in thread What are DBD::Oracle's dependencies (on Linux)?

So that means that I still need to install DBD-Oracle? When I try to install DBD_Oracle, it says that the ORACLE_HOME environment variable must be set. I don't know where or how to do this. I read that I need to install the Oracle client, but I don't know where to find this.

    The documentation tells you. See http://search.cpan.org/~timb/DBD-Oracle-1.15/Oracle.pm
    The ORACLE_HOME environment variable should be set correctly. In general, the value used should match the version of Oracle that was used to build DBD::Oracle. If using dynamic linking then ORACLE_HOME should match the version of Oracle that will be used to load in the Oracle client libraries (via LD_LIBRARY_PATH, ldconfig, or similar on Unix).
    Followed by example
    $ENV{ORACLE_HOME} = '/home/oracle/product/7.x.x';
