 +====== DBDesigner on Debian ======
  
 +// Outflank the problem! Alternative solution, use wine! //
 +In fact, I'd like to recommand strongly to use wine and the Windows installer. It will save you a lot of time with the configuration and the user interface will be nicer:-)
 +
 +I have put some details on my blog:
 +http://21croissants.blogspot.com/2006/12/dbdesigner-4-on-ubuntu-dbdesigner-4-on.html
 +
 +[[http://wiki.mobbing-gegner.de/Linux/MySql/GuiDBTools/DBDesigner|I collect some Links]], great work here!
 +
 +== Update by Danilo Cesar ==
 + 
 +I think that some people will have some problems with new windows under wine that dont get focus. I solve this problem with devilspie and a little script under it. You can find it on: http://www.danilocesar.com/blog/2007/01/13/dbdesigner-wine-e-janelas-que-nao-ganham-foco.

 +
 +=== From Martin ===
 +I can confirm that - I went both ways, and Wine one (actually, I used CrossOver for Linux) is much easier and has better results.

 +===== WORK IN PROGRESS =====
 +
 +[[http://www.fabforce.net/dbdesigner4/index.php|DBDesigner 4]]
 +
 +Get the .tgz from the [[http://www.fabforce.net/dbdesigner4/downloads.php|download]] site.
 +
 +It needs a shared library from Kylix:
 +
 +  libborqt-6.9-qt2.3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
 +
 +Get it from the [[http://kylixlibs.sourceforge.net/down.html|Kylix Libraries]] page:
 +
 +  $> wget http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/kylixlibs/kylixlibs3-borqt_3.0-1_i386.deb
 +  #> dpkg -i kylixlibs3-borqt_3.0-1_i386.deb
 +
 +Then make a symbolic link to the lib and do ldconfig:
 +  #> cd /usr/lib
 +  #> ln -s kylix3/libborqt-6.9-qt2.3.so
 +  #> ldconfig
 +
 +It also needs a c++ shared library:
 +  $>./startdbd 
 +  (nothing happens)
 +  $>cat ~/.DBDesigner4/DBD4.log
 +  $>libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
 +  $>apt-get libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2
 +
 +(Running Debian sarge, I found that this was sufficient to get the application started (this is 
 +DBDesigner 4.0.5.4 Beta).  (I didn't even need the libborqt libraries installed.  Still trying to figure out why...)
 +
 +
 +With regards to //DBDesigner4.0.5.4.tar.gz// on Ubuntu Breezy (close enough to Debian ;-)) and after following the instructions above I still got the "file not found" error for ''libborqt-6.9-qt2.3.so''. To resolve this I ran "''strace /opt/DBDesigner4/DBDesigner4''" and saw that it was trying to open up ''libborqt-6.9-qt2.3.so'' in a variety of locations under ''/lib''. I made a symbolic link to one of those locations:
 +
 +  #> ln -s /usr/lib/kylix3/libborqt-6.9.0-qt2.3.so /lib/libborqt-6.9-qt2.3.so
 +
 +Thereafter, DBDesigner started up. I see now, though, that I have to resolve the ''libsqlmy.so'' problem. Thanks for the great site!
 +
 +http://crlab.com/dbx/download.html DBExpress driver
 +
 +  $> ls -l /var/log
 +
 +more kylix libs needed: http://www.fabforce.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=2710#2710
 +
 +===== Using ODBC =====
 +
 +UnixODBC is available from http://www.unixodbc.org/ or for [[Debian]] users by using apt-get:
 +
 +  #> apt-get install unixodbc unixodbc-bin
 +
 +The next thing needed is an ODBC driver for MySQL which is available as binary package from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/. You should fix some links before copying the files:
 +
 +  $> wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MyODBC3/MyODBC-3.51.07-pc-linux-i686.tar.gz/from/http://ftp.plusline.de/mysql/
 +  $> tar -xzvf MyODBC-3.51.07-pc-linux-i686.tar.gz
 +  $> cd MyODBC-3.51.07-pc-linux-i686
 +  $> rm -f libmyodbc3 libmyodbc3_r
 +  $> ln -s libmyodbc3-3.51.07 libmyodbc3
 +  $> ln -s libmyodbc3_r-3.51.07 libmyodbc3_r
 +  #> cp -a libmyodbc* /usr/local/lib/
 +----
 +
 +I am running debian unstable and after doing all the above, I still got 
 +
 +libborqt-6.9-qt2.3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
 +
 +Finally fixed everything when I got an rpm and converted it to deb with the program alien
 +
 +libborqt-6.9.0-2.i386.rpm can be downloaded from :
 +
 +http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=64092&package_id=68416
 +
 +Convert to deb file with alien and then install it.
 +
 +  #> alien libborqt-6.9.0-2.i386.rpm
 +  #> dpkg -i libborqt_6.9.0-3_i386.deb  
 +
 +Sarge does work with the libborqt_6.9.0-3_i386.deb from
 +http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=64092&package_id=68416
 +
 +The rpm seems to be working for Mandrakelinux 10.x too.
 +
 +Same problem under Ubuntu 5.04 too. I downloaded libborqt_6.9.0-3_i386.deb from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=64092&package_id=68416, installed, and it worked :)
 +
 +On Debian unstable (sid), I had to install the following package and libborqt-6.9.0-2:
 +http://packages.debian.org/unstable/libs/libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2
 +
 +Download the package from the URL above and install it with dpkg.
 +
 +
 +===== Problems with libsqlmy.so =====
 +
 +After following the previous steps in debian sarge I can't use ./startdbd to run the application; it only starts using ./DBDDesigner4 (it reports the error 'libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: can't open shared file.'). But when I try to open a MySQL database, it reports the error "Unable to load libsqlmy.so". What workarounds can be done here?
 +
 +Thanks you very much.
 +
 +Lbracci@cantv.net
 +
 +I had the same problem
 +
 +cmorel@ecnex.com
 +
 +I had the same problem...and here is the fix: I installed the dbexpress library: download the .tar.gz, copied file libsqlmda.so.2.60 (or 3.10 that is a newer version) to /usr/lib and execute ldconfig.
 +
 +[[http://crlab.com/dbx/download.html|Page for DBExpress downloads]]
 +
 +Then I went to DBDesigner4 -> Database -> Connect to database. Click on "New Database Connection", select the "Advance" tab and change the following parameters:
 +  * LibraryName: libsqlmda.so.2.60 (or 3.10, depending of the version that you downloaded)
 +  * VendorLib: libmysqlclient.so.10.0.0
 +  * GetDriverFunc: getSQLDriverMySQL
 +
 +Please note that by default the GetDriverFunc is "getSQLDriverMYSQL" with capital 'Y', that's why it cannot find it (the function inside the libsqlmda.2.60 is getSQLDriverMySQL, if you execute 
 +
 +# objdump -TC linsqlmda.so.2.60  (or 3.10)
 +
 +you'll see what I mean)
 +
 +apatruduque
 +
 +
 +
 +For a more permanent option, find the [Installation directory]/Data/DBConn_DefaultSettings.ini and edit the same settings as above in this file. This will make the changes global and permanent.

 +===================USING XSLT for reporting======
 +ecause Dbdesigner saves in xml format you can use any xsltprocessor for reporting or for inclusing in your documentation,
 +just an example I used the Example/order.xml (But you can use any model)
 +to create the html page do
 +     xsltproc order.xsl Example/order.xml > order.html
 +
 +<!---------order.xsl----
