renewenvironment<> working?

Has anyone used the \renewenvironment<> successfully?

I'd like to add a slide after each frame, for my handouts.
The new slide is just a bunch of horizontal lines.

So I thought of renewing the frame environment with:

==========================================
\renewenvironment<>{frame}[1][]
{%
\begin{originalframe}#1%
}%
{%
\end{originalframe}%
\begin{originalframe} ...my horinzontal lines... \end{originalframe}%
}
==========================================

but I get:

==========================================
! Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup.
\endoriginalframe ->\egroup
                             \begingroup \def \ <at> currenvir {frame}
l.11 \end{frame}
==========================================

Has somebody an idea of what it means, and eventually a way to add an  
extra slide to each of my slides for horizontal lines (notes)?
(Note: I already use the notes mode for myself so I can't just

does beamer work with xelatex?

Hello 

I tried to use beamer latex with xelatex (because of the wide range of
ttf fonts which are supported by xelatex.)

However I run into error messages of the sort:

! Package pgfsys Error: Driver file ``pgfsys-xetex.def'' not found..

See the pgfsys package documentation for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
 ...                                              

l.847 ...ver file ``\pgfsysdriver'' not found.}{}}

Is there any solution?

Thanks

There have been a few xelatex post to the pgf-users mailing list.
Maybe you can find some hints there:

Thanks I tried it in ubuntu 7.14 and there is works.

However what does not work is the selection of the fonts.

For example in a normal latex file the following lines
\usepackage{fontspec}

\setmainfont{Purisa}

Use the purisa font. However in beamer that seems to be ignored and the
"classical latex" fonts reminds.

Does it work if you add this to your document preamble?

\usefonttheme{professionalfonts}

Shading questions

Hello,
I have 2 questions related to shading.

1 - I obtain a nice *vertical* gradient on slides with the following :
--->>>\setbeamertemplate{background canvas} [vertical shading][top=red,  
middle=black, bottom=white]

whereas it does not work at all when I try *horizontal* shading with a 
similar instruction:
--->>>\setbeamertemplate{background canvas} [horizontal 
shading][left=red, middle=black, right=white]

2- Also, it seems I cannot obtain a gradient when one of the colors is 
purposefully defined, i.e.
---->>>\setbeamertemplate{background canvas} {\begin{tikzpicture} \shade 
[top color=red,bottom color=blue](0,0) rectangle 
(128mm,96mm);\end{tikzpicture}}
works well,

whereas with the following instructions, slides are separated in 2 
halves with 2 different colors rather than by a gradient.

\definecolor[named]{colorblue}{RGB}{9,51,123}
\setbeamertemplate{background canvas} {\begin{tikzpicture} \shade [top 
color=red,bottom color=colorblue](0,0) rectangle 
(128mm,96mm);\end{tikzpicture}}

Any clue ?
Thanks
Jacques

zoomframe border color


Hi All,

I tried to change the border color of the zoomed area in a picture. When I
use the standard command:
\zoomframe<1><2>[border](2.0cm,3.0cm)(2.5cm,1.5cm)
I get an blue frame around the area specified with the above coordinates.
I tried to change the color with the \hypersetup-command:
\hypersetup{linkbordercolor={0.1 0.4 0.31}}
the numbers representing the rgb-values of the desired color, but nothing
happend. I tried this command in the preample, after ,,\begin{document} and
even inside the frame-environment. There was no way of changing the border
color.

Does somebody has a solution for this problem?
Thanks in advance,
                               tl017

No it did not help. But just putting a simple

\rm

After \begin{document} did the job

Doesn't beamer use the sans serif family as the main font? I would try
\setsansfont{Purisa}.
