I have awfully lot of troubles trying to make just a simple centered heading using beamerposter package. I am totally lost. Could you please provide any minimal working example?

Of course, I've been at simple examples like in here and have read questions like this one but I still don't get it. It seem to me that without an undecypherable *.sty it just doesn't work. Am I missing a simple solution?

Note: I've tried the answer from this question but it didn't work for me. Maybe if there could be something without mwe?

  • What does " it didn't work for me." means exactly. Do you have beamerposter.sty installed in your machine? – Gonzalo Medina Aug 28 '15 at 14:58
  • Yes, I do. It was a problem with includegraphics. I've fixed that already. But is this cheat the only way to make the simple heading? – Victor Pira Aug 28 '15 at 15:07
  • No. I'll add a simple example below. – Gonzalo Medina Aug 28 '15 at 15:14

Here's a simple example; the textpos package was used to place the blocks at desired locations:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Frankfurt}
\usepackage[orientation=landscape,size=a0,scale=1.4,debug]{beamerposter}
\usepackage[absolute,overlay]{textpos}
\setlength{\TPHorizModule}{1cm}
\setlength{\TPVertModule}{1cm}

\begin{block}{A test block}
