Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have solved it. It is necessary to install the latest binary from the "development" folder, extract the only file called "biber" and copy it to "/usr/bin".

The binary of the latest stable version 1.0 will not work though and show this error.

slazer@peter:~/Downloads$ tar xvf "biber-linux_x86_64(2).tar.gz" 
biber
slazer@peter:~/Downloads$ ./biber
data source /tmp/par-736c617a6572/cache-fb3144567cd1381b403b18600c1ec4b232b2c018/inc/lib/Biber/LaTeX/recode_data.xml not found in .

What could be the problem? I have 64 bit Linux.

To install Biber, you can do so from the Ubuntu Software Center. By clicking below:

This is, however, only for Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal). When I click it, the Ubuntu software center does not find the package. –  Slazer Jul 25 '12 at 10:25
