When attempting to administer a server using MySQL Workbench 5.2.10 on Ubuntu 9.10 (x64), attempting to administer fails with the error "Administration plugin not found."

Additionally, attempts to create a new server instance also fail while testing the host machine settings with the error "Operation failed:".

Both actions could be successfully accomplished on MySQL Workbench 5.2.8 on the same system.

How to repeat:
1) Double-click on any defined server under "Server Administration". Expected result: Administration tab opens. Actual result: Status bar displays "Administration plugin not found" (no messages generated if started from a terminal).

2) Click on "New Server Instance", select the appropriate host machine and MySQL distribution, and click "Next". Expected result: Tests complete successfully. Actual result: Only the first test, "Connect to host machine", completes and the log displays "Operation failed:" (no messages generated if started from a terminal).

Sorry, on further investigation it turned out that I had the version for Ubuntu 8.04 installed, rather than the version for 9.04. Installing the correct version fixed the problem.
