"Do you have dozens of PDF files from your favorite scientific articles scattered on your harddrive? Do you also try to desperately organize them by renaming and archiving them in folders? But like the piles of printed articles on your desk, you can't keep up with all the new papers you download, and despite all your efforts it has become impossible to find that one article."

This is how the authors of the Mac software Papers introduce their software. I believe that it is important for the scientific Linux community to have a similar application. Given that I'm not able to do such a software, I propose the idea and hope that some experimented developpers would work on that!

More ideas on the website of Papers:

I count on you!

 Possible Start 2

Take a look at the very lovely user-mode iso file handler acetoneISO here. When one starts this thing up from a terminal, there is a lot of activity going on. What's happenin' ?? One's home is being searched for iso images for this program to access. This without one noticing it without the terminal output.

Kpapers/Qpapers would search (and index!!) the pdfs in the same way, nicely threaded, and build and maintain the "library" without much ado.

JxJigsaws looks for pictures this way, as well.

Don't forget about books, it will be rather cool to see the Contents(stored in PDF), access(and index by themes/keywords) particular chapter and so on.

Cool app. =)

 Would be awesome

Having something like this would be very cool.

I don't see the reason for this being an application though. Wouldn't it be better to have it integrated with okular or maybe even konqueror/dolphin?

 Sounds great

The proposal made here sounds like a great idea to me. Actually, I have been looking for a program like that for a long time, and found nothing I am happy with.

Two more comments:
1) From my experience in different theoretical physics departments, I can tell that most of them are running their computers with Linux/KDE, and are lacking kpapers or something similar. In this area, a good interplay with online preprint archives like http://www.arxiv.org, literature databases like http://www.slac.stanford.edu/spires/ and citation search engine like http://www.citebase.org/ would be great and also important to make maintaining ones local library a manageable task.

2) A somewhat related JAVA program has been created by Christian Sämann, and can be found at http://www.itp.uni-hannover.de/~saemann/celsius.html. For a screenshot, see http://www.itp.uni-hannover.de/~saemann/images/screenshot.gif. Maybe this can serve as inspiration for kpapers.

I really hope kpapers will be produced somehow!

I would really love to have some application like this!

If there is a project to do it, I might try to collaborate!

Other related software to get ideas:

1. Jabref - Java application like kbib but also has reference grouping. It uses the bibtex file format and stores the additional info in a comment at the end.

2. Zotero - Firefox plugin. Haven't used it yet, but it can extract the reference information while browsing a page (journal databases, newspapers even amazon). Also supports tags, notes and other useful stuff. It can export to bibtex.

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.
