This question already has an answer here:
I'm trying to install MySQL Workbench on my Ubuntu box (11.04). The website has a Ubuntu .deb available for download (for 10.10 and 10.04 so I chose 10.10).
sudo dpkg -i mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.34-1ubu1010-amd64.deb
(Reading database ... 194069 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to replace mysql-workbench-gpl 5.2.34-1ubu1010 (using mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.34-1ubu1010-amd64.deb) ... Unpacking replacement mysql-workbench-gpl ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mysql-workbench-gpl: mysql-workbench-gpl depends on libctemplate0; however: Package libctemplate0 is not installed. mysql-workbench-gpl depends on libpython2.6 (>= 2.6); however: Package libpython2.6 is not installed. mysql-workbench-gpl depends on libzip1 (>= 0.8); however: Package libzip1 is not installed. mysql-workbench-gpl depends on python-paramiko; however: Package python-paramiko is not installed. mysql-workbench-gpl depends on python-pysqlite2; however: Package python-pysqlite2 is not installed. dpkg: error processing mysql-workbench-gpl (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for bamfdaemon ...

Processing triggers for python-support ... Errors were encountered while processing: mysql-workbench-gpl
My question is, is there a way to tell dpkg to automatically fetch missing dependencies, or do I need to manually
apt-get install missing packages like libctemplate0 and libpython2.6?
(Or alternatively, is there some other way to get MySQL Workbench easily up & running?)
