comment texstudio in ubuntu: gensymb.sty not found
(1) welcome, (2) what if you compile via a terminal does it work then? Just to rule out the editor.

comment caption with ltablex and ThreePartTable - the caption is increased by 2
As mentioned in My comment above, ThreePartTable and TableNotes are intended with longtable. Does not make much sense with other constructions

comment Encoding problem: French accents and umlauts are turned into �
Do you have any idea which encoding they are in? Which editor(s) are you using?

comment caption with ltablex and ThreePartTable - the caption is increased by 2
ThreePartTable does not do you any good here, it is for longtable. Use threeparttable when it is a single page table. Also I'd leave the caption outside the threeparttable

comment Bibtex wrong pages position
Plus my German is not good enough to understand the comments at the top of natdin.bst.

comment Bibtex wrong pages position
(1) use pages = {96-105}, (2) the S seems intentional if one looks through natdin.bst looking for the formatting associated with pages, no idea why it is used.

comment How to make proof environment without amsthm?
Agreed, this is not a good solution (sadly seen quite a lot). Also the \textit{Proof:} part gets indented (in most cases)

comment Bibtex wrong pages position
First of all, how should we know? You are not giving us any information as to which style you are using. Please extend your example with a minimal LaTeX document that is compilable and is using the data you provide.

comment TeXMaker auto-completion corrupted for new FIGURE command including label
If you absolutely want to make a command interface, why not make it key=value based instead? Then you can test for the existence of a short caption, and only use it if needed. See eg xkeyval and etoolbox, the later has some good tools to test for empty ness.

comment TeXMaker auto-completion corrupted for new FIGURE command including label
I wouldn't say that that syntax is more readable. Also why should I want to write long and short caption every time. What if the figure needs to be rotated, what it at this particular point hbt! is not a good point (and why is p not on that list). And you will have to know that dummy is translated into fig:dummy. For ones own docs it might be fine, but if it ends up as something that goes to others, I'd much prefer the full version.

comment TeXMaker auto-completion corrupted for new FIGURE command including label
My guess it that the only thin TeXMaker is doing is looking for any \label{...} in the current dir. Makeing shortcuts like this is generally not a good idea as it makes the code a lot less readable. Consider a TM user command that will insert a figure template instead.

comment xinclude pdf in a latex document as appendix - where pdfpages does not work
And also use provide a full minimal example and not just your preamble. We cannot see which document class you are using. It is also a good exercise to make a new copy of your document, and then start removing packages and recompile until you end up with something truely minimal. Often this process will end up with you finding the error your self.

comment I want to make a table but its when I want to add a double line, it gives me two tables
You are much more likely to get help if you provide a full compilable minimal example instead of a sniplet like this. Then those who want to help do not have to add anything to the example.

comment Unintentionally rotated eps
What do you mean by "The packages rotating and graphicx did not help me so far", exactly what have you tried? There are many programmes, that for some strange reason export 90 rotated

comment How can I make text inside set notation look like normal text?
@Manuel, see the latest mathtools manual. If I remember correctly I did add an example on how to make \Set with a build in feature for scaling | (if used). I use that construction all the time in what ever I edit. Then the set builder symbol is independent of the syntax being used.

Why the A2 repeat?

See Christians answer. Plus it does not hurt to look in the enumitem manual
