Even the simple ctrl+F is not working... I tried installing texmaker from software center and xm1math web site, but shortcuts still doesn't work...
Install the Qt5 version of texmaker (at this date it is the one you get from ubuntu-software-center) and always run it from terminal using:
env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= texmaker
or (a permanent solution)
Open nautilus as root:
sudo -H gedit /usr/share/applications/texmaker.desktop
you will see
[Desktop Entry] Categories=Office;Publishing;Qt;X-SuSE-Core-Office;X-Mandriva-Office-Publishing;X-Misc; Keywords=Editor;Latex; Exec=texmaker %F GenericName=LaTeX Editor Comment=LaTeX development environment Icon=texmaker MimeType=text/x-tex; Name=Texmaker StartupNotify=false Terminal=false Type=Application
Now change the line
Exec=env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= texmaker %F
and then save and exit
Create an alias in the
.bashrc or create the file
~/.bash_aliases and define the alias:
alias texmaker='env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= texmaker'
save it, exit and source it. From the home directory, do:
Done. Now opening Texmaker from the terminal will work perfectly.
Note: In a way it's very similar to @Vitor Abella's method.
The problem seems to be Qt5 and setting
UBUNTU_MENUPROXY did not fix it for me on Ubuntu 16.10 for me, so here is my solution:
- Remove Texmaker:
sudo apt-get remove texmaker texmaker-data
- Download the latest Debian version of Texmaker from: http://www.xm1math.net/texmaker/download.html#linux (In my case, I downloaded
- Install it:
sudo dpkg -i texmaker_debian_jessie_4.5_amd64.deb
Note: the package might have some dependencies like
libqtwebkit4 that you might have to install manually
