16.2.3.4. Installing MySQL Workbench on Linux

There are several binary distributions of MySQL Workbench available for Linux. These include:

  • Fedora 10 amd64 (RPM)

  • Ubuntu 8.04 i386 (DEB)

  • Ubuntu 8.10 amd64 (DEB)

In addition to the binary distributions, it is also possible to download the MySQL Workbench source code as a tar.gz or RPM package.

Check the MySQL Workbench download page for the latest packages.

The procedure for installing on Linux depends on which Linux distribution you are using.

Installing DEB packages

On Ubuntu, and other systems that use the Debian package scheme, you can install MySQL Workbench using a command such as:

shell> sudo dpkg -i package.deb

Note that package.deb will be the MySQL Workbench package, for example, mysql-workbench-oss-version_i386.deb, where version is the MySQL Workbench version number.

Note

You may be warned that certain libraries are not available, depending on what you already have installed. Install the required libraries and then install the MySQL Workbench package again.

Installing RPM packages

On RedHat-based systems, and other systems using the RPM package format, MySQL Workbench can be installed by a command such as:

shell> sudo rpm -i package.rpm

Again, note that package.rpm will be the MySQL Workbench package, for example, mysql-workbench-oss-version-1fc10.x86_64.rpm, and version is the MySQL Workbench version number.
