comment Workflow for preparing lectures using beamer
Definitely use input files, not one large file. You may need to rework the lecture for a different schedule (at least in the US, a 3-hour course might meet 90 minutes for 2 days per week, or 60 minutes for 3 days per week). External graphics can be dealt with with \graphicspath{}.

comment Latex for Tomcat
I'm not someone who's used it, but see if this page about a plugin for Confluence is helpful, or at least gives some pointers on what to watch out for.

revised Remove leading and trailing whitespace on Chapters in memoir
Added references, changed note about titlesec since current memoir isn't incompatible with it, just reproduces its function (section Introduction, Packages).

comment How to configure $PATH (for LaTeX) and run commands in Terminal?
In TeXshop, they're pdflatex and bibtex normally. There's also a pdflatexmk that automates some of the build process.

comment TeXShop is scrolling upwards while pressing cmd
Tried a second account on your Yosemite machine, maybe one just now created to test this? My Mavericks to Yosemite upgrade had no such problem with TeXshop.

comment TeXShop is scrolling upwards while pressing cmd
Can't reproduce the problem you describe here. Same TeXshop version, same MacTeX version. Might try using a newly-created user account to see if the problem follows you around, or is isolated to one account's settings.

comment texlive installed in lubuntu How i can use it in fedora withow installation?
Not directly related to your problem, but you probably don't want to install the 7-year old version of TeX Live packaged by your distribution. See installing TeX Live on Unix for installing a current one. If you do that, mount the install directory on your Ubuntu system, and modify its path appropriately, it should work.

It's almost certainly possible, but it's also not something people do very often. There's no guarantee that Fedora and Ubuntu both expect the TeX install to be in /usr/share, or that there weren't other changes made to the Ubuntu system (PATH entries, possibly) that would have to be duplicated on the Fedora system.

comment texlive installed in lubuntu How i can use it in fedora withow installation?
This is better-suited for a Linux Stack Exchange site (or another site entirely). But basically, you should be able to mount the IDE disk on the Fedora system, and make a symbolic link from /usr/local/texlive in the Fedora system to /otherdisk/usr/local/texlive. One related question elsewhere: How do I mount sub-directory to a hard drive in Linux?

@leoleoleo Then make a much shorter data file and post that in the example. Beyond that, how do you want the point selected: "highlight the point nearest (or at) x=k", "highlight the k-th point", ...?

comment Short and easy way to create tables in LaTeX
Related: Püschel, Small Guide to Making Nice Tables. Also, consider that complex tables might be better represented as graphs. And if you have your data in another tool (Excel, Python, MATLAB, etc.), you may want to automate tabular creation with code, similar to Convert numpy array into tabular.

comment PGFPlotstable with data from csv file : character µ and _ in column header
Related, assuming you can write Unicode to the CSV file: using special characters in csv file imported by pgfplotstable. Then again, depending on how much control you have over the CSV, you might be able to write a TeX formatted header there, assuming pgfplotstable supports that.

comment PGFPlotstable with data from csv file : character µ and _ in column header
An MWE would be helpful, but it may be easiest to just use siunitx to format the column headers in the document instead of the CSV. See the manual pages 3-4 and similar for examples (without siunitx).

comment My equations are not willing to get centered
"I don't know if it's the effect of the template" -- it's always the template (for certain loose definitions of always).
