comment Incompatibility between fixltx2e, subfigure and figure*
This question appears to be off-topic because it could be solved with replacing an obsolete with an up-to-date package.

comment Incompatibility between fixltx2e, subfigure and figure*
With subfig, the successor of subfigure, it runs without any error. BTW: It did not matter for the example, but in general you should load fixltx2e straight after the document class.

comment MiKTeX Package Manager not installing new packages
This question appears to be off-topic because it could be solved with different software setting.

comment How to get the proper position for eps graphs using dvipdfm?
This question appears to be off-topic because it could not be retraced with a very similar hard- and software setting. Either the original image has a flaw or in the meantime an update of MiKTeX has fixed the error.

Everything works fine here (MiKTeX 2.9, too) with your code and an example image from mwe package.

comment Packages for writing Letter
Instead of page number (differs very likely from language to language) give better the chapter numbers (more stable) in documentation and the KOMA-Script version, where it is valid. So, chapters 4 and 21 in version 3.12.

comment Packages for writing Letter
I do only know, that it exists. So take a look on documentation for your own: g-brief (probably better is g-brief2).

comment How do I write a book with two 'authors', one on all left pages and one on all right pages?
@EricHartsuyker: Nothing needs to be nested here, it depends only on the environment definition. You can start the parallel environment inside of your definition. You only must know then, that you have to use the special commands inside of your environment.

Bernard, in the moment this is more a comment. Could you, please, add some content, for instance a \newenvironment definition? Note also pdfcolparallel from the oberdiek bundle, which makes several patches for parallel (andloads this in background before).

comment Is it possible to make \usepackage depend on paper size?
You seem to need xifthen only for one definition of the environment aufgabe. Try if etoolbox’s \ifstrempty or, not that strict, \ifblank work, as well. So you would not need to load xifthen anymore.

BTW I personally would favour etoolbox.

comment Multi-line options with the `\usepackage` command
You could add the version, where the commas are in front of all. Some people like this more (me not), because they tend to delete them too easily otherwise.
