After a few month using Mysql Query Browser 1.1.12, yesterday i decided to try the new version of this tool. So i downloaded the generic version from the site, and since it only support the RPM package, so some aliening needed here.
$ sudo alien mysql-query-browser-1.1.18-1.i386.rpm
And after that simply install the tools (yeah you should know how). No error found while the installation progress is running, but if you trying to run the tools, two message found about the application can’t find the libpcre.so.0 and libtiff.so.3 library. Here’s what you should do, check if you have installed the libpcre and libtiff library, if you don’t have them, then install them first. After everything ready, create two link files that pointing to those new library with commands like these
$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libpcre.so.3.11.0 /usr/lib/libpcre.so.0
$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.so.4.1.3 /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3
Please check that my current version of libpcre is 3.11.0 and libtiff is 4.1.3. Yours may different …
After that, try to run the tools again, and voila … there you go …
