MySQL GUI Tools in Ubuntu 9.10

Previously I had post on, MySQL in Ububtu which was useful for some of the Ubuntu user. Here I am providing you some easy steps to install MySQL GUI Tools in Ubuntu. As most of the MySQL user know that dev provides MySQL GUI Tools, which makes easy to operate database. To install MySQL GUI Tools, here are some simple instruction to be executed in terminal.

Step 1:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start

This will start the the mysql. If you have not installed MySQL in your system, please refer my post Here.

Step 2:

$ sudo tar –directory=/opt -xzvf mysql-gui-tools-5.0r12-linux-i386.tar.gz

This instruction will will download and unzip all the required file in /opt/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/

Step 3 :

$ /opt/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/mysql-administrator

This will open MySql Administator window. Here we can operate database graphically. If you want to run some query in MySQL Query Browser give following instruction in terminal.

$ /opt/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/mysql-query-browser

This application  works very well in my system but, I am facing some resolution problem. So that I was unable to open MySQL Administrator window exact size(appearing larger in height), but when I click on the window it is shifting me to down which make the work possible. I hope you will not find same problem.

One of my reader(mike) suggest me this instruction:

$ sudo apt-get install mysql-admin mysql-query-browser

I tried it, works better than above one. So, even I suggest you to work follow this instruction. Thank you mike.
