I have not used a relational database since dBASEII was current.
About a year ago I attempted to install MariaDB but didn't find tutorial
which was a close enough match to my system.

I found (and attempted to follow) instructions at:

I successfully did:
    apt-get install software-properties-common
    apt-get install mariadb-server mariadb-client

First, I do not recommend that you follow the instructions on those
pages for adding new repositories.  It is aboslutely unnecessary.
Debian stretch ships official packages for MaraiaDB 10.1 and unless you
have a specific need to use packges from a third-party, it is best to
steer clear of that.

I used the standard Debian repository.

*BUT* both references auto-magically go to a GUI setup screen.
I'm using Debian 9 with MATE.
I don't find anything related on the Applications nor System menus.
Help please.

What specifically is it that you are looking for on the menu?  What are
you trying to do?

The initial setup to create users and associated passwords specifically.
Also anything else required for using it for the first time.
