I've installed the software under LINUX (Ubuntu) with the RPM package. This seems to be ok so far I can see. Then I've downloaded the generic GUI tools archive and extracted (as described) in /opt. Starting the browser or administration tool generates the following error: 

"an error occured" 
details: childprocess "/opt/mysql-gui-tools-5.0/bin/mysql-administrator" could not be found. 

Because there is no such bin directory, I can understand the error. But there is no such subdirectory in the tar-file, too. 

What's wrong? Have I to make changes in cnf-data? Where? Which? 

Thanks for help 

How to repeat:
The error occurs generally.

So far I remember I've downloaded it via Germany [Plus.Line AG / Frankfurt am Main] HTTP.

Thank you for the bug report. I was unable to repeat the behavior reported

sorry, I can't fix the problem.

I've downloaded the mentioned data again. The result ist just the same. 

I don't understand why the problem doesn't occur on your PC. The tar-file doesn't contain or generate a bin-subdirectory, because there is no such in it. Therefore the following EXEC-Statement whithin the config-file will generate an error anyway.


Please check again.
