Hi there,

I'm trying to connect an OO database to an existing mysql DB. When setting up user authentification I get the following message:
Quote:

The driver class 'com.mysql.jdbc.Driver' could not be loaded. The additional driver class path is 'file:///usr/share/java/mysql.jar
com.mysql.jdbc.Driver


I'm on Ubuntu 11.10.
OO is 3.4.4 - OOO340m1 (Build:402)

Has anybody any idea of what goes wrong here?

Thx.

Welcome to the forum.

You actually HAVE the jar file in that given location?

Hi Winfried,

No, it's not there. Is there a place where I should download it and paste it there?

Thx for your help.

Well the actual solution is to install the "libmysql-java" package on Ubuntu.

Thx for Winfried's kind help!
