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

* 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

 Minor probs

 
 by ahorseman on: May 25 2007

A really useful piece of software with just a few minor issues. I've just built version 0.6.1 on slackware 10.2 and tried getting references from pdf. The problems I found were that if the doi look-up from crossref.org failed I wasn't given the chance to manually enter the data in the same way as if there was no doi ref. in the document at all. More irritatingly, if I edit any of the references in the database the year of publication is lost (the field in the dialogue is blank and can't be editted). The only way around this is to open the .bib file directly with vi and put the year back. I'm sure these are easily fixable.
Keep up the good work!

The first problem is the missing feature!
I cannot generate the second problem. Does it happen to all BibTex file or just a particular file? Could you please describe step by step how to generate the problem and send me an example file by email? Thanks.

The missing year problem is more awkward than I thought. It happens to any .bib file but only on my Slackware 10.2 installation. All I do is select a reference, choose 'Edit Selected Reference' if the reference already has a year defined it doesn't appear in the dialogue box, I can't edit it and if I choose 'OK' it's removed from the reference.
I built kbib on my Debian Etch server this morning and it works fine. I suspect it may be due to the versions of QT/KDE i.e. 3.3.4/3.4.2 on Slackware and 3.3.7-4/3.5.5 on Debian.

Do you notice any difference in the reference editing dialog between Slackware and Debian? Is there year field in the dialog in Slackware? When you open the reference types dialog (BibTex menu->customise reference types) and select a type, do you see year field in the list? Thanks.

The dialogue boxes appear the same on both systems (with the exception that scrollbars appear on the Slackware machine because of the smaller screen). The only significant differences are that both the year and number boxes are empty and un-editable.

I'm not aware of any package for ubuntu. In order to install KBib from source, you need kdelibs, qt3 and their development packages. There's instruction on how to install kbib on ubuntu at http://www.doink.ch/wp/?p=34

You can download the rpm package from the homepage of KBib and convert it to a deb package using alien (sudo apt-get install alien). The resulting package will not be perfect (you will have to add a symlink from /usr/lib/libssl.so to /usr/lib/libssl.so.6 and /usr/lib/libcrypto.so to /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.6) but it works for me (Kubuntu Feisty 7.04). And of course, you will need Qt, KDE and other dependencies (poppler, poppler-qt) but I suppose you have that :-)

 Possible bug

 
 by daphreak on: Aug 14 2007
 
Score 50%

Hi !

First thanks for this great program !

I think I've found a bug: If you put a tab at the beginning of the comment-field, the contents is not saved.

Try this to reproduce the bug:

- Create a comment for a bibliography entry. Put a tabulator at the very beginning of the comment.
- Save the bibliography
- Close kbib
- Open kbib again. The comment field should be completely empty.

 RHEL5 install prob

 
 by braunm on: Aug 19 2007

Hi. I'm looking forward to trying kbib, but I can't seem to get it to install on RHEL5, x86_64. So I'm hoping that someone on here can help.

When I try to install the kbib-0.6.2-1.i386 rpm, I am told

error: Failed dependencies:
libpoppler-qt.so.1 is needed by kbib-0.6.2-1.i386
libyaz.so.2 is needed by kbib-0.6.2-1.i386

However,

]$ /sbin/ldconfig -p |grep libpoppler-qt
libpoppler-qt.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/local/lib/libpoppler-qt.so.1
libpoppler-qt.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/libpoppler-qt.so.1
libpoppler-qt.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib64/libpoppler-qt.so.1
libpoppler-qt.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/local/lib/libpoppler-qt.so
libpoppler-qt.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib64/libpoppler-qt.so


so it looks like I have libpoppler-qt.so.1 installed.

When I try to install using the source, configure runs fine, but in make, I get the error

/usr/lib64/libpoppler-qt.so: undefined reference to `SplashOutputDev::SplashOutputDev(SplashColorMode, int, int, unsigned char*, int, int)'
/usr/lib64/libpoppler-qt.so: undefined reference to `SplashOutputDev::startDoc(XRef*)'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [kbib] Error 1

I'm somewhat new to linux (im an end-user, not a developer), so I don't quite know what to try next.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Michael

As far as I can see, it's not possible to configure the location of the lyxpipe for reference pushing. Is this right? If so, then it'd be great if the location could be configured, since people put the pipe in various places.

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.
