Good to hear you got it working, but depending on the server-install to
get embedded working is not ideal. I will put this on my todo list to
investigate what is necessary to get embedded running on Linux without
having to depend on a server-install.

Also be aware that in Firebird you can assign rights to a specific user or
role, if that is done and you use the database under embedded you do need
to specify a username (and I assume for Linux also the correct password).

You're welcome!
