I try with following code, but have many errors... Am I need to install special things for create presentation? It has any special steps for starting and executing? I tried a lot. But, I could't run a simple code so far....

\documentclass[ Options]{prosper}
\title{ aa}
\subtitle{ ss}
\author{ ccc} 
\institution{ssf }
\slideCaption{sfsf }

\begin{slide} [transition] { title }
Material for the slide

\begin{slide} [transition] {  title }
Material for the slide
  • Did you run it with these 'fillers' in (such as Options), or did you use real values here? – Joseph Wright May 11 '13 at 13:09

    The prosper class is old and has largely been replaced by the powerdot class. However, both of these classes require compilation with latex+dvips (as opposed to pdflatex) since they make extensive use of Postscript commands. If you've never used a LaTeX presentation class before, I would recommend beamer over powerdot. Most people here prefer it. See Which package to use for presentations ? Beamer, Prosper, or Other for some discussion. – Alan Munn May 11 '13 at 13:09

    The beamer manual has a wonderful tutorial. See also Simple Beamer Template for Total Beginners. – Alan Munn May 11 '13 at 14:16

    @Emalka: beamerwas made for pdflatex, so just run pdflatex on the file. If you have to use pstricks in your slides, have a look at powerdot. – Uwe Ziegenhagen May 11 '13 at 15:16

As mentioned in the comments above prosper is pretty outdated. Have a look at the following beamerexample.



\author{Jane Doe}
\title{My first presentation}


\section{First section}


\frametitle{Hello World}

\item abcde
\item fghij
\item klmno

\item 1234
\item 5678
\item 9012
