    Kile and Jabref

    New to Linux and LaTeX.

    I am running Ubuntu 7.04 and I am having trouble getting citations to register in Kile from JabRef.

    I have compiled a database in JabRef, and saved the .bib file in the same directory as the Kile .tex file. When I click the LyX/Kile button in JabRef the citation appears in Kile. However when I try to view the document by converting tex to PDF the Kile log indicates that the references are undefined.

    If I try Build>Compile>BibTex Kile tells me:
    [BibTeX] Postdoc_proposal.bib => Postdoc_proposal.bbl (bibtex)
    [BibTeX] finished with exit status 2

    I was hoping that someone could help me through this as I see great potential in using these applications.

    Thanks in advance

    Did you insert a bibliography command (using kile) in your latex file giving the location of your *.bib file?

    No I don't believe I did that. As I said I am new to this. I will figure out how to do that I suppose.

    Thanks

    Ok so I did that and now when I try to convert to PDF or compile LaTeX:

    [PDFLaTeX] Postdoc_proposal.tex => Postdoc_proposal.pdf (pdflatex)
    [PDFLaTeX] finished with exit status 1
    ./Postdoc_proposal.bbl:1:Missing \begin{document}. \begin{thebibliography}{}
    ./Postdoc_proposal.bbl:1:Missing \begin{document}. \begin{thebibliography}{}
    ./Postdoc_proposal.bbl:3: Empty `thebibliography' environment on input line 3.
    ./Postdoc_proposal.tex:19: Citation `Bent2006' on page 2 undefined on input line 19.
    ./Postdoc_proposal.tex:0: There were undefined references.
    [PDFLaTeX] 2 errors, 3 warnings, 0 badboxes or

    BibTeX :

    [BibTeX] Postdoc_proposal.bib => Postdoc_proposal.bbl (bibtex)
    [BibTeX] finished with exit status 2

    Another tab comes up with .bbl extention that reads:

    \begin{thebibliography}{}

    \end{thebibliography}


    Any other suggestions?

    Sounds like syntax problems. Here is a good introduction:

    Edit: You might want to use the /bibliography{FILE.bib} command instead since this alllows you to specify an externl bibliography (FILE.bib)

    Thanks, I will read that over carefully. I appreciate your help.
