I have the following set up for my listings:


\usepackage{graphicx, subfig, amsmath, mathtools, lmodern, listings, lipsum, courier}

\definecolor{darkred}{rgb}{0.7, 0, 0}
\definecolor{darkgreen}{rgb}{0, 0.4, 0}
\definecolor{navy}{rgb}{0, 0, 0.5}
\definecolor{purple}{rgb}{0.45, 0, 0.45}
\definecolor{codebg}{rgb}{0.95, 0.95, 0.95}



    struct employee
        char name [64] ;
        long employee_id;
        float salary;
        char phone[10];
        int office_number;


And it produces enter image description here

But I want it to be courier font. What is wrong with my latex source code?

Change the beginning of the frame to:


If you have to do this for many frames, you can alternatively add these lines to your preamble:


Alternatively, you can compile with xelatex, loading the fontspec package.

    Thank you for your answer! Now code looks great, but the \fontencoding{T1}\selectfont conflicts with russian language and I can't add comments in russian to the slides with code. Second option you offered unfortunately doesn't work at all:C

  • Do you mean \AtBeginEnvironment?

  • Yes, \AtBeginEnvironment doesn't change a thing. I found out everything works okay if I switch from T1 to T2A when I need russian and then back again to use listings. Kinda 'dirty' solution, but still fine)

    I had a typo in my initial code: I wrote \AtBeginEnvironment{listings} with an s. Without an s, it should work. For the problem of comments, perhaps a begin{russian} … \end{russian} should do the trick. That said, with xelatex, you don't have to use font encodings, and it should compile smoothly.
