Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) and MySQL Workbench gpl, fix plus deb repository

with 3 comments

Since the install of Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) my MySQL Workbench was mostly unusable. I could not open it normally and Query Browser was not accessible. Finally a few days ago a patch was summited to the MySQL forum, but it was for a self compile version only.

Today I found a debian repository that maintains MySQL Workbench gpl and the fix is already implemented there. In order to update it use next commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:olivier-berten/misc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mysql-workbench-gpl

Now we have a debian repository for MySQL Workbench and a version that will work on Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)

  1. Thanks! Been having trouble with the workbench ever since Oneiric landed. Any chance you could share the link to the bug report over at MySQL?

  2. Thanks Alex – your article helped me get MySQL Workbench up & running in my new laptop with Oneiric in no time at all.

    Thanks again.
