    Where can I find mysql_config?

    I am trying to install the MySQLdb package for python and the instructions tell me that I need to add mysql_config to my path. This file does not appear to exist in my mysql installation, or anywhere on my machine. I installed mysql-server from the ubuntu package manager, and then did a search of my system for that file.
    Code:
    sudo find / -name mysql_config
    This gave me no results. Can someone tell me where I can find this? Is it part of some extra toolkit for mysql?

    Thanks

    Install the libmysqlclient-dev package.

    You can search for specific files on the packages page: http://packages.ubuntu.com/.
