is a Firebird Administration tool. It enables you to create new Firebird databases, create/modify tables, procedures, views, triggers, generators, roles, UDFs, Domains, and much more. Turbo Bird application is very easy to install and to use.
There are Linux 32/64 bit, Windows 32 bit, and Mac OS binaries. You can install the source and compile it using Lazarus in any other Platform that already supported by Lazarus.
Stable Release Version 1.0.0 1.January.2014
It is an executable file that you can download and run immediately. You need Firebird client library like libfbclient2. You can use Synaptic, apt-get, yum , or any package manager according to Linux distribution to install FireBird library from Internet.
If you still get unable to load library message, then you need to make a new link for FireBird library in /usr/lib directory like:
sudo ln /usr/lib/libfbclient.so.2 /usr/lib/libfbclient.so
Try this in new versions of Linux (32 bit):
sudo ln /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libfbclient.so.2 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libfbclient.so
For Linux (64 bit):
sudo ln /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfbclient.so.2 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfbclient.so
If you have a freezing problem in TurboBird with Ubuntu Unity execute this command:
sudo apt-get remove appmenu-gtk3 appmenu-gtk appmenu-qt liboverlay-scrollbar-0.2-0
Linux 64 bit executable. For FireBird library problem see the above (32 bit version)
This is Windows 32 bit executable version. You need to install 32-bit Firebird client library. If you already installed Firebird server (32-bit) on the same machine, then no need to install any additional library.
If you get Unable to load library message, then copy fbclient.dll from FireBird binary directory to TurboBird or Windows folder
This is Windows 64 executable version. You need to install 64-bit Firebird client library. If you already installed Firebird server (64-bit) on the same machine, then no need to install any additional library.
This is Mac package for Turbo Bird. Compiled by Cem Zafer
Turbo Bird has been developed using FreePascal/Lazarus. No third party package/component has been used in this project, only standard components. Source code has been compiled with Lazarus 1.0.4 and FPC 2.6.0
Download source code from GitHub
Many people are sending many improvements for Turbo Bird lately, so that I decided to put Turbo Bird in GitHub source control to make it easy for developers to participate on this project
GPL for GUI, and LGPL for Units.
