Flamerobin doesn't use ODBC.

But it looks as though your Linux is missing the c++ runtime that is
required to be loaded before the ODBC driver.

You might be able to get by with a symlink for this runtime....or you could
shortcut all this guesswork by posting your question on the
firebird-odbc-devel list. Then the developer can tell you which kernel he
built the library under and give you instructions to roll your own for Ubuntu.
