Everything here should be considered "under development" and I welcome contributions (or someone else taking over).  What is here just slowly evolved from presentations I have given myself.

I have attempted to come up with some Debian beamer themes, for use with LaTeX-Beamer

My philosophy in making these was to use as much that came with Beamer as possible, and just define a color scheme and logos on top of it. This means that the theme consists of lines below, which you can copy and paste.

You need to pick your own layout theme from among those which Beamer distributes. For demos of all of the Beamer themes, coupled with the color themes below, see http://rkd.zgib.net/http/debianbeamerthemes/.

I got the debianred and debianblue colors from the Debian website. If you are involved in the graphic design of Debian, contact me and I will update the colors to whatever is better. I am not a graphic designer by any means!

Everything here should be considered "under development" and I welcome contributions (or someone else taking over). What is here just slowly evolved from presentations I have given myself.

Right now the themes are distributed as the commands below to copy and paste, because a) they are so trivial it's hardly worth a package b) it is not stable. At this level of development, I don't think the incompatibilities (with systems which don't have the theme installed) and future changes make a package worth it. I invite anyone to use what is below to create a real package once you feel that it is worth it.

Logos

To put a light Debian swirl in the background, download this file and use

\usebackgroundtemplate{\includegraphics[width=\paperwidth]{swirl-lightest}}

To put a small Debian logo in the theme's defined logo location, download this file and then the command below. If you have a project that has it's own logo, you should put that project's logo here, instead.

\logo{\includegraphics[viewport=274 335 360 440,width=1cm]{openlogo-nd.pdf}}

Color theme

For all color themes, define these colors:

\definecolor{debianred}{rgb}{.749,.071,.220} % 190,18,56
\definecolor{debianblue}{rgb}{0,0,.518} % 0,0,132

There are different themes I have developed. I would be happy to communicate with people and pick one or to to be "the" themes, to make things more standardized.

FIXME You can preview all of the themes by clicking on their titles

Red Pink

This is my favorite, because it is light and low key.

\usecolortheme[named=debianred]{structure}
\setbeamercolor{normal text}{fg=debianblue}
\setbeamercolor{titlelike}{fg=debianblue}
\setbeamercolor{palette primary}{bg=debianred!50!white}
\setbeamercolor{sidebar}{bg=debianred}

Red White

This is what most people have considered best.

\usecolortheme[named=debianred]{structure}
\setbeamercolor{normal text}{fg=debianblue}
\setbeamercolor{titlelike}{fg=debianblue}
\setbeamercolor{sidebar}{bg=debianred}

Red Blue

\usecolortheme[named=debianred]{structure}
\setbeamercolor{normal text}{fg=debianblue}
\setbeamercolor{titlelike}{fg=debianblue}
\setbeamercolor{sidebar}{bg=debianred}

Blue Pink

This has the sidebar as a light blue color.

\usecolortheme[named=debianred]{structure}
\setbeamercolor{normal text}{fg=debianblue}
\setbeamercolor{titlelike}{fg=debianblue}
\setbeamercolor{palette primary}{bg=debianred!50!white}
\setbeamercolor{sidebar}{bg=debianblue!75!black}
