Question Looking for a Navicat MySQL tool alternative


Hello;

I'm looking for a MySQL tool like Navicat MySQL for Linux (Ubuntu). Please suggest me some.

Thanks.

There are dozens of sites suggesting Linux alternatives for Windows programs. As a member of this forum I don't feel myself an answering service replacing google.

However, if there is a reason you cannot find an alternative, please post what you are trying to achieve (combining MySQL and color picking doesn't immediately ring a bell) and weĺl try to help to find a solution as good as possible.

I've found a color picker program called gpick and it's good, so that I've already updated my message.

When comes to MySQL tool, there's only MySQL's own tools for Linux I could find. But they are not as good as Navicat. Also I couldn't find any other.

I'm sorry that you thought I've written this topic without googling. Also thanks for your reply even you didn't want to answer.

Maybe I did not express myself well. If you could not find an alternative in google AND you can eleborate on the projected use of the tool you are looking for, I would be most happy to see if I can assist.

But when *I* have to google to see what you mean with your question it is the world turning backwards.

Still I don't grab your question about the MySQL tool, but if you explain I'll try to help.

I couldn't understand your last message clearly but I'm just looking for a tool for mysql which can take the place of phpMyAdmin, but I'm looking for a Linux software not web software like.

If you check out this page you'll understand what I ask for. But Navicat is shareware software even its Linux version is. I'm just looking for an alternative for this. (Also there's a software called SQLyog like Navicat, but its linux version is shareware too)

That is a clear explanation, and you also said that PHPMyAdmin is not what you like. Darn... I rememebr I have seen something like that years ago. I will look for you tonight if I can find it again.

Color Picker

Hi,

I wonder which color picker app you have found. Meanwhile, although you say you have already found one, I'd like to suggest Color Converter.

Kind regards,

Mark

@thread starter: I dont know if this will help you, but I use mysql for a desktop application. I have tested navicat time ago, among others SQL tools, and for regular DB maintenance (create,drop,alter tables and even normal queries on them) I use the classic Mysql GUI tools, and I use Mysql Workbench when I need to "see" the relationship of the tables and check if a remote catalog is updated.

I do understand the GUI tools are no longer maintained in favor of Workbench, but there are some things missing in workbench like automatic naming of PK, Indexes and FK which lets you focus on the real task at hand. And compared with workbench, they are very fast.

GUI tools works fine under wine. Workbench is another story.

just my opinion.
