  1. Thanks for sharing, but I keep getting this message:

    /usr/bin/mysql-workbench-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgdkmm-2.4.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Please let me know if you know how to fix this. thanks in advance!

  2. Thanks Leo for posting this. And, thanks Olivier Berten for putting this together.
    Very nice :-)

  3. Thanks. My attempt to install using the debian package left all kinds of unresolved dependencies. Using your commands worked flawlessly.

  4. Sorry but the Oliver repository does not work any more:
