Just curious why you would even need PuTTY in Linux? Ubuntu includes regular ssh for ssh client, scp, sftp, or sftp is somewhat easier as a gui using your file manager. I only use PuTTY in Windows, which I rarely run anymore since I lost my job Nov 2015 and my income is managing investments in my retirement accounts (with thinkorswim, a Java app in Linux).

+1 for efflandt's explanation. No need for Putty, just use Nautilus for a more pleasant experience.
Edit: It's been a while since I used it but after setting up a connection try clicking "Add to favourites".
