Apologies me if I am posting this question in a wrong thread.

I am creating a cross platform database application using Mono. It uses oracle database as back end. I used ODBC drive to connecting database. I can connect to database using this following connection string in my windows machine

Driver={Oracle in OraDb11g_home1};Server=localhost;Uid=system;Pwd=manager

For Linux I uses Linux Oracle OS for Database server. I installed oracle client in my fedora OS. and cofigure the client using net cofiguration assistant tool with oracle client. client connection working OK. Then I try to connect with my mono application using the followig connction string

Driver={Oracle ODBD Drive};Server=orcl;Uid=system;Pwd=manager

but the above connection string not worked

please help me....
I am using Oracle 11g version. Do I need to install any other ODBC driver to access oracle database
