Hi

Can I know if anyone successfully use mysql-workbench on Solus?

Interested in getting it into repo.

6.3.8 depends on gtk2, there is a new version which uses gtk3. I've tried to compile it but it seems to want mysql installed and available before i can go further.

Until a Solus native package is available, if you are willing to use docker, the following works:

sudo docker run -ti -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/X11-unix -v $HOME/.mysql-workbench:/root/.mysql/workbench -e DISPLAY -v $HOME/.Xauthority:/root/.Xauthority --net=host jdecool/mysql-workbench:latest mysql-workbench

Managed to get it built but can't connect to any databases yet and throwing errors all over the place. There is hope, nonetheless.

Is there anything I can help with to get this in the repo? It's all I need to switch my work desktop to Solus ;)

Patches have been submitted but some changes were asked... so I guess we're waiting for @herbmillerjr to update them.

Folks, please forgive my negligence. I know people are counting on this getting in, so I'm going to do what I can to get this wrapped up.

That would be fantastic. I get around the issue by running a VM just for workbench atm :) -- works but yeah ...

Just installed MySQL Workbench from Software Center. When I launch from the menu, nothing happens. Looking at System Monitor, reveals no hidden processes. What should I do?

Nothing, it's being removed from the repo. See T6823

@JoshStrobl What is the reasoning behind removing this? This package isn't available as a Flatpak or Snap so there is no current way to install it on Solus. The alternative that is available in the repos, DBeaver, is missing several important database visualization features.

Simple. We only allowed it in because someone heavily patched it to make it work with MariaDB (we have chosen not to include MySQL). Those patches are incompatible with the current release of MariaDB and are no longer valid for the next release of MySQL Workbench. Since we have no intention of maintaining those patches and no maintainer has stepped forward, it was removed from the repo. To be clear: in its last state it was no longer functional and could not be compiled against a newer version of MariaDB.

If a new maintainer steps forward we are willing to allow it back into the repos.

What alternative to mysql workbench supported native by Solus?

DBeaver. Quite a trashy GUI (it's the Eclipse Platform), but has a ton of features.

@livingsilver94 surely you can provide a software suggestion without insulting the upstream? Let's keep it classy please.
