 Put the .sty file in ~/texmf/tex/latex/beamer (create the directory if
 necessary). Open a terminal there and run 'texhash'.  Then add the usepackage
 command to the preamble of your LyX presentation and you should be good to go.

Hi all,

I'm writing a presentation using beamer, lyx 1.63, window...

What I would like to do in TEX, or internally in LyX, is the following:

\begin{frame}handout:0
\frametitle{A title bla bla bla}
*Some content. bla bla bla
*\end{frame}


Some times it works, some times it doesn't, and I get the ERROR

Can anyone give me a hint ??



The file does not exist error probably means LaTeX blew up trying to 
compile the document; check Document  LaTeX log to see if there's an 
error message.  Assuming you put handout:0 in ERT at the very 
beginning of the frame title, it seems that it should work, barring a 
bug in Beamer.


All else failing, you might try putting the frames to be suppressed in a 
branch of the LyX doc, then deactivate that branch for handouts 
(activate for slide shows).  I just ran a quick test, and it worked fine 
for me.

Hi Erez,

You can use handout option of Beamer, but it sometimes fails to
exclude overlays. So, what I usually do is to use PDFjam
(http://www.warwick.ac.uk/go/pdfjam) after creating PDF. It includes
an executable called pdfnup which should be called something like:

pdfnup --nup 3x3 --paper a4paper --orient landscape \
 --trim -5mm -5mm -5mm -5mm --tidy true (source PDF file)

If you want to pick up some frames, you can specify an option, e.g.
--pages 1-10,15,19-20.
