Download MySQLWorkBench from the following portal;-

MySQL Workbench can be easily installed on Ubuntu/Gnome. Just download the binary .deb file from the MySQL web site for workbench (currently named mysql-workbench-oss-5.2.16-1ubu904-i386.deb), save it to your home directory. Then run:

sudo apt-get install liblua5.1-0 libzip1 libmysqlclient15off
sudo dpkg -i mysql-workbench-oss-5.1.18-1ubu904-i386.deb (adapt the name accordingly)

Selecting previously deselected package mysql-workbench-oss.
(Reading database ... 145956 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking mysql-workbench-oss (from mysql-workbench-oss_5.2.16-1ubu910_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mysql-workbench-oss:
 mysql-workbench-oss depends on python-paramiko; however:
 Package python-paramiko is not installed.
 mysql-workbench-oss depends on python-pexpect; however:
 Package python-pexpect is not installed.
dpkg: error processing mysql-workbench-oss (--install):

Following packages are also required;-
