# Beamer: footer with current slide number but not total slide number

I am using infolines as outer theme and I like it. I would like just to display the current slide number without the total slide number (i.e. instead of "n / N" just "n") in the bottom right corner, keeping the rest of the layout provided by infolines.

How can I achieve this?

Does the following post provide a solution: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/13223/…? That is, using: \setbeamertemplate{footline}{\insertframenumber} –  Werner Oct 26 '11 at 18:05
Thanks for your comment, Werner. However, your code inserts JUST a number and deletes the rest of the formatting. I'd like to keep the footer provided by infolines, just instead of having "n/N" I'd like "n" –  Danilo Oct 26 '11 at 18:09

You can redefine set the footline beamer template in a way similar to the original definition in the file beamerouterthemeinfolines.sty, but suppressing / \inserttotalframenumber:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Warsaw}
\useoutertheme{infolines}

\makeatletter
\setbeamertemplate{footline}
{
\leavevmode%
\hbox{%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\end{beamercolorbox}}%
\vskip0pt%
}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}Test\end{frame}
\begin{frame}Test\end{frame}
\begin{frame}Test\end{frame}

\end{document}
