welcome to Sabayon. Sad to hear that you had such a bad time with Linux Mint, most people I know who are using it are quite satisfied with it. But well, you found another great distribution, Sabayon Linux.
I never use Rigo for package installation but prefer the command line, I have the impression that entropy (Sabayon's package manager) finds more packages there, but I could be wrong on this point.
I searched for the abntex
package and found the following, but if I understood you correctly, this one is too old.
Here is an example of how you can search for packages via your shell:
- Code: Select all
pascal@Sabayon-Parcellite ~ $ equo search abntex
>> @@ Suche...

It might a good idea to ask on the TeX-mailinglist for help on your issue: http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/texhax
. They can probably help you, I seems that most of its subscribers are Linux users. Another option is the TeX-forum of Stackexchange ( http://tex.stackexchange.com/
Sorry that I cannot be of any further help.
Regarding the two-paned file manager the definitive Swiss army knife is KDE's Krusader
(for screenshots look here: http://www.krusader.org/documentation/i ... t-krusader
), but has tabs, which you could ignore of course. It has so many capabilities that one can get easily confused, I only use a tiny fraction, so generally that is not a program recommendable for everyone. I have not found Gnome-Commander
(for screenshots look here: http://www.nongnu.org/gcmd/shots.html
) in Sabayon's repositories (I have probably overlooked it), which also has two panes, but a lot fewer options compared to Krusader, thus having a simpler interface.
I know that GNOME's default file manager Nautilus
displays a two-paned structure when you press F3 giving you the option of moving/copying file between the panes.
The most geeky file manager is arguably the Midnight Commander
or simply called mc (for screenshots look here: http://freecode.com/projects/midnightco ... shot1.html
). MC normally gets invoked from the shell, has a variety of option by default only two panes, lets you transfer files over the network (Krusader and Gnome-Commander also allow you to do that). It is the least resource-hungry of the file managers I mentioned.
I hope this helps you at least somewhat.
