I installed MySQl Workbench 6.0 (downloaded from thier website) on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Installation ran smoothly.
However when I tried to start the shell for MySQL Utilities, I had an error saying that MySQL utilities weren't installed, and that I had to download and install them.
So I did. But when trying to install the .deb package for my arch, boom :
The MySQL Connector/Python module was not found
I found this module that looked like the right one (disclaimer : I'm a total noob regarding linux)
sudo apt-get install python-mysql.connector
Installation OK, but still MySQL can't find the connector.
What worked in the end : download and compile sources :
cd /usr/share sudo wget http://cdn.mysql.com/Downloads/Connector-Python/mysql-connector-python-1.0.12.zip sudo unzip mysql-connector-python-1.0.12.zip cd mysql-connector-python-1.0.12/ sudo python setup.py install
Then I was able to launch the shell utilities.
Hope this help.
