Linux GUI for MySQL
Posted 22 January 2013 - 04:39 PM
Is there a good alternative? I like the functionality and features that MySQL Workbench offers, but I need something a bit more stable. The features I'm looking for are:
- Connect via SSH Tunnel
- A nice query executor
- Able to save SQL snippets (not so important, but nice)
What do you guys use?

I'm interested in seeing other options as well.

http://netbeans.org/...cles/mysql.html (old article, but you can catch the drift from the videos)
I'm pretty sure Eclipse has MySQL integration too.

I know of http://sourceforge.n...ojects/mysqlcc/ which works decent. The workbench I just hated. The MySQLCC program was the best I found, but I still prefer to use the CLI.

You can use Valentina Studio http://www.valentina...tudio-overview. Works on Linux, Mac and Win. 14 Feb 2013 in the 5.0 version added support of mySQL/mariaDB , as well as, SQLite, PostgreSQL. It is FREE. Includes not only db management but powerfull reports that work again on 3 OS.

MySQL Workbench works fine in Windows, but it's a heap of crap in Ubuntu. You can't select multiple data rows, it's slow, it crashes every 5 minutes...
Hm..... that's very weird. I've never have a problem with it for one year on my CentOS6.x (Gnome) machine. I thing that problem appears because of yours linux graphical environment.

I don't know why you cannot retrieve the content from multiple tables and databases.
Unfortunately, there is no way to test it how this wonderful program works in windows ( I have only windows 95)
See my log, the last time that I restarted the mysql-workbench was at March 28.
[jazzman@localhost log]$ ps aux | grep /usr/bin/mysql-workbench jazzman 31356 0.0 0.0 106096 1276 ? Sl Mar28 63:27 /bin/bash /usr/bin/mysql-workbench jazzman 32504 0.0 0.0 103244 844 pts/0 S+ 12:57 0:00 grep /usr/bin/mysql-workbench

I don't think that MySQL WorkBench is very good for Windows... Read the article about its more professional and functioonal alternative: http://blogs.devart....-for-mysql.html

I've not had any issues with MySQL Workbench in either Windows or Linux.

I've been using Workbench in Ubuntu for years without any problems at all, it hasn't crashed once.
Another alternative you can try is Squirrel SQL, I know that also works for Microsoft SQL databases as well. I used it on a previous Microsoft project and it worked great but I still prefer Workbench for non-Microsoft databases.
