I installed MySQL Workbench from Ubuntu software center and it just doesn't start when I click on it. There's no error shown up. What's the matter?


$ mysql-workbench --log-level=debug3 --verbose
/usr/lib/mysql-workbench/mysql-workbench-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgnome-keyring.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

$ locate libgnome-keyring.so.0

~$ locate libgnome-keyring.so

Create a symbolic link

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0
