- by strelochnik, a year agoRated 3 out of 5Thank you for your hard work on this. Unfortunately, it opens a second instance of Jabref even though I have "remote operation" on and listening to port 6050. The import pop-up window then freezes in this second instance without populating the entry and in the first instance it creates a new untitled library.

Note: this guide assumes you have jabref >= 4.2 and the JabFox extension installed. Also, for all of the files quoted below, you can always create the file by copy-pasting the appropriate text.
Download or create the file org.jabref.jabref.json, which can be found here:
put it in either
(i.e. for system-wide configuration)
(i.e. user specific configs)
Check if the file /opt/jabref/lib/jabrefHost.py exits. If not, download jabrefHost.py from here:
and put it in /opt/jabref/lib/
Mark /opt/jabref/lib/jabrefHost.py as executable, i.e.:
sudo chmod u+x /opt/jabref/lib/jabrefHost.py
Developer responseposted a year agoThanks for your guide. With JabRef 5.0 these steps are now automatic if you install it via the Debian package. See also https://docs.jabref.org/import-export/import/jabref-browser-extension for the updated installation instructions.
