comment Problem with generating Reference list (no bbl file generated?)
I think TH has probably diagnosed your problem. In your first screenshot, it seems that you have told TeXMaker to run JabRef instead of bibtex at the stage when TeXMaker would ordinarily run bibtex to generate a .bbl file from your .bib file. Replacing "C:/Program Files (x86)/JabRef/JabRef.exe" with bibtex should fix your problem.

Why don't you structure your thesis so that you can compile it in your institution's provided format and in classicthesis format?

comment How do I install TikZ on a MacBook?
@Joseph: It's just point 2 that's inaccurate, yes? Specifically, the lack of administrative privileges was responsible for the error messages that ann reported, but the underlying problem was trying to use a TikZ library that doesn't actually exist.

I think the problem here is that you should be using \usetikzlibrary{mindmap} instead of \usetikzlibrary{mindmaps}.

For what it's worth, the current version of PGF/TikZ on my MacTeX 2010 install (updated through the TeX Live Utility) is 2.10.

As for your specific problem, you do not ordinarily have write permissions in /usr in Mac OS X, so you need to use sudo texhash instead of texhash (which is essentially what Caramdir is suggesting that you do).

When you say that you have TeXShop, do you mean that you have MacTeX: tug.org/mactex ? If so, then you should be able to run the "TeX Live Utility" (found in /Applications/TeX) to install PGF (and TikZ) if they're not already installed.

comment Headings and advice to write a PhD in physics using LaTeX
@Mermoz: Git works fine with LaTeX. You may want to take a look at the vc package ( ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/vc.html ), which allows you to include version control information (from Git, Bazaar, or Subversion) in LaTeX documents.

comment What's a good package for typesetting quantum circuits?
OP's primary objection to XyPic was speed, which matters if you're using it every time you build your document (which is the standard workflow for Q-circuit). The workflow for qasm2circ is to build the quantum circuit diagrams beforehand and then use \includegraphics, which offsets the slowness of XyPic (and is a better workflow for preparing documents for publication). And regardless of the OP's objections to XyPic, the fact that qasm2circ was used to produce the quantum circuit diagrams for the book on quantum computation makes it an important alternative to be aware of.
