I just installed JabRef 4.3 using the jar file on a Linux Mint computer. I get the following error:

$ java -jar JabRef-4.3.jar 
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  154 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  24 (X_GLXCreateNewContext)
  Value in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  25
  Current serial number in output stream:  26

$ java -version

sorry that sounds like a graphics driver problem which is not really related to JabRef.
A quick google search turned up this, but I am sorry. we can’t help with this.
