Description W. Michael Petullo 2012-04-20 23:28:55 UTC
Description of problem:
I am trying to create a poster using beamerposter. The poster uses the listings package for source listings. Trying to generate a PDF using pdflatex fails as noted below.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:



Actual results:
pdflatex poster
orem-dictionary/translator-theorem-dictionary-English.dict) (./poster.nav))
Runaway argument?
! File ended while scanning use of \next.
<inserted text> 
<*> poster

Expected results:
pdflatex should generate the poster.

Additional info:
It seems that the fragile option to frame does not like columns. But fragile is required to use the listings package effectively.

Comment 1 W. Michael Petullo 2012-09-10 02:46:36 UTC
This seems fixed in the current Fedora 17 TeX Live 2012 packages (http://jnovy.fedorapeople.org/texlive/2012/packages.fc17/), but I do not presently have Fedora 16 available to test.

Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2012-10-07 08:19:40 UTC
Confirming it is fixed by TeX Live 2012. It is currently included in rawhide.
