Tutorial on Inkscape

My graphics editor of course (which I use to make figures) is Inkscape. Basically, Inkscape is just a free and versatile vector graphics editor. Also, there is a plugin called TexText that allows you to insert and edit latex equations which is suuuper handy for presentations and papers. To install inkscape/textext, I recommend following the instructions listed here. Specifically, I did the following:

sudo add-apt-repository
sudo apt update
sudo apt install inkscape

Then, to install TexText I did the following. First, I installed and upated the following LaTeX tools:

sudo apt-get install -y texlive-latex-base
sudo apt-get install -y texlive-fonts-recommended
sudo apt-get install -y texlive-fonts-extra
sudo apt-get install -y texlive-latex-extra
sudo apt install -y gir1.2-gtksource-3.0

Then, I downloaded the tar file here:

cd $Extracted_Download
cd textext-1.8.2
