With the new changes in the new version of Deepin 15.7 some problems have arisen which Deepin is already solving and others that are not yet due to the update of libraries. In this post I will explain how to install the database manager MySQL Workbench right from the start.



First we installed MySql Server but version 5.6, since version 5.7 has given me problems with the password issue and entering the server.

sudo apt install mysql-server-5.6
MySql server 5.6
Installing MySql Server 5.6

If you already have version 5.7 installed, transfer your databases to a .sql file so as not to lose them, then execute the following:

sudo apt-get --purge remove mysql-client mysql-server mysql-common sudo apt-get autoremove sudo rm -rf / etc / mysql /

They put their password that they will use for MySql Server and to verify, they connect:

mysql -h localhost -u root -p
 MySql server testing
Connecting to MySql Server

Now for the change of base that Deepin had (it no longer incorporates the dependency (gdal-abi), we will install the latest version that is available in our Deepines repository.

sudo apt update sudo apt install mysql-workbench-community
MySql Workbench
Installing MySQL Workbench

Now we open the program to verify the installation.

MySql Workbench uso
MySql Workbench up and running

If you get a message that the program was compiled for Ubuntu, you are given in not showing again. The program works correctly.

uso MySql Workbench
Example MySql Workbench

Checking the correct installation, we can continue using this database manager in Deepin 15.7.

Hi! I couldn't install the mysql workbench the way you guys did. It tells me that it is not found. I was able to install 8 from the official page but I don't know how to get the server up
