How to use Pubmed search in Bibus

If you use a proxy server to access the network, Bibus will seem to hang forever (and you have to kill it), when you do a Pubmed search. To be able use the search Pubmed option under GNU/Linux (this trick worked for me using Ubuntu Feisty Fawn i686), use the following tweak:

  • add the following lines to your .bashrc:

export http_proxy="http://yourproxyserver:port/"
export ftp_proxy="http://yourproxyserver:port/"
export HTTP_PROXY="http://yourproxyserver:port/"
export FTP_PROXY="http://yourproxyserver:port/"

  • after saving and closing the .bashrc file, open up a new terminal and type bibus.
  • now you can use Pubmed search

If you are running on Windows XP, add the following environment variables:

Variable name   Variable value
HTTP_PROXY      http://yourproxyserver:port
FTP_PROXY       http://yourproxyserver:port

The environment variable list is accessed by right-clicking 'My Computer' and choosing properties. It is located on the 'Advanced' tab.
