I would like to know which is the procedure to install the mysql c++ connector.

After installing it to my Ubuntu OS will I have these extra c++ commands avaiable in every c++ IDE? For example, can I use them in Qt, Netbeans, eclipse for c++ and all other c++ IDE environments after a successful installation?

Using a debian command worked for me, but I haven't tested the libs yet, so I'm not 100% sure if it truly worked. http://packages.debian.org/sid/libmysqlcppconn-dev

apt-get install libmysqlcppconn-dev

However, I did do this first http://askubuntu.com/a/259603/128334. You probably will need to as well.

Update (it works)

I tried this http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/connector-cpp-examples-complete-example-1.html with this flag http://stackoverflow.com/a/11879650/1382306, and it worked.
