Installing MySQL GUI Tools in Ubuntu 10.10

      Download Generic x86 tarball from

      mv mysql-gui-tools-5.0 /usr/local/

        Create symlinks to PATH location:

        ln -s /usr/local/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/mysql-query-browser-bin /usr/local/bin/mysql-query-browser-bin
        ln -s /usr/local/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/mysql-query-browser /usr/local/bin/mysql-query-browser
        ln -s /usr/local/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/mysql-administrator /usr/local/bin/mysql-administrator
        ln -s /usr/local/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/mysql-administrator-bin /usr/local/bin/mysql-administrator-bin
        Create symlinks to /usr/local/share

        ln -s /usr/local/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/locale /usr/local/share/locale
        ln -s /usr/local/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/mysql-gui /usr/local/share/mysql-gui
        Almost done..
        At this point mysql-administrator should be fully working.
        However with mysql-quer-browser, I received a shared library dependency “libgtkhtml-2” error, when ever I tried to start it. It turns out Ubuntu 10.10 has libgtkhtml-3.14 installed. Manual download and install libgtkhtml-2 needs to performed since it’s no longer in the Ubuntu Universal repositories for 10.10.

        tony@acer01:~$ mysql-query-browser
        /usr/local/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/mysql-query-browser-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

        dpkg -i libgtkhtml2-0_2.11.1-2ubuntu3_i386.deb
