comment How can I instruct Nautilus to pre-generate thumbnails?

comment Cannot access deja-dup backup
You actually need to restore the backup with deja-dup as it is encrypted. You need the backup password for that which you hopefully remember.

I recommend TeXstudio: is is based on Texmaker, but is open-source and has additional functions to make life easier. texstudio.sourceforge.net

comment How do you find out which program is using too much memory?
@Siddharth you can use htop which is a nicer version of top. Hit F6 to sort by e.g. CPU or RAM usage.
