Could you provide an example file? This might be a bug in the lyx2lyx 
converter.

Again, please post a minimal example.

 Hi
 
 Now we have the raspberry PI out,  I can perhaps use a raspberry Pi as

 if i create a presentation in beamer does this allow for auto changing
 of slides as in if I set the pi to auto boot to x, auto login and
 start a presentation,  I want it to run the presentation and when it
 gets to the end,  start over from the beginning without having to
 press a keyboard to go to next slide.
 
 Just wondered if this is possible or another package should be used.

Paul,

Look at \transduration in the the Beamer User Guide
(http://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/beamer/doc/beameruserguide.pdf)

I haven't used it myself, but it seems as if it should do what you're
asking.

Or you could use Impressive
(http://impressive.sourceforge.net/index.php)
which can be used to automate any PDF presentation.

You might need to write a simple loop in some scripting language (I'd
use Perl, but Python, bash, etc. would work) to repeat the show.

RE: Beamer question: Addional infos for Teacher

2010-03-21 Thread Ingar Pareliussen
It sound like branches are good fit for your problem. 

Make the presentation. Make new branch in Document-Setting --Branches. Make 
the changes for the students, change the document layout to handouts. Make a 
new branch and add the extra for the teachers. Choose the right branch you want 
when making the different handouts and the presentation. 

Some addition info can be fount in the lyxwiki:

Hello

im looking for a solution to make two different types of presentations  with 
beamer from one Source-document:

The first one is a normal Handout for the students.

The second one is a special handout for the teacher. The second one has 
additional informations for the teacher (examples, discussion points, facts 
that are necessary for teaching.

Is it possible to make this kind of Documents with latex beamer? Who does it 
works!

Thanks for every idea.

The following works fairly well for handouts:

1.  Insert into the preamble (Document  Settings  LaTeX Preamble) the 
command \setbeameroption{show notes}.


2.  Create a branch (Document  Settings  Branches) for the notes, 
using any name you like. Activate the branch when you are creating the 
instructor handout; deactivate it when creating the student handout or 
the actual slide show.


3.  Any place you want a note, do the following:

3a.  Create a standard environment (paragraph), which you may nest under 
an enumerated or itemized list item like any other text.


3b.  In the standard environment, insert the branch (Insert  Branch  
[select your branch]).


3c.  Inside the branch, change the environment to NoteItem and insert 
your note.


More granular control of notes is possible (Beamer user guide, section 
19) but probably requires the insertion of raw LaTeX.
