I run Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on my laptop. Due to dependencies, not many MySQL WorkBench versions are available for use. Hence, I am more or less forced to use 6.3.6 which suffers from a bug when exporting a DB. (Exception => Can't export DB as not root user.) The bug is described here.
There is available WorkBench 6.3.7 for download for Linux Ubuntu 16.04, but I just can't use it. Is there any chance to use this 6.3.7 in Ubuntu 14.04 ?
I mean, wouldn't it be great if Canonical elevated version of the pretty outdated workbench v.6.0.8 in their Software Center offer ?
These are my dependency errors, that prevent me to install 6.3.7

I would even try to install them one by one, but actually got nowhere..
