Following code should show the problem:

\documentclass[dvipdfmx]{beamer}
\setbeamertemplate{blocks}[rounded][shadow=true]
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
  \begin{block}{a}
    a

    a
  \end{block}
  \begin{block}{b}
    b

    b

    b
  \end{block}
  \begin{block}{c}
    c
  \end{block}
  \begin{block}{d}
    d
  \end{block}

    Okay, this is linked to the fix to #161, where the change uses pgf-based code to include a real transparency. I suspect the issue is that the back-end there cannot do real transparencies with the dvipdfmx back-end. I'll have to think about this: I guess I'll end up having to go for a driver-based conditional.

    Well, I have encountered the same problem. I have to use latex + dvips (for I have to use PSTricks). I hope it will be fixed as soon as possible, for i have to give a lecture next weekend...

    Thanks.

    Back out use of real transparency of shadows

    This reopens issue #161 and closes issue #192

    The problem here is that while the code works for pdflatex, if fails with the latex + dvips + ps2pdf and latex + dvipdfmx routes. I suspect an issue here is actually with the pgf back-end, but for the moment we want something which at least works!

Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
