This is not necessary with Ubuntu, up to release 14.04.

On other systems, in particular Ubuntu >= 16.04, you must install yourself a driver depending on your exact Linux distribution.

Open a terminal and execute the following command :

find /usr/lib -name libmysqlclient??

If no file is found, you should be able to install the required driver with the following command. After that, rerun the find :

sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient??

If a file is found, copy it's full pathname (e.g /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/, and run :

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/  /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

Proceed with installation
