  • What exactly are you missing after having compiled twice? A "slide" is the old-fashioned framed piece of photographic film to which nowadays (without the physical frame) is referred to as "frame".

  • If I compile the code I get total 13 frames and not 3. See also golatex.de/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=23950 and than press button "LaTex-Ausgabe"

Do you want this?

\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number] 
  • Thank's! That's it. I tried "frame" instead of "page" without your first line of code. That didn't work. With the first line it works.
