Installing Falcon within Linux

Attempting to install v4.1 of the Falcon SQL connector, located here, for use with MySQL 8 within Ubuntu 18.04 and running into issues.

Dowloading the Linux tar ball, I get an error when attempting to execute the included ‘falcon-sql-client’:

chris@chris-x1c6:~/Desktop/falcon-sql-client-4.1.0$ ./falcon-sql-client 
./falcon-sql-client: error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Downloading the source files instead, I don’t see any standard configuration file that would allow me to build from source.

Attempting to load the ‘falcon-sql-client’ executable using the Ubuntu software center also doesn’t work.

Can anyone provide guidance on installing Falcon within Linux/Ubuntu.
