To install PuTTY 0.67 on Linux Mint 18.3

PuTTY is a free and open source terminal emulator serial console and network file transfer application. It supports serveral network protocol, including SCP, SSH, telnet, rlogin and raw socket connection. It can also connect to a serial port. PuTTY was originally written for Microsoft Windows, but it has been ported to various other operating systems. Official ports are available for some Unix-like platforms, with work-in-progress ports to Classic Mac OS and macOS, and unofficial ports have been contributed to platforms such as Symbian, Windows Mobile and Windows Phone.
