It's true.  I've managed to get it installed using the KPackage installer on
Kubuntu.  The issue now is setting up the ODBC driver and the DSN. I've
moved the Firebird ODBC driver as below:

sudo cp libOdbcFb.so /usr/lib/odbc		# Firebird Driver
sudo cp libOdbcFb.so /usr/lib/perl5/DBD		# Firebird Driver

I've also installed:

Unixodbc-bin - 2.2.11-16build3 (Graphical tools for ODBC management and

the same way.

It looks like a GUI ODBC tool, but no idea where it is.  It looks like the
ideal tool for setting up DSNs.

These files are both empty.

Finally is the format of a DSN file the same as Windows?  Can I just copy a
DSN from Windows and edit the filenames/pathnames?

Thanks and regards
