Installing MySQL Workbench on Ubuntu 11.10

Thanks to Olivier Berten for providing this package via his PPA Repo !
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:olivier-berten/misc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mysql-workbench-gpl

 
EDIT: this has been confirmed to work on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) as well).
