I don't have a desktop, and so no icon shortcuts. I start emacs from a 

I dont understand. If I already have this environment:

  $ echo $BIBINPUTS

so why do I have to redefine it by adding another statement in my 
~/.bashrc?  I already have there: 
BIBINPUTS=/home/haines/jabref:$BIBINPUTS; export BIBINPUTS.

I understand, but not sure how to interpret the result: 

  $ biber test.tex
  INFO - This is biber 0.9.4
  INFO - Logfile is 'test.tex.blg'
  FATAL - Cannot find control file 'test.tex.bcf'! - did you pass the 
        "backend=biber" option to BibLaTeX?

There is no test.tex.bcf file. 

  $ latex backend=biber test.tex
  This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.3-1.40.12 (TeX Live 2011)
   restricted \write18 enabled.
  entering extended mode
  ! I can't find file `backend=biber'.
  <*> backend=biber 

I have no biblatex command to which I might pass something:

  $ which biblatex

  $ which latex

  $ which biber

  $ which bibtex
