I have not tried to use an odbc driver on Linux. However, the problems
will almost certainly lie in the particular driver, not in Firebird or
OpenOffice. Which driver(s) have you tried?

Lots of developers have successfully set up InterClient on Linux. You
need to post the error message you received, along with a description of
the problem and the versions of Firebird, InterClient and the JDK that
you are using.

I'd look at getting Firebird and InterClient working properly together
before worrying about the OpenOffice end of it.
