Ok, before I begin I will tell you this is a tool required by an assignment that is overdue but my prof is still expecting. Also, so that you know, not only can my prof not help, but neither can anyone else at the school, we have all tried. And I mean tried! My prof did not leave me in the dust to figure this out on my own, he has tried, tech support has tried, and so has my course advisor (who had no clue what to do even tried) to no avail. This is a software issue regarding my Manjaro KDE version vs. MySQL Workbench not allowing me to complete my assignments. My prof, and my course advisor has given me permission to look for outside sources for help.
Now that intro has been made, here is the problem: I need to Export All however, when opening the file, almost all tools are faded. I noticed at the top where the tab for the file is says unconnnected. So, I figure I had to make a server in the software in order to have use of the tools. I have the tool MySQL Workbench installed on my computer. I have created a user with their own password. I have also stayed with root and tried to create a blank password to no avail. However, when creating a server in order to use the tools in the software, it will not allow me to use the password and I will receive an error message:
Could not store password: user interaction failed
I have tried tinkering with the SSL tab using the SSL Wizard, but also get error messages. I have uninstalled and re-installed the software at least 100x starting fresh with the same information on how to install and set up a user on the software and even sometimes leaving the user part out and staying with root. It does not matter which way I go, I get the same results. And yes, before you ask, I did make sure the liabio library was also installed. I have also tried using some of the snap commands to try to bypass the password issue that seems to be the trouble. Including:
snap connect Mysql-workbench-community:password-manager-service
snap connect mysql-workbench-community:ssh-keys
If I seem a bit irate, it is probably because I went over everything over and over again for months now with no result. It could also be because this is the 3rd time taking this class with the same issue. This is costing me time and money I cannot afford. This is not a specific requirement of the course itself, it is just a tool needed. Also, they have suggested many times that I revert or replace my computer with a Windows OS! They pointed out that should I have used a Windows OS instead, we would not be having any problems. I have only one more course after this before graduation, I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me!
