I just learned that beamer loads amsmath and graphicx packages automatically, what other packages does it load?


1 Answer 1


Just add \listfiles to the preamble, then you will get a list in your log file: Note, beamer loads packages which then load other packages.


The output will look like, depending on the beamer and packages versions:

  • @percusse Good thought! I guess the OP would like to know the end result, including the packages beamer loads implicitly, because they will be there.
