[Tex/LaTex] How to number slides in the beamer theme Hannover


I used the package beamer outer theme split numbered to make it for themes with navigation. But the theme Hannover is different. Is re-defining the footline the only choice, or is there some other convenient way?

Update: the solutions like




can both do the job, but not so grace as I expect. Both of them will ruin the layout of Hannover. It is better to put the page number on the bottom of the left column, or at the left side of the navigation row.

If you only want to have the slide numbers in the footer, I use this (I adapted Matthews code):

\title{Test of Hannover with slide numbers}
\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]


\item Abel
\item Baker
\item Charlie
