I'm a happy kile user, I just installed kile-1.7b - great work =3D)
Since I'm currently working on my PhD thesis I have loads of=20
references/bibliographics to handle, so tex/bibtex are the tools of choice.=
Obviously I'm using kile to edit my tex-files - but I can't find a suitable=
tool to view/edit my bib-file?! Sure, there are 'pybliographic' and/or=20
'gbib', but these require a more or less fully installed gnome =3D( in my e=
it's hard enough to keep up to date with KDE, if possible I would like to=20
avoid to maintain two window managers.)
Isn't there any KDE/Qt-tool that can view/edit bibtex databases?
I found Tellico (formerly: Bookcase, http://www.periapsis.org/tellico) - but it us=
a XML representation of the entries (bibtex export available). I'd prefer t=
store the bibtex-data in its native format. Any hints/suggestions?
Thanks in advance

I don't know about KDE/Qt, of which I by the way don't like KDE, but Kile is great. I'am using tkbibtex at the moment, which depends on tk/tcl. You can find it at http://www.cat.csiro.au/cmst/staff/pic/tkbibtex.html
it's just one file which you place at something like /usr/local/bin do a chmod +x and you can use it, it's fast (which can't be said of KDE), and it's likely to have installed tk/tcl allready for something else. Another tip: I use texdoctk to browse tex documentation.
