Setting up ODBC in linux using unixODBC manager

I am trying to access a Debian 8.6 based, Maria data base via ODBC, and hope to be able to use LibreOffice Base as a front end database tool.

So far I have unixODBC installed and working, at least for mdb database using the mdbtools drivers, in other words, I can get a sql> prompt from isql and issue simple sql commands to the mdb data base.

But I can't seem to get ODBC working for my maria database. I'm not sure what properties to put in unixODBC's /etc/odbcinst.ini and /etc/odbc.ini files.

Here's what I'm trying in /etc/odbcinst.ini:

[mariadb] Description=Maria DB Driver=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/ Driver64= Setup= Setup64= UsageCount=1 CPTimeout= CPTimeToLive= DisableGetFunctions= DontDLCLose= ExFetchMapping= Threading= FakeUnicode= IconvEncoding= Trace= TraceFile= TraceLibrary= CPReuse=

And in /etc/odbc.ini:

[mariadb] DSN=Maria2 Driver=mariadb Server=localhost User=root Password='xxx' Database=bigbase Port=3306 Option=

When I issue the command:

isql mariadb root 'xxx' -v

I get:

[S00][nxDC[a201]a' onc olclMSLsre hog okt'tpmslsc'() [ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLConnect

If I try:

iusql mariadb root 'xxx' -v

I get:

[nxDC[ma-2.0.12]Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) [ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLDriverConnect

Please help me get this working. If you have any examples, or can point to what parameters I am suppose to use would be helpful. Thanks.
