Nor I understand this. What do you expect?
Note that mariadb-client just installs a command-line database client,
that is, you invoke it in a terminal (most probably it's called "mysql")
and enter SQL commands into it.
For a graphical client, I think the usual suspect will be phpmyadmin,
which is a Web interface written in PHP.
Sorry I couldn't be more specific, but perhaps this helps us find
the right direction.
