"Hyperref option clash"

So I instead that


But it doesn't work.

Is that beamer class conflict with hyperref package?

you probably have another package or the document class loading the hyperref package. compilable MWE would help here. However you could try adding before your \documentclass{} call the line \PassOptionsToPackage{bookmarks=false}{hyperref}. – ArTourter May 6 '12 at 12:41

The beamer class doesn't conflict with the hyperref package, but it already loads that package with different options. You could use \PassOptionsToPackage to specify options before the class and hyperref are loaded:

@egreg: Yes, I would expect that. However, the OP tried that. Furthermore, I mentioned this general approach because it could be used for other packages, which don't provide such a convenient \...setup command as hyperref does. – Stefan Kottwitz May 6 '12 at 12:47
