Installing a font

this all confuses me greatly...
I can't really seem to get anywhere... how do I figure out what latex versions are installed? and which one is being used?

Installing a font

I installed "manually" using this guide: https://www.tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html

Basically I ran the installer:
  1. sudo ./install-tl


And then set the PATH-thingy:

  1. PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2018/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATH



The OS I am using Kubuntu 18.04

Making a custom environment

Hi, here is what I am trying to do. I want parts of my document to be "separated" (for lack of a better word) from the rest of the text. Think of a history book that has original letters or speeches from the time in a separate box. Not actually part of the text but providing additional det...
