DBeaver is a SQL client software application and a database administration tool. For relational databases it uses the JDBC application programming interface (API) to interact with databases via a JDBC driver.



DBeaver is not yet available on PantherX but you can install it anyway, using Flatpak.

If you don’t have Flatpak, simply run:

guix package -i flatpak

Then install DBeaver:

$ flatpak search dbeaver

$ flatpak --user install io.dbeaver.DBeaverCommunity


“invalid privatekey” connecting through SSH tunnel

Working with DBeaver you might find that you existing OpenSSH private key does not work with the application; ref. Here’s how-to rectify that:

  1. Open DBeaver
  2. Help > Install New Software
  3. Work with “All available sites”
  4. Filter by SSHJ; install the options
  5. Restart

Now simply select SSHJ in the connection window, and use your OpenSSH private key as usual.
