This is how I did it:
- Open TeXworks->Preferences, go to TypeSetting Tab
- In the Processing Tools box, create a new entry (say, TexDviPs2Pdf)
- Edit that new entry. In the "Program" box, I enter "simpdftex". In the
"Arguments" box, I enter (one per line):
  "latex", "-extraopts", "$synctexoption", "$fullname"
- Click OK

This works for me with with v0.5r791 on an Ubuntu box. I am using TeXLive

Hope this helps,

- Iwan
