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

* 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)

* Allow flexible displayed fields
* Generate bibliography from selected references

 problem compiling

 by ijon45 on: Aug 11 2006
Score 50%

Application does not compile with gcc 4.1.0 due to a char* to unsigned int casting.

I have to change lines 195 and 197 in the newstr.cpp file by

if ( startat > endat ) return;

seglength= endat - startat;

and then application compiles without problem

Thank you for reporting the problem. It has been fixed in V0.5.2. I'm also using gcc 4.1.0 (FC5) but it does not pick up the problem.

I converted the .rpm package to .deb with alien on Kubuntu 6.0.6 and installed it with kpackage. There were no problems, everything running smoothly. It's a good tool. Many thanks to T. N.

 Few comments/?s

Great Great software. Trying to switch to Linux, was worried about switching from Endnotes- but that program is a piece of *(tin), after a few minutes I already like yours better.

A few things:
1) I installed on Kubuntu (Dapper)- ran alien on the rpm and installed via dpkg -i fine (I think I had the qt libs installed).

However, I can't seem to find the help (maybe KDE environment switch or some such not set). Anyhow, I've searched the machine and can' t seem to find it. Is it available for download elsewhere? (only things I see are in /usr/share/doc/kbib ... only copyright and changelog, also see no html in the package

2) Primary reason I wanted the above: I primarily use ISI database. Your import seems to work great, I just wanted to see how to modify a few of the fields (an see what you meant by "As string macro")... I wanted to add a few more of the fields such as alternate journal name, and one or two others... most importantly, I wanted to translate the URL to the ISI database (most useful feature in Endnotes IMO). If I am able to get this I'd be glad to pass it along...

Thanks for your great work. (also works seamlessly with Kile, do most people prefer lyx? It still seems a bit foreign after winedit...)

At the moment, there is no help file. Only type of documentation available is the FAQ at http://user.digisurf.com.au/~thachly/kbib/FAQ.html
You can add more fields to a reference entry in the extra field tab (click Add button to add extra field, then edit field name and field value). You also can add more fields to a reference type permenantly, please look at FAQ for how to do it.
By default, all reference types has URL field. Is it not what you want?

Thanks, I hadn't seen your FAQ page before. I'll try modifying the FF .mailcap for direct import.

(What I had imported thus far I saved as field tagged plain text... and the URL field is just a number, e.g.:
UL 000237431600055 ... not very useful for opening in a browser!)

Thanks again.

OK, I know what you mean now. Bibutils is used in KBib as ISI import filter. Currently, the UT field in ISI file is discarded by Bibutils when converting from ISI to bibtex. After looking at Endnote and bibutils code, I found out the way to turn UT field into ISI URL link. I will add this feature into next release of KBib.

Nice work... you figured out the whole (Goto:ISI) part of their script? I was nosing around a bit, and was going to look into it later- but your script-fu is obviously much more powerful than mine!

You can mannualy convert the accession number into real URL by setting the URL field to: http://links.isiglobalnet2.com/gateway/Gateway.cgi?GWVersion=1&SrcAuth=KBib&SrcApp=KBib&KeyUT=xxxxxxxxxxxxx
where xxxxxxxxxxxxx is the ISI accession number.
It should be done automatically when importing ISI file in the next release of KBib.

very nice, do you have any experiences with overlays? I think the right place for this ebuild would be in gentoo-science overlay, an email to their list (gentoo-science@lists.gentoo.org) might be sufficient.

 conflict w/ kdelibs

 by saqer on: Sep 11 2006
Score 50%

The file

conflicts with the file x-bibtex.desktop from kdelibs. Ofcourse if you are installing from source, the file from kdelibs will be replaced. My suggestion is to remove the creation of this file by the package since pretty much every linux installation with kde will have the kdelibs installted as well.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
