Org-ref cannot tell that I have biblatex-caspervector installed.

bibstyle installed via Texlive but not detected.

Insert citations command still unavailable.

Is this because of some packages that I missed?


This means that the command kpsewhich biblatex-caspervector.bst returned a non-zero status. That just means that command doesn't know where that bst file is, or that it doesn't exist. If your latex file builds fine, then it is not a problem. If it doesn't build and use that style, then it is not installed in a way that latex can find it.

  • You can run that command at the command line to check it. If it is an issue you have to look into Latex installation details for where to to put those style files. If your latex file builds fine though I would probably ignore it. – John Kitchin Jun 15 '19 at 17:39
  • Where are these .bst files usually stored? I need to know the path where Texlive installed the file, presuming it exists. – Sati Jun 15 '19 at 18:14
  • @Kurt over here says that biblatex does not use .bst files. kpsewhich is a pathfinder? – Sati Jun 20 '19 at 4:01

    yes, kpsewhich is used to find things in your latex paths. I don't use biblatex myself, so I am not too familiar with it. you should see the link to org-ref and biblatex in the link you listed above though. – John Kitchin Jun 20 '19 at 12:22
