Description yecril71pl 2011-01-03 11:00:10 UTC
The field specifying the connection socket in MySQL connection wizard (direct)
should be a file selector field, not a text field.  It should allow browsing for
the local MySQL socket.  The socket path should be preset to /var/run/mysql.
Comment 1 yecril71pl 2011-01-03 15:50:53 UTC
Actually, /var/run/mysql/mysql.sock.  
Comment 2 r4zoli 2012-09-09 06:12:21 UTC
Change component to none, it is Base UI enhancement not a native connector bug.

In what system is that the default location?

I think we should collect most common default locations, check which one exists, and offer this one as default.

On Fedora it is /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock but it can be modified in /etc/my.cnf under [mysqld] with socket=SOCKET_FILE

On MacOS X it can be /var/mysql/mysql.sock or /tmp/mysql.sock according to

An array could contain:

openSUSE here

I'm afraid there is a bug in the office code that doesn't allow to select a socket with the office dialog (the Gtk file dialog works fine).

See attachment 79574 [details]
The macro in attachment 79575 [details] shows the logic that should be user in this bug for MySQL server socket selection.

Reset assigne to the default "".
