Problem with beamer and pgfpages using current version of texlive

created an issue


Sorry, if this bug shall be reported to texlive or pgf.

Today i have upgraded my debian-linux (unstable) to a current version of texlive (2011/2012). Before that, i have used version 2009. As an additional info: i have to use the latex -> dvips -> ps2pdf workflow to create my presentations, as i also need psfrag.

Since upgrade beamer and pgfpages are not compatible anymore. The physical page width/height is not updated to the geometry specified in the pgf-layout. With version 2009 of texlive everything has been working correct. Curiously, I realized that the pure pdflatex workflow with texlive (2011/12) is working as expected!

This happens with beamer 3.10 (i have tried 3.15 as well) and pgf 2.10.

Best regards Volker Christian

    Hi, thank you for your reply and sorry for my late reply!

    Here is a small examle: Please TeX it once with pdflatex and once with the latex-dvips-ps2pdf workflow. If you can recognize differences between the results, you will see what i mean. If you don't notice differences, than my installation is somewhat broken. For me, the result after pdflatex is correct ...

    Currently my environment looks like: OS: Debian unstable TeXLive: 10.4.2012

    After downgrading TeXLive to a previous version (i think it was a 2009-version -- yes, pretty old, i know, but debian didn't offer a more recent version other than those from 2012) everything works like a charm!

    Best regards Volker Christian

    I've gone back over our history to the first updates by Vedran: no sign of any change in the behaviour. So this is not due to a change in beamer: it must be pgf. That makes it INVALID for us, sorry.
