MySQL workbench with MariaDB


[Linux Mint]

garrett@mint-desktop ~ $ sudo apt-get install mysql-workbench
Reading package lists... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
mysql-workbench : Depends: mysql-client
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Above is what I get when I try to install MySQL workbench with me MariaDB database server. I went to the MySQL website and tried to download the .deb file directly but this is what I got when I tried to run the file. -> Error: Dependence is not satisfiable: libatkmm-1.6-1v5 (>= 2.22.1)

Any ideas on how I can fix this? Or is it even possible to install MySQL workbench with MariaDB? Thanks.

Code:
sudo apt-get install libatkmm-1.6-1 mysql-workbench
And I highly suggest you stick to the Software Manager repo version.

libatkmm-1.6-1 is already the newest version.

and try the software package install operation again.

Don't forget to update the cache when you edit.
Also, use
Code:
mintsources
for repo/ppa management.

Merely restating the problem doesn't help, nor advance your solution.

I said REMOVE those PPAs and re-fresh the cache and try again,
Now you have 2 foreign Software sources.

Since you aren't following direction, I am done here.

Good Luck.

I don't know how to update the cache so I did a restart in hops that that would do the trick. I also ran the command `mintsources` and poked around a bit but I didn't know what I needed to look for. So after I made the changes to the two files in /etc/apt/files and restarted my computer I tried running `sudo apt-get install mysql-workbench` and posted the results. Thanks for your time.

The "Update the cache" button in Mintsources?
Restarting may not do it.


Try
Code:
sudo apt-get install mysql-workbench mysql-client

Thank you for your time, unfortunately nothing has worked. I'll probably just stick with phpMyAdmin. Thanks again.

Sorry it didn't work out Garrett
One possible last ditch attempt, remove libatkmm-1.6-1 first and re-run
Software Manager or Synaptic and install mysql-workbench and let either
of those 2 handle the deps.

So I ran `sudo apt-get remove libatkmm-1.6-1` and then went to the Synaptic Package Manager and typed in mysql-workbench and it showed three options to install.

1. mysql-workbench-data
2. mysql-workbench
3. mysql-utilites

The first time I tried to do this I selected option 1 & 2 but the SPM was showing errors with option 2, it was show the red !. I de-selected and the then selected it again and now it looks like I've go a green light proceed but now I'm afraid to pull the trigger because it's showing that it's going to remove the package mariadb-client. I use MariaDB for a database server rather than MySQL. I understand that it's saying it's going to remove the client and not the server but I'm still uneasy about this. Any advice here? And thanks again.

I'm not sure, but I say go for it.
You get workbench and you can always re-install/re-add mariadb-client.
