I have upgraded to TeXStudio 2.6.6 via the package manager in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS since the one in the repository was way too old. However, when I launch the application and try to open a file or check Latex installation an error box appears as I added here. Furthermore, when I click OK the system crashes and I cannot open the terminal or close TeXStudio leaving me with no choice but to restart the computer by holding the power button. I have tried reinstalling and uninstalling multiple times with no solution and would greatly appreciate any help and suggestions provided.

EDIT: The problem is solved I found a dictionary with featuring two files one with .aff extension and the other with .dic extension. However, I am still puzzled about how a missing dictionary in a program can crash the whole system. Thanks in advance

## Installed Texlive 2013, Texstudio and Texmaker runs into Problems

EDIT: Thanks for the provided link it looks very comprehensive. I have resolved my issue it Fontin font by I compiling the source with XeLaTeX after installing fonts in TTF format by downloading them from http://www.exljbris.com/fontin.html and double clicking. The other issue is also solved after modifying the quick build command and everything works fine. I appreciate your help.

I have performed a net installation for Texlive2013 according to the instructions given in the URL: http://tug.org/texlive/acquire-netinstall.html. I have complied with the all the instructions given in the quick installation guide and the documentation part; after the installation part was finished I set the environmental variables as written. I have later installed Texstudio and tried to compile a document and the program failed quited abruptly writing the following in the command prompt which was open at that time :

Format encoding version mismatch : [found] != [expected]1.0
"\name" : ""
"\title" : ""
ASSERT: "(buildManager.quickmode == 8)" in file texmaker.cpp, line 3555
Aborted (core dumped)


After this issue I also installed Texmaker; however complaining with the following error message it failed to compile the same file.

grep: Fontin.log: No such file or directory mktextfm: mf-nowin -progname=mf \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input Fontin' failed to make Fontin.tfm. kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.


I am particularly new to Latex and I could not pinpoint these issues arose. I would appreciate it if someone could provide some guidance help on these matters. In addition to that the processor start to strains to do something until I abort Texmaker with a keyboard shortcut such as Ctrl+C from the terminal. The source file that caused troubles in both programs is as follows:
