I am compiling my project with TexMaker 4.1-1 in Ubuntu 14.04. I have TexLive 2013 and Biber 1.8-1.

I have to compile it running first the TexMaker Quick Build with LuaLaTeX + View PDF, then running biber on the terminal, and then running the TexMaker Quick Build again.

I would like to be able to run biber on TexMaker. Following this other question, I naively set the 1: User Command as biber %.bcf, but it does not work. Anybody knows how I should proceed? Many thanks!


I believe the user command should just be biber % (as in TeXstudio). Credits to the guys in Biblatex + Biber + Texmaker + MiKTeX.

  • Absolutely right! I thought I had tried that, but no... Thanks!
