Install JabRef

leave a comment »

JabRef is a Java-based reference manager with an emphasis on LaTeX. Installation involves downloading the *.jar file (find a link to the most current version here).

Change permission on file to allow execution (of course, use your version of JabRef jar):

chmod u+x JabRef-2.8.1.jar

Starting JabRef from the command line is done with:

java -jar JabRef-2.8.1.jar

In practice, it is probably best to create a launcher for the application.
