure, I've added you as a co-maintainer, but feel free to opt out at any time. Sometimes life takes us on new adventures and that's okay.

caldog20 commented on 2021-06-21 23:16 (UTC)

@kazii, you are now maintainer. I can stay on as a co-maintainer if you want.

caldog20 commented on 2021-06-21 23:14 (UTC)

@kazii, you are listed as a co-maintainer. But if you want, I can disown the package and you can request to own it. Unless there is a better way to transfer the maintainer to you.

kazaii commented on 2021-06-21 23:12 (UTC)

@caldog20: Yes, I will take over the package, if you'd like. You could also remain co-maintainer or a contributor, if you'd like.

caldog20 commented on 2021-06-21 22:37 (UTC)

If someone wants to take over this package I would be happy to hand it over. I don't have as much time as before to keep it maintained.

kazaii commented on 2021-05-28 03:32 (UTC)

Here's the full pkgbuild with pkgver, md5sum etc. and allowed me to build with 9.0.2

kazaii commented on 2021-05-28 03:09 (UTC) (edited on 2021-05-28 03:13 (UTC) by kazaii)

There's a space now in the depends section

depends=('fontconfig' 'freetype2' 'gcc-libs' 'glibc' 'krb5' 'libcups'
                'libpng' 'libx11' 'libxcb' 'libxkbcommon' 'libxkbcommon-x11' 'openssl'
                'qt5-base' 'qt5-multimedia' 'xcb-util-image' 'xcb-util-keysyms' 'xcb-
                util-renderutil' 'xcb-util-wm' 'zlib' 'icu66')

should become

depends=('fontconfig' 'freetype2' 'gcc-libs' 'glibc' 'krb5' 'libcups'
                'libpng' 'libx11' 'libxcb' 'libxkbcommon' 'libxkbcommon-x11' 'openssl'
                'qt5-base' 'qt5-multimedia' 'xcb-util-image' 'xcb-util-keysyms' 'xcb-util-renderutil' 'xcb-util-wm' 'zlib' 'icu66')

The above will fix it, the space / new line is in 'xcb-util-renderutil'

caldog20 commented on 2021-05-05 00:45 (UTC) (edited on 2021-05-05 00:45 (UTC) by caldog20)

Fixed space typo per enderst's comment below.

enderst commented on 2021-05-04 18:37 (UTC)

The space before .so breaks the build.

install -Dm 755 ./ ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/scrt/libCommonUiQt .so

gbcbooks commented on 2021-05-03 14:10 (UTC)

Is anyone know how to clean up free trial info for 30 days ?

GeBo commented on 2021-04-08 07:37 (UTC)

@ZEBofx: I can confirm that after installing pyenv (thanks for that!) and creating the symlink, I can execute Python scripts in SecureCRT 9.0.1.

I'll leave the environment as it is for now, as for me this is a workable workaround, atm.

Thanks again for your investigation and providing a workaround / temporary solution.

GeBo commented on 2021-04-07 19:46 (UTC)

@ZEBofx: Thank you so much for confirming and investigating further!

ZEBofx commented on 2021-04-06 07:59 (UTC) (edited on 2021-04-06 09:21 (UTC) by ZEBofx)


What I have said, is wrong. I can make python work with scrt, but it works because pyenv build an independent environment, but if I delete it after copying the .so in scrt path, it does not work anymore. So I suspect that we need to build a full python installation in scrt, or play with LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Again, if anybody has an idea on how to build a packaged solution...

ZEBofx commented on 2021-04-05 10:54 (UTC) (edited on 2021-04-05 11:21 (UTC) by ZEBofx)

OK. I am able to make it work by using pyenv (so that I do not break the system installed version of python). And then :
env PYTHON_CONFIGURE_OPTS="--enable-shared" pyenv install 3.8.7
sudo ln -s /home/XXXX/.pyenv/versions/3.8.7/lib/ /usr/lib/scrt/
But of course, this is not acceptable for a package... Being a newbie on creating arch package, I do not know how to solve this. Of course, we can probably copy the in this package but I think it won't be a very nice solution. (I can confirm this work, but if anybody knows how to safe copy this libpython file so that we can embed it in the package that should be nice)
Any help welcome, here :)

ZEBofx commented on 2021-04-05 10:04 (UTC) (edited on 2021-04-05 10:35 (UTC) by ZEBofx)

@GeBo, hum right. Same problem here on manjaro, my python scripts are not working anymore : Unable to load the Python scripting engine.
What I see is is looking for So I have made a very dirty check :
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/scrt/
But now, I have a crash dump :
sys:1: RuntimeWarning: compiletime version 3.8 of module 'SecureCRT' does not match runtime version 3.9
I do not know how to fix this, for the moment.

GeBo commented on 2021-04-05 09:54 (UTC)

Question: am I the only one where the Python scripting is not working in version 9.x? With version 8 I have no problem at all, but with 9 I get an error message dialog: Unable to load the Python scripting engine.

I already emailed Van Dyke and they were very helpful, but could not provide a solution. They say they only support Python 3.8 (and Arch is on 3.9), but after downgrading to 3.8 I get the same error. And I use scripting extensively...

