Missing libtdsodbc.so in freetds-dev - MSSQL on Ubuntu

I'm trying to get MSSQL working on Ubuntu 12.04 via ODBC, and I've followed these steps to the letter:


However, this omits both of these files that are pointed at in odbcinst.ini:

Driver = /usr/lib/odbc/libtdsodbc.so
Setup = /usr/lib/odbc/libtdsS.so

So, I googled a bit and found this:


So I followed those instructions and put libtdsodbc.so in /usr/lib/odbc/, but I still get this error:

Can't open lib '/usr/lib/odbc/libtdsodbc.so' : file not found, SQL state 01000 in SQLConnect


root@ubuntu:/usr/lib/odbc# ls -la
total 552
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root   4096 Aug 19 20:12 .
drwxr-xr-x 62 root root  12288 Aug 19 19:41 ..
-rwxrwxr-x  1 root root 270608 Aug 19 20:00 libtdsodbc.so

I tried chmod 775 on that file, which explains the permissions. Still no luck.

Any ideas? I'm stumped. Would really love to get this working on my Linux box.

EDIT: I'm using Ubuntu 64-bit. I'm betting this is the problem. Hope that helps...

EDIT2: I tried manually getting the 64-bit package from here:


And then I saw there was a file called this:


Woo, maybe a 64-bit version, right?

So I pointed odbcinst.ini at it, and it didn't work.


If you're on Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit.

sudo apt-get install freetds-dev


sudo apt-get install tdsodbc

now look in:
