Install mysql Workbench


MySQL Workbench is a unified visual tool for database architects, developers, and DBAs. MySQL Workbench provides data modeling, SQL development, and comprehensive administration tools for server configuration, user administration, backup, and much more. MySQL Workbench is available on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

The simplest way to install it in Ubuntu or Linux Mint is via Olivier Berten’s Miscellaneous PPA:

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


Depending on the Ubuntu version you are installing on, MySQL Workbench version will be between 5.2 and 6.0. For example, using this PPA I installed MySQL 5.2 on Ubuntu 12.04 and 6.0 on Ubuntu 13.10.