@caldog20: Thank you for taking the time to update this package in AUR!

chrisstm commented on 2021-04-03 12:52 (UTC)

thnx guys. worked ok.

ZEBofx commented on 2021-04-03 09:01 (UTC)


There are tabs in the depends section which might need to be removed. And there is an extra space before .so on line ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/scrt/libCommonUiQt .so

That should fix all remaining problems. Is there a way for me to post my own PKGBUILD (since I added some double quotes) so that @caldog20 does not need to copy paste the result ?

Best regards, and thank you @caldog20 for your time.


chrisstm commented on 2021-04-03 06:58 (UTC)

Well, i am a newbie. I removed the extra spaces in "Depends" section, and you guys fixed the previous error, Now i get:

The PKGBUILD has been updated and formatting for install lines fixed. Please comment on any other issues.

Thanks @ ZEBofx for the updated PKGBUILD

chrisstm commented on 2021-04-02 13:54 (UTC)

thnx m8

caldog20 commented on 2021-04-02 07:16 (UTC)

I will update and repush this tomorrow.

ZEBofx commented on 2021-04-01 05:19 (UTC)

Yes, right. This is because of new lines inserted, before each ${pkgdir}. That have to be corrected.

chrisstm commented on 2021-03-31 21:45 (UTC)

install: missing destination file operand after './'

caldog20 commented on 2021-03-31 20:21 (UTC)

Please keep in mind this does not automatically pull down the installation package from Vandykes website. Due to the need of an account, and licensing, you must download the file manually from their website. The correct version would be: scrt- Place this file in the directory of the package build to install.

caldog20 commented on 2021-03-31 19:23 (UTC)

Package has been updated from @ZEBofx version for 9.0.1

caldog20 commented on 2021-03-31 19:04 (UTC)

I will make the changes and update the PKGBUILD for 9.x shortly

ZEBofx commented on 2021-03-30 10:10 (UTC) (edited on 2021-03-30 21:38 (UTC) by ZEBofx)


Version 9.0.1 is out, but it is not as easy to install as versions 8. I was able to make it run, making the changes "by hand". I will see, when I can make a PKGBUILD so that may help you gain some time. At least, the new build depends on icu66 (which can be installed from AUR) and not on icu63 anymore.

Regards and thank you for your packages !

gbcbooks commented on 2021-02-22 02:18 (UTC)

i read fcitx wiki : in the "XIM" Section, qt5 did not support xim as qt4 did, and SecureCRT just happend to be a qt5 program, and so you have to qtconfig-qt4 , switch to tab "interface", set "DEFAULT INPUT METHOD" to fcitx if you want to use fcitx on a qt5 program. now that is the problem , my qtconfig-qt4 only show me one selection , which is "xim", i can not switch to "fcitx". do you know how to fix this problem?

gbcbooks commented on 2020-12-26 16:07 (UTC)

./SecureCRT: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by ./SecureCRT)

i think libtiff is the reason that why it can use fcitx.

caldog20 commented on 2020-10-14 01:15 (UTC) (edited on 2020-10-21 13:40 (UTC) by caldog20)

I have updated this PKGBUILD for 8.7.3. Due to license issues, this PKGBUILD is not able to automatically retrieve the source at Vandyke's website. Therefore, the file must be manually provided in the PKGBUILD directory, and cannot be installed with an AUR helper.

To install SecureCRT 8.7.3: - install icu63 from AUR first! - Download SecureCRT-8.7.3 - filename is scrt- - Place file in same folder as PKGBUILD - run makepkg -si

karimicus commented on 2020-09-19 15:05 (UTC)

Perfect worked a charm BrokenRouter, much appreciated. (I alread had the ICU63 installed)....

BrokenRouter commented on 2020-09-18 13:24 (UTC) (edited on 2020-09-18 13:24 (UTC) by BrokenRouter)

Until this gets updated, you can install by doing the following: install icu63 separately from the AUR.

Update the PKGBUILD here as follows (changed lines only):


Manually download SecureCRT as per the directions, makepkg, and you're good until the next update.

karimicus commented on 2020-09-17 23:06 (UTC)

Kinda new here so might be making a dogs dinner here, just attempted to run the script there utilizing the latest package from vandyke scrt- I get the following output

==> Making package: scrt 8.7.2-1 (Thu 17 Sep 2020 23:50:37 BST)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...
==> Checking buildtime dependencies...
==> Retrieving sources...
==> ERROR: scrt- was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

Even updating the srcinfo still refers to the previous build. Until a new varient of the aur is built where can I addin the latest build onto to deploy it for the meantime?

caldog20 commented on 2020-07-23 20:06 (UTC)

@kmcrae you have to install icu63 separately through aur. Seems to still work fine.

kmcrae commented on 2020-07-09 04:54 (UTC)

This is no longer working for me. I cannot install icu63.

caldog20 commented on 2020-06-18 01:08 (UTC)

Also the fcitx is a qt5 issue you may look at the SecureCRT docs and see if you can find exactly what QT package it may require but I could never find it.

caldog20 commented on 2020-06-18 01:06 (UTC)

