Quick start on latex beamer [Ubuntu]

Beamer is a Tex class to make slide presentations. The advantages of Beamer over PowerPoint or OpenOffice:
  • If you are creating slides from a larger document, you can simply re-use your LaTeX source material from that document.
  • If you need mathematical content in your slides, you have the wealth of mathematical constructs in LaTeX to draw upon.
  • The slides you create are multi-platform.
Installation on Ubuntu
$ sudo apt-get install latex-beamer

Create your own slides from a template
A good template can be found here. Note: compile it by PdfLatex, or press F6 in TexMaker.
