I've installed mysql workbench:

sudo yum install mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.44-1el6.x86_64

Then I've double-clicked its icon on the desktop, but after splash screen nothing is displayed. If from terminal I do the following:

sudo mysql-workbench

it works. What's wrong here? I did the following in usr/bin:

sudo chmod a+x mysql-workbench

but still cannot execute as non-root user.
