Wuerzburg Beamer Theme

I’ve received a few enquiries about the Beamer theme of my MOSC2011 slides. This beautiful, subtle theme is wuerzburg (scroll down to “LaTeX Beamer Themes”), created by Christian Gogolin.

Basic usage and the output:


Depending on your mood, you might want to go for a more ‘polished’ feel:

Another Beamer Thingy: Internet Malicious Miscreants

Tomorrow will be the last day of Malaysian Open Source Conference (MOSC 2010) where in this three days event I got a chance to talk on something which perhaps everybody knows about : Malicious Software and friends.
Anyway, the following is my PDF slides, ready for download here . In future, perhaps I considering drawing diagram using Tikz (again), but this one, maybe with something which I really love to draw.

My first presentation with LaTeX

I spent my precious nites doing these stuffs. Everything went well except I didn’t compiled my *.tex twice so that my Tikz arrows drawn perfectly.

Next 6th Nov I’ll be going to present another talk.. I hope I can avoid such problem again.

Tex Source
My Presentation Slides [HTML]
My Slides [PDF, 70 slides since I did some overlays]

You can refer my .tex file and do whatever changes that you want… but I’ll be happy if you tell me where will you present your talk using my so called *masterpiece* 😀

By the way, I converted those Beamer PDFs using external command, that is gs

I tweak some recommendations here

So, what I did was;

gs -dNOPAUSE -g1024x768 -r205 -sDEVICE=pngalpha -sOutputFile=./temp/slide_%02d.png -dBATCH beamer-foss-my-09.pdf cd temp/new/

//02d since this will correctly numbers your slides sequence from 00,01,10,11.. otherwise it will assume 1,11,10 is within the same order(as you can see, in the link that I gave before it doesn’t stated that… so “man gs” did helped 🙂

for i in *.png; do convert -resize 600 $i temp/new/$i ; done

//you need to install ImageMagick package to do this.. “convert” command will resize the initially generated PNG from gs to smaller size. I did tried to set smaller size in gs command but seems it just bring partial of the slides into smaller pieces…

igal2 -r *.png -xy 300 -w 4
//this will create HTML galleries, initially the tool named “igal”

Some components of my *.tex file were adapted from texample.net …

KDE Beamer Themes

FOSS.my is this Friday, and even though I can’t attend, perhaps there are some presenters who’d be interested to use Beamer to prepare their presentations, and perhaps using KDE themes: you can download the theme packages (.sty and .png files) from that link there. Once downloaded, put them in your TEXMF tree (~/texmf/tex/latex on TeXLive and MikTeX, ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex on MacTeX), and refresh it (use the MikTeX control panel; or run texhash if you’re using TeXLive. If using MacTeX, you won’t need to manually run texhash or anything).

By the way, you’ll find templates for OOImpress and KPresenter via that link, too.

To use the Oxygen-style theme:





Sample output:

To use the Air theme and the output:


There’s also a PNG image which can be used as background for presentations at the link above (desenho.png). To use this with the default beamer theme, do:


Happy LaTeXing!

Latex beamer and blocks


\frametitle{Portable Object (PO) files}



\item It’s a raw, untranslated file

\item Created automatically using gettext package

\item Ready to be translated




produce this :


\begin{alertblock}{gettext in short}
\item Part of GNU packages
\item Enables internationalization of software
\item Enables the creation of Portable Object (PO) file
\alert{\emph{Portable Object?}}

produce this :


\frametitle{Machine Object (MO) files}



\item \alert {Compiled file}, derived from PO

\item It’s a binary, thus \emph{machine readable}




produce this:

Good luck !

Latex Beamer untuk “presentation”

Kebiasaannya kita menggunakan Microsoft Power Point, atau OpenOfficeImpress, dan mungkin juga KOffice.

Latex juga mempunyai pakej presentation iaitu Beamer.

Ia boleh dicapai di sini

Bagi pengguna Ubuntu semudah apt-get install latex-beamer dan boleh gunakannya sekarang!

Kelebihannya ialah apabila kita telah selesai menulis katakan laporan di dalam format latex, hanya beberapa tune up yang perlu dilakukan untuk membolehkan fail latex tersebut dialihkan ke frame Latex beamer tersebut
