Trouble setting up MySQL connection

I've installed the MySql server and the server appears to be running. Setting up the connection is a problem. I'm seeing the following message:

Could not connect to host 'LocalHost'.
MySQL Error Nr. 1045
Access denied for user 'scottamead'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Any ideas?

Connection to MySQL server

I wasn't aware I needed to. I had installed it from the Synaptic Package Manager and select a number of files that appeared to be relevant.

I'll give that shot. I also need to send a note to MySQL and ask them to update their documentation pages so that the screen shots are accurate.

Thanks for the help. I'll let you know what I find out.
