I have installed mysql-workbench on Fedora 23 Virtual machine (VMware) using the command :

yum install mysql-workbench

Now when I tried to issue the command mysql-workbench from terminal I am getting the error :

/usr/libexec/mysql-workbench/mysql-workbench-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libzip.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Also I tried to open same using the mysql icon but when I click on this it does nothing. not sure what I am missing here

  • what packages your system find if you search in your repos for : yum list mysql-workbench-community ? – lese Nov 16 '15 at 9:55

  • ahh, you need to purge and reinstall. – unixmiah Jan 26 '16 at 18:18

As you can see on this link, there is the same problem : https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=75803

Check if you have libzip package installed on your machine. If not, install it and retry.

  • I installed both libzip and tinyxml but still no luck. I am still getting the same error message. I had issued this terminal command to install libzip yum install libzip – LilRazi Nov 21 '15 at 2:55
