[Tex/LaTex] How to use a LaTeX beamer (template)


This is a really stupid question (I know) but I can't figure out how to get this LaTeX beamer template: http://blog.barisione.org/2007-09/torino-a-pretty-theme-for-latex-beamer/

I get a tar-file and zip it. But how to use the template? When I click on it I just get into a lot of different files.

Thank you very much in advance.

Please read the Beamer user manual. A Beamer theme is a file with the name beamertheme<name>.sty. The Torino theme is called beamerthemeTorino.sty. Place this and the other files in the directory where you are working. In your Beamer document write this command:


and write your presentation as usual.

If you want to use the theme in several presentations, unpack the files in your TEXMF tree (the directory where all TeX builtin stuff is stored), and run texhash to update the filename database.
