comment inconsolata bold on old ubuntu/precise/TexLive
I'm still missing something: for the document \documentclass{article} \usepackage{zi4} \begin{document} \texttt{some regular \textbf{and bold} text} \end{document} I get: ! Font OT1/zi4/m/n/10=ot1-zi4r-0 at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found. I did mktexlsr and updmap and the files are in ~/texmf/tex/latex/inconsolata/, it finds the zi4.sty file, what am I still missing? (somehow my markdown's not working either)

comment Adding a 'bridge' or link between two rows in a table
texample.net/tikz/examples - the most complex and powerful drawing tool in the TeXer's toolbox. But complete overkill for the situation described here.

comment Huge matrix in my document. Possible ways to make it look better?
Oops, "off by one" - the fifth column is redundant and should probably be deleted.

comment Adding a 'bridge' or link between two rows in a table
Small comment on table design: have a look at the booktabs package, with the new rule commands it offers you could get that table to look a lot better. Since booktabs also allows you to draw rules that only span some of the columns, you could add an extra empty column to the start of your table and put the braces in there - either with \rowspan cells or with zero-sized boxes as explained below.

comment How to make LaTeX not “Look like Lab Notes”
It is a design question for sure but I think there's merits to treating it as a TeX question too so people can make TeX-specific suggestions like saalk referring to classic-thesis below.

comment How to connect figures by arrows in Beamer?
Would TikZ help? I'm not sure what you mean by "figures" but if they're diagrams, TikZ is good at that anyway; if they're images, you can include them through TikZ and if it's text/tables, you can make a TikZ figure with three nodes each containing a minipage.

comment Where do you find TikZ/PGF source code?
@ThomasH: The "advanced find/replace" plugin for gedit does that under ubuntu. General comment: the .log file created when a tex file is compiled lists all packages and files pulled in, which is a good place to start when looking for where something could be defined.

comment nopagebreak between rule and custom theorem env
Example added. Changed color to textcolor. The reason I don't have a par in the opening command is that this produces an empty line between the opening rule and the text of the definition.
