so far I've used Jabref under Windows and enjoyed it very much. Now I had to switch to Ubuntu. I installed Jabref and opened my bib file.
It would be great to receive help!
Hi! Can you tell us which versions of JabRef you are using on Windows and Ubuntu?
Your descriptions of the problem sounds like an older 2.11 version which quite outdated...
Ahh, thanks, yes. Ubuntu 16.04 sudo apt-get install jabref made me install version 2.10... using the up to date version everything is working and the GUI looks much better
there is not yet a package for Ubuntu, but version 3.8.2. is avaiable via debian unstable or testing.
