You can download the source from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html and compile it yourself.

May I ask why?

Putty is fairly unneccessary in linux, it's just a frontend for ssh/telnet. I think it's actually far easier to use ssh from the command line.

You may already have a putty and qputty package available in your distro's repository, but as already been stated, you don't need it.

At work I installed cygwin/X, in part so I can use the openssh client. This even allows using "ssh -X user@host", running graphical Linux programs displayed on a remote windows host.

Why Putty On Unix/Linux

Is fairly true .. Putty is unnecessary on Linux/Unix UNLESS
you have to configure routers via Serial Ports like Cisco...

Cisco don't provide a browser interface for security reasons
you have to install/enable them, thats why Putty became
