Thread: bibtex editor

  1. #1

    Default bibtex editor

    I was using Kbibtex under 11.2 on my Lenovo (32-bit) but YaST does not find it now that I have upgraded to 11.3. Perhaps it is as simple a matter as adding another repository. Can anyone clarify for me? -- thanks. jdw

    i can't perfect clarity on it as i've never used latex, but put
    kbibtex in the search block at http://software.opensuse.org/

    but BE CAREFUL, i have no idea which if any of those might work...so,
    plan a good way back to try again..

    for example: you didn't mention which KDE you are running but the
    first and last one i see listed are for KDE3 and i guess would be a
    big mistake to try it, unless you are running KDE3

    and, you need to hold your breath (maybe) to try the KDE_Unstable or
    11.3_KDE_Release_45 unless . . .

    also, you must always be careful if using the 1-Click because you
    really really need to NOT leave their repos enabled afterwards..

    Thanks DenverD -- yes I did not give very specific info... but all's well that ends well (for the moment!)... I'm curious why also "you
    really really need to NOT leave their repos enabled afterwards" -- security, I assume? Thx jdw

    Depends on whats in them You don't want to pull an unstable package on an update. Get what you need and disable. Unless you really know what you are doing and exactly what these privately maintained repos hold disable after you get what you want.

    If you want to post your repo list
    zypper lr -d

    I'll take a look. But it should have added a stable repo only

    no, stability...

    if you have not, read the paragraph beginning with *"IMPORTANT"* in
    this post http://tinyurl.com/33qc9vu which mentions among other things
    that more than the basic four repos give one the opportunity to
    accidentally install programs which cause "compatibility problems"..

    additionally you can find (somewhere in these fora over the last
    couple of years--use the forum's advanced search page) dozens (more
    likely hundreds) of threads where the problem is solved simply by
    disabling five, ten twenty or more repos (and, leaving the basic four)
    and then using "zypper dup" to force the system to back level to and
    updated, but otherwise not "compatibility problems" infected system..

    ymmv
