Postby anselm » Wed Sep 15, 2010 6:25 pm

I just make some with frame but it is running. this is the error message TeXwork:

  8. ! LaTeX Error: File `beamer.cls' not found.
  9.  
  10. Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,

I also try in TexmakerX and still got the not found message.
I check if beamer was correctly install via MikTeX package manager and the lastest Beamer Package is there.
Please some help.

Another editor certainly won't help because this problem is related to the installation of the LaTeX system. It seems that something has gone wrong during package installation. Try to uninstall the package and then reinstall it with the MiKTeX Package Manager. Afterwards you can check on the command line if the package is found in the installation tree.
  1. kpsewhich beamer.cls


As soon as the problem is solved, please act exactly according to Section 3 of the Board Rules.


Best regards and welcome to the board

I have resolved the problem through these steps-

1. Opened the "Settings(admin)" (MiKTex Maintenance(admin))
2. Checked Update Formats, it found some packages those need to be updated
3. Then updated the packages
4. At the end I have pressed "Refresh FNDB" ( I think it is optional though)

Thank you both for your help.
I must Apologize though because the problem was my own.
The problem is that just recently I was having a problem with my dvi viewer and I uninstalled MikteX from the ProteX distribution and reinstalled it from the internet independently. I assume that some classic like beamer was directly installed because I don't have the problem I posted on my laptop where I didn't do any manipulation. Bref I just realised this morning that Beamer package was not install though it was clearly specified "packaged on" with "installed on" empty.
Sorry again and thank,

So, if this problem is solved now, please be so kind and mark the topic accordingly as you have already been directed and as clearly written in the Board Rules (to be read before posting).
