sudo dpkg -i mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.33b-1ubu1010-amd64.deb

It won't cause a problem because I install workbench every 2 months or so but a small warning: it is recommended that you read the dpkg manual page before using dpkg, as improper use may break the package management database. To view the manual page for dpkg type man dpkg on the command line.
