This is where debian puts it and where it is:
# This will be passed to all mysql clients
#password = my_password
port = 3306
socket = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
srwxrwxrwx 1 mysql mysql 0 Dec 9 21:19 /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
Is mysqlgui hardcoded to /tmp?

Yes, of course the server is running. I connect with mysql client and
php has no problem. It's *only* mysqlgui that can't connect.
