In QGIS 2.6 (Ubuntu 14.10 64bit) the option to add a File-based geodatabase (add vector-data - directory - Esri FGDB) is missing, allthough it was available in 2.4

you must use a version of gdal that was compiled against the esri file geodatabase api, and as far as I can remember (I'm a ubuntu user) this option was never available out of the box using the official (ubuntugis) repositories.

I use Ubuntu 14.04 and that option is available in QGIS from ubuntu gis

Do you use 2.6 in Ubuntu 14.04 ? If Yes, then there is GDAL with FGDB-Support in ubuntu-gis repo ?

If you install it from http://qgis.org/debian the installation is without FGDB support. I removed everything (QGIS,...) and removed this repo - afterwards installed QGIS 2.6. again from the ubuntugis-repo (ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable). With this installation I have got support for OpenFGDB (but not the native proprietary ESRI FGDB). I have to evaluate if the OpenFGD-connector works for me.

Try "Add layer"-> Database -> Type "ESRI Personal Geodatabase"
