I am new here...

Trying to work on a beamerposter, I am getting the error:

! LaTeX Error: File `beamerthemecpbgposter.sty' not found.

While using this template from here:


What is the problem?

    Did you copied all the doc in the local folder or only poster.tex? – Romain Picot Oct 7 '15 at 7:00

Since the file beamerthemecpbgposter.sty is in the git repository you should have it on your local folder.

You can clone the repository with:

git clone https://github.com/brookst/poster.git ./

All the files will be copied in the current folder. After this a compilation will not raised this error.

If this error is still present, your LaTeX execution should not contain the working directory.

  • @mico I've compiled it with TL2009 without any trouble. The poster.tex your trying to compile is the one in the same folder as every files and not the first one? – Romain Picot Oct 7 '15 at 8:06
