No, under Windows I am using MikTeX and I have synctexing.
I use MinGW to compile TeXworks under Windows.

I was also trying Ubuntu9.10 and installed TeX Live from the web, and

I installed TeXworks from Stefan's ppa. (r.578)

OK I'll try, but as I am very new to Linux (Ubuntu) I'll have first to 
understand how to do this.