That is a problem with the icu63 package itself not my PKGBUILD. I had installed icu63 from aur and it pulled correct deps with makepkg. Including clang.

gbcbooks commented on 2020-06-16 06:34 (UTC)

update :

i didnot up my archlinux system to date , that is why i can not install icu63 from aur directly .

but fcitx problem still

gbcbooks commented on 2020-06-15 15:53 (UTC)

well , i did the following: 1. edit icu65 PKGBUILD, and remove clang , install it 2. edit icu63 PKGBUILD, and remove clang , install it 3. install scrt-8.7.2 all done.

problem: can not activate fcitx input

gbcbooks commented on 2020-06-15 15:30 (UTC)

can install icu63 from aur , icu63 depends on clang , but which clang version ?

caldog20 commented on 2020-06-05 23:40 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-05 23:46 (UTC) by caldog20)

The PKGBUILD is now updated for the latest version of SecureCRT. Please download "scrt-" from Vandyke's website and place it in the same folder as the PKGBUILD. icu63 is a required dependency that will need to be installed from the AUR prior to running this PKGBUILD. Please let me know if there are any issues.

waranty92 commented on 2018-12-19 19:14 (UTC)

I was able to use this existing PXGBUILD to install the latest 8.3.0. FYI, libpng12 is now a dependency that is required to run the new version.

waranty92 commented on 2017-11-20 10:18 (UTC)

Dear raymii Please update this package. actual version at this moment is SecureCRT 8.3

yurividal commented on 2017-08-09 13:52 (UTC)

Finnaly got it to work. I downloaded libssl1.0.0_1.0.1-4ubuntu5.39_amd64.deb from then i extracted the data archive into my / (2 folders lib and usr). After extracting these 2, i downloaded the archive for SecureCRT and ir now runs!

yurividal commented on 2017-08-03 17:49 (UTC)

does not work after latest update. How can i Fix this?

nabz0r commented on 2017-07-09 17:13 (UTC)

The libopenssl-1.0-compalibopenssl-1.0-compat is no longer available, and the workaround doesn't work anymore. Could you please update this? :)

gtolson commented on 2017-05-09 00:38 (UTC)

Thank you @archshot! that did the trick.

archshot commented on 2017-05-02 12:25 (UTC)

@gtolson @rusty Install libopenssl-1.0-compat (from AUR) and run 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0-compat/ SecureCRT'. It then works for me. I've uploaded a 'scrt-sfx' package here which bundle both scrt and sfx and uses the above workaround - you can give it a try if you want.

gtolson commented on 2017-04-30 17:36 (UTC)

I am having the same issues as @rusty after the last update. Tried the work around from @bubbles but issue remains.

I just managed to install SecureCRT on 64 bit Arch so I thought I would explain what I did to help others: yaourt -S scrt Abort the install after editing the PKGBUILD. The PKGBUILD is now saved in /tmp/. Download the latest tarball from: Move into the folder with the PKGBUILD: 'cd /tmp/yaourt-tmp-headknot/aur-scrt' Copy the tarball to the folder: 'cp ~/Downloads/scrt- /tmp/yaourt-tmp-headknot/aur-scrt' Check the md5sum that will replace the current one in the PKGBUILD: 'md5sum scrt-' vi PKGBUILD Change the values of pkgver/incrver and md5sums_x86_64 You will also need to change the ubuntu version number on the row above the md5sum. save/quit 'makepkg -i' After this it seemed to install correctly but I still could not run SecureCRT. Turns out I was missing something called 'libpng12'. 'yaourt -S libpng12' Everything seems to be running now.

raymii commented on 2016-08-24 02:48 (UTC)

Please read the PKGBUILD, it has the instructions.

They upgraded to 8.0.1 so the PKGBUILD file needed to be edited. However I could not find the md5sum at the site so even with the edits the build failed. I am thinking it is a no go for this.

I downloaded the tar.gz file from the site and extracted it into the folder per the instructions and still getting the error [rican-linux@antegros scrt]$ ls PKGBUILD scrt-8.0.1 scrt- src What am I missing?

Please read the PKGBUILD, it has the instructions.

I tried installing it but still fails.. ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> Retrieving sources... ==> ERROR: Unknown download protocol: file Aborting... I already have an account with them should I just download the source myself?

I've just updated to 8.0.0, please let me know if it all still works.

Licensing issues are the reason you need to download the source yourself. THey require you to register and login. The package benefit is of course nicer integration in your system and easy updates via the package manager. Plus it installs a launcher by default.

Honesly, if you have to download the source yourself, which may be unavoidable due to licensing, I'm not sure what the benefit of an AUR package is. It seems much easier to download the source .tar.gz... First install... tar -xf scrt- sudo mv scrt... /opt/securecrt cp /opt/securecrt/SecureCRT.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/ nano ~/.local/share/applications SecureCRT.desktop # Edit Exec path and Icon path ...done. Updates (download new version) tar -xf sudo rm -rf /opt/securecrt sudo mv scrt... /opt Done # Of course, you'd install the launcher to /usr/share/applications/ if you wanted it system wide.
