Compilation of Presentation fails

Postby amyekut » Sat Sep 07, 2013 4:22 pm

Hi,

I am having trouble with the beamer package in PDFLaTeX on my current installation. Previously all was well; and presently other LaTeX packages are OK.

Even a small sample file generates a lot of errors.
  1. \documentclass{beamer}
  2.  
  3. \begin{document}
  4.  
  5. \begin{frame}
  6. frame 1
  7. TaTATATATta atatata $1234r$
  8. \end{frame}
  9.  
  10. \begin{frame}
  11. frame 2
  12. TaTATATATta atatata $1234r$
  13. \end{frame}
  14.  
  15. \end{document}


My system is openSUSE 12.3 with TeX Live 2013 from the distributions repositories. Here is the top of the log file.

  1. This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (TeX Live 2013/TeX Live for opensuse.org)
  2. restricted \write18 enabled.
  3. entering extended mode

  8. (/home/amyekut/texmf/tex/latex/beamer/base/beamerbasercs.sty)
  9. Runaway argument?

  18. n \ETC.
  19. ! Paragraph ended before \beamer@parseid was complete.
  20. <to be read again>
  21. \par
  22. l.15

The full log file is attached.

Please help.

It seems that you have a CVS version of the beamer class which seems to cause the trouble. I wonder why the repository delivered it. Did you try to retrieve the recent package version from the »Publishing:TeXLive« repository by YaST?

Have you thought about installing a vanilla TeX Live instead of the version that openSUSE ships? The version from openSUSE misses the TLmgr (TeX Live Manager) for maintaining the system and updating packages. I run that vanilla system and it works fine.

I do have the latest from the SUSE repository.

Will try this.

Just to be sure: do you mean the package supplied by
http://www.tug.org/texlive/ ?
What is the best installation method on my SUSE system?

Thanks,

Amnon

All seems well now. I added the "PATH=..." line to .profile, did a logout+login, and now OK.


Hi,

I installed the "vanilla" TEXLIVE, and it works well! But only from a terminal.

Now KILE refuses to work: the PDFLATEX gives "failed to start" message. (OKULAR does work!)

Any idea what to do?
