@karcher Try to delete that file from your home folder: /home/archer/.heidisql/libmysql.dll

Hi, it doesn't work for me for PostgreSQL although the 2 packages mentioned here (lib32-libldap and lib32-ncurses) are already installed. This is what I get when I run: $ ln -s /usr/share/heidisql/*.dll ~/.heidisql/ <br> ln: failed to create symbolic link '/home/archer/.heidisql/libmysql.dll': File exists

Thanks, but I've tried that... still getting the same "not found" error for libpq.dll.

UPDATE: apparently lib32-libldap was needed for libpg.dll to load.

To get PostgreSQL working
ln -s /usr/share/heidisql/*.dll ~/.heidisql/

Anyone managed to use a PostgreSQL db with this? I get an error about not finding libpq.dll even though it seems to be in the correct location.

Hi guys, I've updated the package to support nightly builds. Let me know if everything works properly.

New version out today:

Why isn't libpq.dll used for support of PostgreSQL please?

dcelasun commented on 2015-06-08 14:24

I don't have lib32-ncurses installed and it works fine for me?

tanj commented on 2015-06-08 14:23

multilib/lib32-ncurses is missing from dependencies.

Updated to the new URL. Thanks @MazeChaZer!

HeidiSQL freezes when I import a 71MB database. The import does succeed, but after that, the program does not respond to any input. Only killing the process and restarting helps.

liviucmg commented on 2014-01-16 12:57

Updated to 8.2 and added a symlink to readme.txt. Cheers!

When I try to connect with a clean installation to Mysql on localhost (yes, it's running), I get "SQL Error (2003) in statement #0: Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (10061)". Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?

liviucmg commented on 2013-10-11 09:56

Updated to 8.1. To work properly, you must use "winecfg" and set the Windows version to "Windows XP".

liviucmg commented on 2013-06-26 08:21

I haven't updated it to 8.0 because of this bug: . It's pretty broken. :(

dcelasun commented on 2012-12-27 06:19

I've been using Heidi SQL via wine for so long; nice to see a package for it. Thanks!
