I have installed TexMaker, and the compilation works. But my memory is weak and I don't recall which Latex I have installed. All this is too taxing on my memory...


1 Answer 1



pdflatex --version

to tell which version of Latex you're using.

    I see. You ask the question. You get an answer in comments and then you post that to get the credit for it? Do you really think this fair?

    @cfr No, but in this case I don't care enough to write an answer of my own. Commented Oct 9, 2015 at 6:12

    @cfr Not only is it fair, it is encouraged. See stackoverflow.com/help/self-answer

    @cfr and besides the mentioned arguments, Torbjørn T. answered in the comments on March 8, Yan King Yin made this an answer in October! It is way simpler for other users to find and answer, which was written as an answer and it is also easier to see open questions. But Yan King Yin should now also accept his own answer, so the question is marked accordingly.
