Remove navigation bullets from beamer theme

Postby tehingo on Tue May 3rd, 2011

The navigation bullets that are displayed for some beamer themes by default are very neat for short presentations. For my long talk, however, they look out of place and there are just overwhelmingly many. Here is is a screenshot:

I would like to get rid of them and place a slide-number somewhere on the page. How is that possible?

Minimal example:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass[compress, final]{beamer}
    \usetheme[height=0mm]{Rochester}
    \usecolortheme{dolphin}
    \useinnertheme{rectangles}
    \useoutertheme[footline=empty, subsection=true]{miniframes}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{Test frame}
    \begin{block}<+->{Block}
        Beamer is cool
    \end{block}
\end{frame}

\end{document
}

Please kindly inform us if you do a crossposting [1]. This is just fair and prevents others from double efforts and waste of time.

Sorry, I should have known that the LaTeX community is small. The reason I did that is because I need an answer urgently, or otherwise work-around the problem in an ugly fashion (which would also not mean the end of the world for me).

In case of an answer I will make sure it will be posted to both website, it's not my nature to leave orphaned threads.

I got a nice answer from Stefan on SE:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\setbeamertemplate{headline}
{%
  \begin{beamercolorbox}[ht=3.5ex,dp=1.125ex,%
      leftskip=.3cm,rightskip=.3cm plus1fil]{section in head/foot}
    \usebeamerfont{section in head/foot}\usebeamercolor[fg]{section in head/foot
}%
    \insertsectionhead
  \end{beamercolorbox}%
  \begin{beamercolorbox}[colsep=1.5pt]{middle separation line head}
  \end{beamercolorbox}
  \begin{beamercolorbox
}[ht=2.5ex,dp=1.125ex,%
    leftskip=.3cm,rightskip=.3cm plus1fil]{subsection in head/foot}
    \usebeamerfont{subsection in head/foot}\insertsubsectionhead
  \end{beamercolorbox
}%
  \begin{beamercolorbox}[colsep=1.5pt]{lower separation line head}
  \end{beamercolorbox}
}


The only thing missing now are the sections in the top, with the current one being highlighted. Is that also possible to do?
