comment TexLive compile using Tex and DVI
At the command line, latex myfile.tex produces a dvi. Then use dvips and ps2pdf to create a pdf version.

comment Fast way to underline words and characters
OK, I've given a slightly more detailed answer below. It may be that this (or something very similar) has been asked before on this site, but if there is a duplicate, I have been unable to find it.

comment Fast way to underline words and characters
Using \let makes a copy of a command; I think this is what you need.

Do you just want \let\und\underline?

comment How can I use the SBS font in Xe|Lua|La|TeX and specify which words to replace?
How do you handle spaces, as in things like 'paradigm shift'?

comment gnuplottex not recognizing options
@Knigge46 --- you haven't gone far enough! The version of gnuplottex in TeXLive 2012 doesn't have the subfolder option. The version in TL2014 does (I don't know about TL2013). You might get away with just downloading the latest version of gnuplottex from ctan. However, this may cause trouble with other out of date packages. It would be best to install TL2014.

I think you should also use \DeclareMathOperator for diag and nondiag.

comment how to use unsrt in thebibliography
Your question isn't very clear. Do you just want \bibliographystyle{unsrt}? If not, please add an example that clearly shows what you need.

Try printing from a different pdf viewer application, or using a different printer.

comment Can I get $$…$$ to behave like \[…\]?
@Gaussler --- \bf, \tt etc. were used in LaTeX 2.09 and their meaning was preserved in 2e to maintain compatibility with old documents. Also, you might be interested in Barbara Beeton's comment here regarding Donald Knuth's thoughts on the use of $ symbols for entering and exiting math mode.

comment Vector vs. Raster: Is there any reason to include (larger) vector images into a LaTeX document?
@Szczypawka --- Some complex images (e.g. shaded contour plots with large numbers of different regions) can be difficult to represent as vector graphics, and in those cases bitmaps may work better. However, for an image such as yours, a (decent) vector representation will give better quality and smaller size. There is no need to use a vector representation, but then there is no need to use LaTeX. You can write your document in Word and draw your diagrams using Paint.

comment Vector vs. Raster: Is there any reason to include (larger) vector images into a LaTeX document?
@Jake --- that beats my 2.9K xfig version! I think the original file was created by Adobe Illustrator, which is the work of Satan.

A 147 Kb vector graphic representing that image is woefully inefficient.

comment Aligning the equations and equation numbers correctly
Well, 16cm is about 455pt, but \documentclass[12pt,twoside,a4paper] sets \textwidth to 390pt, so it's no wonder things overrun the margin. It's usually better to use fractions of \textwidth for minipages. Beyond that, it's hard to see exactly what you want; perhaps you could upload a picture to illustrate this.

comment Compile a paper using NSP instructions
@Johannes_B --- I didn't actually look at the code. The psfig package must have been deprecated for about 20 years!

comment EPS figures are misplaced on top of the text
1: What viewer are you using? 2: This could be a problem with the eps files themselves. Can you make Fig1.eps available for download and add a link here?
