The repository contains the mysql-admin package which is a GUI tool for administrating MySQL. From the package's description:

GUI tool for intuitive MySQL administration

MySQL Administrator is a powerful visual administration console that enables you to easily administer your MySQL environment and gain significantly better visibility into how your databases are operating.

MySQL Administrator integrates database management and maintenance into a single, seamless environment, with a clear interface.

enter image description here You can use - Valentina Studio,the program is free. It works on 3 OS: MAC, WIN, LIN. It works as with MySQL, so with PostgreSQL, SQLite and Valentina DB.

I am pleased with this program.


You can use SQLyog on Wine/LINUX with GNOME desktop see product page in TAB SQLyog on Wine/Linux


On Windows I use Devart's MySQL GUI Manager ( http://www.devart.com/dbforge/mysql/studio/ ), but it doesn't work at Ubuntu. So I'll recommend to use WorkBench ( http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/tools/workbench/5.2.html )!


The MYSQL Administrator, which you can install in the Software Center, is a pretty good GUI management tool.

I use this tools and recommend this list for you.

  1. MySQL Workbench (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/workbench/)
  2. HeidiSQL (http://www.heidisql.com/)
  3. NaviCat

I love using MySQL Workbench because easier for me to manage mysql server, and the reverse/foward engineering are very good.

But when doing code, I prefer HeidiSQL which much simple and sleek. But NaviCat also are good tools to have. It help me to structure the complex sql query.

I hope this list and reason behind I use this tool can help you to decide and choose ;)


I use Dbeaver on ubuntu. It is an eclipse style platform independent tool, which is very powerful and feature rich, and receives regular updates.
