MySQL Workbench on a Chromebook

I had some issues installing MySQL Workbench on my Chromebook but ended up getting it working by installing a slightly earlier release.

I downloaded version 8.0.19 (Ubuntu Linux 18.04 (x86, 64-bit), DEB Package) and opened the  .deb file from the Chromebook which then installed using GDebi.

GDebi install by:

sudo apt install gdebi

After installing Workbench I had another issue when setting up a connection and entering a password.

the name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service files

This was solved by running the following command in the terminal:

sudo apt install gnome-keyring

After that everything worked 🙂
