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

Do you have problem with 'number' field in Slackware?
- May 25 2007
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 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.

Thank you for reporting the problem. It has been fixed in 0.6.1 - May 19 2007
You cannot see all the menus because KBib was installed in a wrong place. Did you run ./configure with --prefix option? You can try to configure and install KBib again with --prefix option. Pls look at http://user.digisurf.com.au/~thachly/kbib/download.html#installation for instruction.
You also need to remove the file .kde/share/apps/kbib/kbibui.xml in your home directory.
If you need further help, pls send me an email.

You need to have kdelibs-devel package installed in your system.
- Jan 21 2007
OK, found the cause. The code has been updated to fix this. You should re-download the source code and run ./configure & make again. - Nov 13 2006
Here is the solution given by Mathieu sometime back:

Re: qt3 error
08/10/2006, 12:21 on content: KBib
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.

Can you email file config.log after running ./configure? - Nov 12 2006
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. - Sep 06 2006
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. - Sep 06 2006
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? - Sep 05 2006
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. - Aug 18 2006
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. - Jul 25 2006
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. - Jul 22 2006
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)? - Jul 21 2006
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) - Jul 07 2006
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)? - Jun 27 2006
Hi,
What is the error? Could you pls post the error messages? - Jun 24 2006
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:) - Jun 20 2006
