Installing Dbvisualizer on Ubuntu

Since I changed from Windos to Linux Ubuntu I don’t have all of my dev tools installed. One of those tools is the great universal database tool called DbVis from Minq. Minq doesn’t deliver DbVis as synapt package so I had to find a alternative and since I’m not a Linux blackbelt I had to do some googling. I found this blog and this and this that gave me a hint of what to do. I have to call the alien.

  1. First download the Dbvisualizer as a rpm package from here.
  2. Now I have to install the alien.
    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install alien
  3. Then convert the rpm package to a deb package with alien
    $ sudo alien dbvis_linux_6_0_6.rpm
  4. Next, install the debian package
    $ sudo dpkg -i dbvis_6.0.6-2_i386.deb
  5. Change directory to where it is installed
    $ cd /opt/DbVisualizer-6.0.6/
  6. And run it
    $ ./dbvis
