run it without <code>sudo</code> and with debug and verbose options, like this <code>mysql-workbench --log-level=debug3 --verbose</code> – mchurichi May 31 '12 at 22:39
I just get the same output as before: – Voidcode Jun 5 '12 at 4:28
But I do not know what this log means... or what I can do to fix it .. – Voidcode Jun 5 '12 at 4:30
