comment Installing TeX Live 2013 on Linux
While this is useful (but incorrect if in a multi-user environment), it doesn't address OP's question about how to fix it such that his package manager sees that he has manually installed texlive.

comment \hat and \bar compatibility issue EDIT: It's a bug, workaround provided
\hat and \bar are accents. Combining multiple accents onto one character is one of the "scary" parts of TeX.

comment why can't \the be expanded?
Something weird is going on here. Google says that 3.14159cm is 89.3868934 TeX points.

comment Arrow heads on \twoheadrightarrow
I think it should be possible to "mask" the extra length off somehow. Possibly with some low level TeX box hackery.

comment Why doesn't \usepackage{times} work with cyrillic characters?
One can also use the TeXLive netinstall and use the dpkg features that let you tell the system "I've manually installed so-and-so packages". This is covered in one of the linked pages from here. After completing a TeXLive netinstall and setting up the equivs for it, one would then go and add the relevant directories to the PATH and MANPATH in /etc/environment (note this is not a shell script, it's a plain text config file), reboot and everything should be working.

comment Is there a quick way to split a (very) long equation?
Possibly one could also do something with the Einstein summation convention here?

comment How can I make the crossed-“O” ($\oslash$) bold?
Please note that \oslash is not the same as the HTML-entity ø (a.k.a. the Danish/Norwegian letter Ø), or the diameter symbol ⌀, or the empty set symbol ∅.

Furthermore, you should really update your TeXLive install. Fontspec has seen many improvements since 2009.

Also, times.sty is deprecated. One should use mathptmx.sty instead. Not that I think it helps with your problem, mind you. The Times font that your LibreOffice sees is probably Nimbus Roman No9 or Liberation Serif if you're on Linux/*BSD and some commercial version if you're on Windows or OSX.

And how badly does this blow up if you do things like \code{1 != 0}?

If you want a reason why it cannot work, see tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=verbwithin
