In terminal I run next commands:

sudo apt-get install mysql-server
sudo apt-get install mysql-admin
sudo apt-get install mysql-query-browser

With first command - all ok.

But for latest two commands: Unable to locate package.

My question: Why I can't install admin and query browser?

MySQL has officially declared EOL (End of Life) for Query Browser. You can check it on http://dev.mysql.com/doc/query-browser/en/

MySQL Workbench Install mysql-workbench is its replacement and its now available in Ubuntu 12.04 repositories:

sudo apt-get install mysql-workbench

All features are supported by Workbench.

Install via the software center

Confirm that mysql-workbench is in 12.04, please, there's rumors its not, and a bunch of packaging request bugs for it to be in 12.04. –  Thomas W. Jun 6 '12 at 19:29
    
I can confirm that mysql-workbench is in the archives. –  Nathan Osman Jun 17 '12 at 1:01
    
@ThomasW.Don't take our word for it, you can always check such the status of packages Ubuntu releases: packages.ubuntu.com/… –  MestreLion Sep 5 '13 at 6:40

Bummer: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mysql-gui-tools/+bug/896463

There is mysql-workbench ... https://launchpad.net/~olivier-berten/+archive/misc

aptitude show mysql-query-browser
aptitude show mysql-workbench
aptitude show tora

Well, the workstation running 12.04 on which I found mysql-query-browser, was updated from 10.04 to 12.04 - it was retained across the upgrade - so that is a different situation than a non-upgrade clean install of 12.04 .

Also, I have found a PPA:

Unfortunately - on Linux anyway - mysql-workbench is a mess. It's bloated with crap I don't need and is just way worse to use for everything I use the query browser for. I just want a simple tool to connect to the db and run queries (with tabs), but I guess now I'll have to go somewhere else to find it, yay. –  Thor84no May 4 '12 at 9:08
    
I tried the workbench for a few days but it used up all memory of my machine so I had to kill it. So for me it's completely useless now. I hope it's still possible to install the query-browser somehow. –  Zitrax May 23 '12 at 8:48
    
@Zitrax: it's free software, so you can always compile from source and run it :) –  MestreLion Sep 5 '13 at 6:42
    
Only if the world understood how important simple tools like admin and query were. Workbench is good only for reverse engineering. Else its crazy and heavy. I dont need that shit. –  Siddharth 2 days ago

I found precise instructions and the packages that worked for me without any hassle here. Hope this helps people.

PS: Do not forget to reload the repositories.

If you think as many others that unfortunately mysql-workbench is not a good and a simple tool to do quick and fine things, you can install previous deleted tools directly from the repository manually. You just have to download and install the following .deb packages:

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/amd64/mysql-gui-tools-common/5.0r14+openSUSE-2.2ubuntu2 https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/amd64/libmysqlclient16/5.1.58-1ubuntu5 launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/amd64/mysql-query-browser/5.0r14+openSUSE-2.2ubuntu2 launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/amd64/mysql-admin/5.0r14+openSUSE-2.2ubuntu2

Of course this is for amd64 architecture, for the i386 just change the link.

See http://www.tolaris.com/2012/05/16/added-to-precise-repository-handbrake-mysql-query-browser/

Summary: add the Tolaris 'precise' repository to sources.list, GUI Tools should then be available to install.
