Once Tex Live 2016 hits [extra], I will submit this package, and the non-git version, for deletion.

Note: texlive-latexextra 2016.41473-1 (currently in [testing]) includes metropolis in /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/beamertheme-metropolis.

If you have a TeX Live 2016 installation, it is not necessary to install this package, as it now bundles metropolis.

This package doesn't seem to actually provide the metropolis theme beamer .sty files (at least not in a place that LaTeX or I can find)

The Makefile appears to have changed. It now expects DESTDIR instead of TEXMFHOME, else the package will wind up being empty.

It would be better to name the packages as "metropolis" as the author has called it.

@heitzmann It installs the same thing. It was a very unfortunate choice of name, "theme-m" considering the original author called it mtheme or metropolis! So I did not find it and went ahead. The only difference is that my PKGBUILD take advantage of a pull request of mine accepted by the original author which makes the staging a tiny bit cleaner. But valandil has the anteriority and could very well take advantage of that new feature too. So I guess I shall remove my package then…

What is the difference between this and https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/beamer-theme-m-git/ ?

Thanks! I just love this theme and your package makes its installation simple :-)

valandil commented on 2015-09-01 20:02

You are right. It did work for me as I had installed another version of this package in /usr/share/texmf-dist. Nice catch!

On my system, this package installs the theme files directly in /usr/share[/tex/latex/mtheme], instead of /usr/share/texmf-dist[/tex/latex/mtheme].

It is then not found when I compile a beamer presentation. To make the theme work, I had to manually create a symlink where the theme should have been installed, and update the cache :

# cd /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex
# ln -s /usr/share/tex/latex
# texhash

I think the root folder should be given by $(kpsewhich -var-value=TEXMFDIST) instead of $(kpsewhich -var-value=TEXMFROOT)
