I saw your posting above a few days ago.  You seem to imply that one
can convert automatically, "Compiling my latex sources to Slidy", from
LaTeX to Slidy, but it was not obvious how fromthe documentation page.

Did you do it by hand?

If it was automatic I may add it to my LaTeX page:

No, I did not. I got some help by Eitan Gutari and Victor Ivrii to do it using tex4ht. You can look at the thread "Is there a Latex package for creating html slidy presentations?" of the mailing list MacOSX-TeX <at> email.esm.psu.edu.
The procedure I followed:

Betreff: Re: [OS X TeX] Is there a Latex package for creating html slidy presentations?
Datum: 19. Oktober 2006 23:24:32 MESZ

I would like to try it myself. What do I have to do?

Let's start from the common part:

1) Go to

and get a new version of tex4ht.tar.gz and htf.zip

Put them where they belong (most important put .4ht files )

2) Create powerdot presentation (not everything is supported) foo.tex

3) Run htlatex foo.tex  "xhtml"

4) Get Slidy to your webserver. I am lazy so I made everything with
the minimal editing:

Experimental with subdirectory Slidy and I uploaded everything (html,
css, png files) into this directory.

Done (well check read permissions of all files)

As a side note, the tex4ht configurations avoid introducing
decorations to the slides.  Personalized styles can be easily
introduced with a little knowledge of CSS.  (One, of course, can also
extend/rewrite the javascript support, but it probably wouldn't be
that simple for most of us.) -eitan

Not a very elegant solution perhaps, but a possible way to do it is
to temporarily set the logo empty and then reissue to logo command
when needed:

% a slide (or a few) without logo:

\pdsetup{logocmd={}}

\begin{slide}{title} ... \end{slide}

% from now on, reinstate the logo:
\pdsetup{logocmd={\includegraphics[width=0.2\slidewidth]
{mylogo},logohook=bl,logopos={0,0}} %or whatever
...

### Re: Slides without logo

Dear Luis,

It is good idea, I am going to try it.
I thought it is possible disable the logo using a simple way, instead of
redefining it ... :)

### Re: Slides without logo

Dear Luis,

It does not work.
Now, I have no logo on the first page. (because it is not yet defined)
I define it in the line after the author or the date field.

On a slide, I don't want it to appear, I did a "\pdsetup{logocmd={}}"
command. It had no effect, I get the logo displayed again. I tried
setting the other logo parameters to zero as well, but with no success.

I don't know latex in deep, but I think in powerdot.cls it is possible
to hack somehow, what slide needs drawing that logo.

Especially, I don't want logo on title page and widepages.

Maybe, there is an other workaround, undefining some other values in the
cls file?

### Re: Slides without logo

Alex,

as stated in the docs: you'll have a logo as long as logopos is set.
You can make it empty to remove the logo. And by putting the slide in
a local group, you'll keep that effect local. See below.

-Hendri.

\documentclass{powerdot}
\pdsetup{
logohook=tr,
logopos={\slidewidth,\slideheight},
logocmd={\includegraphics[height=.11\slideheight]{powerdot-default.ps}}
}
\title{test}
\author{Hendri}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\begin{slide}{test}
\end{slide}
{
\pdsetup{logopos=}
\begin{slide}{test}
\end{slide}
}
\begin{slide}{test}
\end{slide}
\end{document}

### Re: Slides without logo

Dear Hendri,

I have checked it in the docs, and I found it in the .cls as well.
I do this in lyx and When I try to set the logopos to empty,
it has no effect.

I tried your example that works well!

I attached a very simple file with the example.

I have installed my system recently (a few days earlier) SuSe 10.1,
I have not yet customized tex, and I am using LyX 1.4.3 stable, with

Earlier, I had problems with my language extentions, but this not the
case. The file using english language. (I would like to use hungarian
later...)

Can you propose something?

You must have made a mistake as lyx runs the same code in the end.
When exported to latex, it looks a bit differently, but it does
exactly the same.

If only I had some free time, I would look at that...

### Re: Slides without logo - resolved

Dear Hendri,

I found a most common solution. I have slightly modified the
powerdot.cls to suit my needs.

I am not sure that my modifications are correct, but the behaviour
is that I would expect from the logo command, i.e. no logo on title,
wide and empty slides.

Maybe there is a much better solution, I am not a TeX master. :)
