Description:

KBib is a bibliography manager for KDE. It uses BibTex as its native file format

* Add/edit/remove references
* Support copy/paste/drag-drop of references (BibTex entries can be copied/pasted or dragged/dropped from another Kbib window or a text editor into KBib and vice versus)
* Search and download references from Z39.50 servers, SRU servers, Pubmed server, IEEEXplore, ISI Web of Knowledge, Google Scholar, Citebase.org, ArXiv, Spires, Scitation, Optics InfoBase, Science Direct and MathSciNet.
* Download references from remote reference database (opened with Konqueror, Firefox), such as IEEEXplore, ScienceDirect (RIS format), Web of Science (ISI format), Google Scholar (RIS and Endnote formats) into KBib (see screenshot)
* Create new references from plain text, reference identifiers (DOI, ArXiv ID or Pubmed ID) and PDF files.
* Find/remove duplicated references
* Generate citation key automatically
* Check/correct duplicated citation keys
* Lock/unlock citation keys (to prevent unwanted change of citation keys)
* Sort references
* Search references(fairly simple)
* Cite selected references into Lyx/Kile (using Lyx pipe)
* Support string macros
* Import references from Bibtex/RIS/ISI/Endnote/COPAC/MODS XML/PubMed XML/Endnote exported Bibtex (without citation key) files
* Export to RIS/Endnote/MODS XML/HTML files
* Save selected references into a new file
* Support user defined reference types
* Add/Delete/Edit reference types
* Allow different view modes (view all/by reference type/selected references/unselected references)
* Group references by various properties. References can be grouped by reference type and any field (user defined). Group view can be disabled.
* Allow flexible displayed fields
* Generate bibliography from selected references

The soft looks nice :-)
I actually use tellico, and I think you should take at look at it if you don't know it.
Your soft is only dedicated to bib entry management, that is an advantage. But many feature of tellico are very very usefull, as the possibility to dispaly an additionnal tree view that groups entries by any existing field (including keywords).

Yes, I know tellico. Actually, I looked at tellico before I started KBib (when it was still called Bookcase). Tellico is very nice app for different kinds of collection. But it does not support BibTex files natively. You have to import bibtex files, do whatever you want, then export back to Bibtex. If tellico supported BibTex files natively, I would not had started KBib:)

Hello,

I haven't yet managed to compile it but so far it looks promising.

Do you know Kbibtex and cb2bib? Perhaps it would be good to chat about future enhancements, interactions etc. - I don't suggest to merge these packages but to smoothen the interactions of these very handy packages and profit from each others knowledge.

now I tackle my qt3 error messages to finally run Kbib ,-)

 qt3 error

I'm getting the qt3 error too.
kubuntu (dapper)
I have AL KINDS of qt3 packages installed... to test, I installed ALL I could find from Adept (I'm a real Noob, so I do kind of a broad approach.)
error message:

For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.

What I think is the relevant portion fo the config log:

The google results are not helpful, but generally suggest that the config file might be lookign in the wrong place (or something) for the file.

I look forward to using this software, thanks for you help.

Hello,
I don't use kubuntu, so I don't know how it is configured. My guess is that your system does not have qt-devel package installed. Can you check what are your QTDIR and QTINC variables (from env command)?

Thanks for your time... this noob much appreciates it.

I have what I can find for qt-dev files:
libqt3-mt-dev

I've looked for the variables you mentioned- but I'm so totally new I have no idea how to get the info you need. Some of these basic things are hard to find on google.

Anyway, thanks for your help.

The new version (0.4.2) my solve your problem. It it does not, you may need to set the QTINC variable (run command "export QTINC=/usr/lib/qt3/include" from the shell)

Hi,
Fisrt of all, I would like to say that Kbib is a really good program !

On other hand, I'm also a Kubuntu user, and had also problems with QT3 libs.
The solution was partially given here, but I make it clear for noobs.

1) Install kdebase-dev package
$ sudo apt-get install kdebase-dev
It will prompt for root passwd and ask if you want to install lot of packages (~77Mo) : say Yes.
2) Install libqt3-mt-dev and libqt3-headers packages
$ apt-get install libqt3-mt-dev libqt3-headers
3) type in the shell you try to install Kbib :
$ export QTDIR=/usr/share/qt3
$ export QTINC=/usr/share/qt3/include
4) follow instruction in INSTALL file (./configure, make, sudo make install).

Thanks again for this really good work.

Mathieu

I have compiled it under openSuSE 10.0 and everything looked alright.
But how do I start the programm?
kbib on the shell does not work.

But it looks like a great app!

Probaly, kbib was installed in a directory not in your PATH (it was installed in /usr/local/bin/ or /usr/local/kde/bin, I think). You can check if kbib is there. If it is you can start Kbib from there or add that directory to your PATH (run export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/kde/bin:/usr/local/bin)
Don't you get KBib menu item in Office menu group? What is your KDEDIR enviroment variable (from env command)?

 Great Software

 
 by clnanderson on: Jul 21 2006
 
Score 50%

Very useful piece of software. Switched from kbibtex when I discovered this primarily because data entry is more streamlined (no need to switch tabs all the time).

The one thing I'd like to see is when yhou copy the "preview" to the clipboard it preserves the format rather than as bibtex. Make life a little esaier for using kbib with other tasks (pasting already formatted references into blogs for example).

Otherwise I love it and can't wait to see how it develops.

Nice suggesstion. I will consider it in the future version of KBib. In the mean time, you can change the preview mode to short preview (in setting menu) then select and copy the text in the preview pannel.

When I select and copy the formatted reference in the preview pane, it pastes as bibtex!

Am I doing something wrong?

To copy the text in preview panel, you should select the text, righ click and select Copy. The Ctrl+C key combination is used to copy BibTex formated entries. I should remove (or change to something else ) Ctrl+C shortcut in context menu of preview.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
