[Tex/LaTex] Texmaker doesn’t work in Ubuntu 16.04


I have tried sudo apt-get install texmaker, I have tried the software center, I have tried downloading the latest version from their website and everything results in the exact same behavior, I try to run texmaker and then it disappears from the toolbar.

I am not sure if this is a new thing or not because nothing suggested from other sources online has worked for me.

Your libsynctex1 package is too recent thus texmaker does not recognize it. Install aptitude then lookup the version then downgrade it as below:

sudo apt install aptitude
aptitude versions libsynctex1
sudo aptitude install libsynctex1=2015.20160222.37495-1
