Okay, I think I've gotten it now. It was put into a dependent
package, firebird2-utils-super, which I hadn't thought I needed the
first time. Has to be run as isql-fb. I also got flamerobin, so
thanks to Max for recommending that.

But, something else has managed to go wrong - not sure if this was
from installing something else or not, but the super server is now
not running when I initially boot up the eee. If I type
sudo /usr/lib/firebird2/bin/fguard , let that run for a little while,
and then control-C, then it starts up an fbserver and I can connect
via isql-fb or via flamerobin. If I don't do this manual startup
routine, then I get 'unable to complete network request to host

Is there a way to check on the startup routines that super-server
should use to see if there's a problem with them, or to force
firebird to be running before I try to connect to it? Thanks.
