Issue #50 resolved

beamer user guide doesn't compile correctly

Anonymous created an issue

I have MiKTeX 2.8 running on 64-bit Windows 7. The most recent versions of beamer, pgf, and xcolor are installed.

I wanted to look at documentation. So, I downloaded the beamer distribution 3.09 and tried to compile the file


The document will compile but will not include any of the graphics. In places where there should be graphics in the pdf output, there is a box containing the words "pgflastimage1" or "pgflastimage2".

I tried this on three different computers on which MiKTeX was correctly installed and on which other beamer slide presentations correctly compile.

    Well, this is not a bug. If you want to make it work, you have at least two options:

    1. install GNU toolchain (cygwin) and use make to compile Beamer user guide, or
    2. read what the Makefile does and do everything manually.

    Hope it helps.
