In your .tex file, you must have a command such as:

\addbibresource{/Users/haines/<pathname of your .bib file>/<mybiblio>.bib}
\cite{<some key of your .bib file>}

see the biblatex.pdf manual, you can obtain by: texdoc biblatex

you must not load some packages that are not compatible with biber, such as bibunits, chapterbib, natbib, as biber offers the same facilities and many more.

The commands are then:

pdflatex <myfile>.tex

biber <myfile>   % without the suffix .tex, or.bcf

and run another time

pdflatex <myfile>.tex

I run it by the terminal, with aquamacs and AucTeX, though I did not modify AucTeX to have biber command in the GUI.

best wishes,

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.

If it doesn't work from the command line, then it's almost certainly
not related to AUCTeX and this wouldn't be a good place to ask.

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
