comment Removing slide numbers in the Madrid theme
@Leeser You shouldn't put the file in "the same place as the other outerthemes" since that is modifying your TeX distribution. It's best to put local beamer additions on a Mac in ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/beamer. If you don't have such a directory, you can use this script to create the basic structure. See How do I add a .sty file to my MacTeX/TeXShop installation?.

What a wonderful word. English really doesn't have such an evocative equivalent.

comment fontspec features not working correctly in floating environment
I can replicate the problem using fontspec 2012/05/06 v2.2b and LuaTeX Version beta-0.70.2-2012062819 which is the latest version available through normal channels I think.

comment Using Terminal to run LaTeX commands
If @John is using a standard MacTeX installation, he won't have a /opt directory, since that is installed by MacPorts. The standard path for TeX binaries in MacTeX is /usr/texbin. It's possible that John's path is set incorrectly in the terminal. Similarly, Spotlight is usually set not to index system files, so it usually won't find TeX related files by default.

comment Using Terminal to run LaTeX commands
Chances are you don't need to run latex from the terminal to do this. You might want to check out the latexmk Engine for TeXShop. See All-in-one-engine for TeXShop.

comment What are the advantages of TeXShop over TeXworks?
@chang Very simply, if your .bib file is open in BibDesk, and you've allowed BibDesk completions in the TeXShop preferences, you can enter in your source \cite{foo and then hit Escape (or Tab depending on preference) and a list of all citation keys beginning with "foo" will appear as a drop down list next to the cursor. You then choose the right one and it gets inserted into your source.

comment Natbib package error? Bibliography not compatible with author-year citations
@Juan natbib is really designed to be used with bibtex. So you shouldn't be entering bibliography entries by hand, but into a separated .bib file which bibtex uses to generate the bibliography items. See the Bibliographies section of the answer to this question: What TeX software to write technical papers with.

comment How do I change footnote in Beamer?
Can you post a minimal example that shows the problem. The default numbering for footnotes in Beamer is numeric, not alphabetic.

comment Windows-Terminal commands to have information about LaTeX distribution
@projetmbc If you have a TeX distribution installed, you have kpsewhich; if you don't have one you won't have it. I don't think there's a surefire way to check that a distribution is 'complete' (if that's even a well formed idea), but just testing for the existence of the TeX binaries should be enough to verify that you have one.
