1. Download the package mysql-workbench-oss-5.1.16-16-1-i386.deb, or other version from

2. Install some necessary packages with
sudo apt-get install liblua5.1-0 libzib1

3. Install MySQL Workbench with
dpkg -i mysql-workbench-oss-5.1.16-16-1-i386.deb

4. Because of the bug create a symbolic link with
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
