Install MySQL Workbench 5.2.44 from PPA

MySQL Workbench enables a DBA, developer, or data architect to visually design, model, generate, and manage databases. It includes everything a data modeler needs for creating complex ER models, forward and reverse engineering, and also delivers key features for performing difficult change management and documentation tasks that normally require much time and effort.

We will see how to install MySQL Workbench 5.2.44 from PPA using Olivier Berten’s PPA which is supported by the following distributions:

  • Ubuntu 12.10/12.04
  • Linux Mint 14/13

To install MySql Workbench, issue following commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:olivier-berten/misc

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install mysql-workbench

    You can check free tool Valentina Studio which I think is far superior to other GUI tools.
