Get MySQL Workbench working on Ubuntu 11.10

MySQL Workbench doesn’t work out of the box in the latest Ubuntu. These steps will get it working until Oracle gets around to updating the official package ;)


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

Update: Don’t know if Oracle has fixed this yet. This works in the latest Linux Mint as well.
