I want to install the MySQL GUI Tools in 12.04 and future version because frankly the way workbench works is not even close to how friendly the GUI tools were, specially for simple stuff like doing a quick SELECT of something or selecting a table. I like using MySQL Administrator and MySQL Query Browser. The way they work is much more intuitive than Workbench. How can I install them in 12.04 and newer versions?
- I tried to compile without success because many bugs to fix :(
- I tried to convert .rpm package with alien, its convert and install well but doesn't work :(
- go to this page and download this packed : see UPDATE
Generic x86 Linux TAR (bundled dependencies) 5.0r12
Generic x86/64 Linux TAR (bundled dependencies) 5.0r12
- extract the tar.gz with nautilus doble-click :
- Open mysql-gui-tools-5.0 with nautilus an you will see :
- The first time open a terminal an execute
if you see one error like that just execute
- for second time an more just execute via nautilus
and voala! happy rocking...
MYSQL Announcement the EOL for the MySQL GUI Tools Bundle (Administrator, Query Browser, Migration Toolkit), please use MySQL Workbench has replaced the GUI Tools Bundle instead, and you can't download from the MYSQL web page but I found another page where you can find it:
A better solution is in this link. Where are mysql-admin and query-browser?
It's just a question of running this: sudo apt-get install mysql-workbench
The explanation for this new name "workbench" is in the link above
This is for 12.04+ users:
Since MYSQL has taken the link down, the only quick place I found the compressed MySQL GUI Tools was here:
So download that, decompress and follow the steps mentioned by hhlp here. Note that you need to compile it yourself. There is an
autogen.sh file in both the Admin and Query folders. Run it and it will tell you what else you need to have it working.
While there are many possible paths to install (depending on your setup), in more recent versions of Ubuntu (12+) you may manually add the following sources to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://www.tolaris.com/apt/ precise main deb-src http://www.tolaris.com/apt/ precise main
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mysql-gui-tools
(If your version of Ubuntu has been upgraded, you may need to update *.archive.ubuntu.org sources to your current release, as well-- for instance, to 'saucy').
This seems the only viable path to installing the GUI tools at this point, as all other sources are offline.
