Bibliography in Beamer (Latex Presentation)

Beamer put an icon before every bibliography item listed, by default.

The following code does this job.


\begin{frame}[allowframebreaks] %allow to expand references to multiple frames (slides)



\bibliography{references} %bibtex file name without .bib extension



We will get the normal bibliography style (number or text instead of icon) by including the following code in the preamble of the document.

(Before \begin{document})

\setbeamertemplate{bibliography item}[text]

Spellcheck with Kile

We often need to run spell-check in Kile. Unfortunately, current version of Kile (2.1.0) does not ignore all latex commands and it is a pain to do spell-check with Kile.

An easy way to do this is to use ‘aspell’. Run the following in command line (terminal)

aspell -c yourFile.tex
