I'm trying to import data from my postgis DB directly into CartoDB. I've seen in this forum's post that I can do that with ogr2ogr, a GDAL tool, in this way:

ogr2ogr -t_srs EPSG:4326 --config CARTODB_API_KEY XXXX -f CartoDB 
"CartoDB:account" PG:"host=localhost user=postgres
dbname=cartodb_dev_user port=5432" "public.table_name"

However, when I try, I get this error message:

Unable to find driver `CartoDB'.

I don't have the driver for CartoDB installed, but I'm not sure how to install it. I see there's this help site, but it doesn't mention how to install it.

My current version of GDAL is 1.10.1 and I'm working on Ubuntu 14.04 machine.

    Read the first line of the document page "(GDAL/OGR >= 1.11)". You can't get CartoDB into 1.10. – user30184 Jul 16 '15 at 9:44
