Please refer to PostgreSQL documentation to download necessary database driver for the corresponding platform.
For some additional information please refer to: installing unixODBC.
ODBC configuration is done by editing the odbcinst.ini and odbc.ini files. These configuration files can be found in /etc folder. The file odbcinst.ini may be missing and in this case it is necessary to create it manually.
Please consider the following examples:
