Dear all,

I was updating a set of slides for a lecture I have to do and 
I encountered the following mistake during typesetting:

estructurebold.sty)) (./Untitled.aux)
[Loading MPS to PDF converter (version 2006.09.02).]
*geometry* driver: auto-detecting
*geometry* detected driver: pdftex
./Untitled.tex:9: Undefined control sequence.
\Gm at lmargin ->\Geom at lmargin 

l.9 \begin{document}

The same file worked perfectly about three weeks ago (when I started to write it).

So I tried with my linux box with the same error. 

Well, maybe something is changed and I have just to simplify my 
preamble.... let me try first with a standard example.... 
but using the example on sourceforge (see the bottom of this message) 
I got the same problem. 

Do you have the same problem ?
