    I get a different error because of the missing \begin{frame} for the latest \end{frame}. May 10 '15 at 20:04

    @MahouachiMayssa Please edit your question to give the mentioned error message. Right now, If you just add \begin{frame} for the last \end{frame}, it works error-free.

  • Sorry it was my fault I forgot \begin{frame} while typing to post the question, I checked my codes again and there is no such a missing \begin{frame}, the error is still there too.

  • The sectional commands should be outside the frames.

    section, subsection and the like.

You have code in your preamble which sets a frame the moment, you call a section. You should therefore nor put a section inside a frame here. Kind of doubled:

% arara: pdflatex

\documentclass{beamer}
\AtBeginSection[]
{%
\begin{frame}
    \frametitle{Sommaire}
\end{frame} 
}

\begin{document}        
%\begin{frame}
    \section[]{Cadre du projet et l'étude de l'existant}    
%\end{frame}
\end{document}

Btw.: The code posted here would have been sufficient for your minimal working example. For future question please try to break down the actual error.

  • thank you for the reply i guess that's the problem but I can not confirm it since it came out an other one, I'm posting new question when I fix it, I'll get back here and vote.
