Hi, there, my question is a little off the theme, but I do not have other options. Could someone help me install beamer under Miktex? I already have Miktex intalled, now I wanna install Beamer; the manual says as follows: 2.2.2 MiKTeX For MiKTEX, use the update wizard to install the (latest versions of the) packages called latex-beamer, pgf, and xcolor. but it don't work. thanks a lot! samn _________________________________________________________________ Hotmail: Powerful Free email with security by Microsoft. https://signup.live.com/signup.aspx?id=60969 * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ |
You would probably do better to take your question to a dedicated
LaTeX forum, e.g.: http://www.latex-community.org/ However, you are probably best off using MikTeX Update Wizard as recommended. You can do this in a number of ways, including typing c:\> mpm at a standard command prompt (provided the MiKTeX binaries folder is in your path - you can check by typing c:\> path at the command prompt). Or you can access it directly from your Windows Start Menu under the MikTeX group of programs (it is called "Update"). Else, you can download Beamer from here: http://latex-beamer.sourceforge.net/ and put it in your MikTeX directory "../MiKTeX2.8/tex/latex/". Also, see above link for an example of how to use it once installed.

Isn't beamer included in the Miktex distribution? I use it and I'm
pretty sure I never downloaded it anywhere separately (I use Miktex 2.7).

Indeed. You can easily test whether you can avoid the hassle by
compiling a skeleton Beamer document (as from the link above - http://latex-beamer.sourceforge.net/) : %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{beamerthemesplit} \title{Example Presentation Created with the Beamer Package} \author{Till Tantau} \date{\today} \begin{document} \frame{\titlepage} \section[Outline]{} \frame{\tableofcontents} \section{Introduction} \subsection{Overview of the Beamer Class} \frame { \frametitle{Features of the Beamer Class} \begin{itemize} \item<1-> Normal LaTeX class. \item<2-> Easy overlays. \item<3-> No external programs needed. \end{itemize} } \end{document} %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% T 2010/4/16 Nils Braakmann <[hidden email]>: > Isn't beamer included in the Miktex distribution?

<> " My Miktex is WinEdt," WinEdt is probably your editor, quite distinct from your Miktex installation. You should look at the directories in some path like "C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.7".

The " .../MiKTeX2.8/tex/latex/" in your case could be " .../MiKTeX2.2/tex/latex/" (I'm guessing).
I don't know about MiKTeX 2.2, but for me (MiKTeX 2.7 or 2.8 and Windows) MiKTeX came with a program called Browse Packages. If I want a package, I open Browse Packages, find the package, press the "+", and that's it. I might then go to Settings program > General > Refresh FNDB and Update Formats. This step might not be necessary if you use the Browse Packages, but I do think it's necessary if you install the packages on your own.
