Dear Gérald,

I tried your example on Texlive2009 and I have no trouble. Attached files are seminar.con and semainar.bg3 (mine) I used to compile my old presentations. No I have moved to powerdot which much simpler to use and gives very good results.

Best regards,

Here is a complete example, but it seems important, I use seminar.con and
sem-dem.sty files from Denis Girou .


\def\SeminarColorVersion{y} % To force the color or black/white version
\def\SeminarPaperVersion{n} % To force the paper or screen version
\documentclass[10pt, dvips, dvipsnames]{seminar}





Best regards
