Cannot Connect to Oracle Databases on Linux Because Qt OCI Driver Unavailable

Article ID: 293  |  Last updated: 11 May, 2017


After installing the Oracle OCI driver for native database access, you cannot connect to Oracle databases on Linux and the following error is returned:

‘The Qt OCI driver was unavailable. Make sure that the RDBMS client libraries are installed.’


Some Linux distributions do not install the library, which is a required dependency for the Oracle client libraries.


Manually install the library from the Linux distribution package management system. Refer to the Linux distribution help for information.
