# Where is beamer.sty?

Every time I try to make a beamer presentation (using the version that came with my TeX distribution), it asks me for beamer.sty. Which isn't in the official repo for beamer. Arrgh. Has anybody got a solution?

Complementary to the answers search for beamer.cls and you'll find it which means latex interprets it as a class even though your TeX distro downloads it as a package. – percusse Sep 19 '12 at 21:14
cd /usr/local/texlive/2012 and then find -name "*.cls"|grep 'beamer' – cmhughes Sep 19 '12 at 22:27
