You may need to select downloading explicitly by using a menu of
your browser for some of the files (e.g. the jar archives and the
shell script). Please check the file sizes for the
jar archives after download before trying to use them.
.zip archives with text files are created with
CR/LF lineend markers. *n*x users may wish to use an option to
change that on extraction.
Things you need in any case:
The style files (a zip
archive, prepared 12 Sep 2002) for formatting.
If you just need one of the files pick it from here:
Put these style files into your (local) LaTeX tree and update
the contents cache, if necessary (

pdfslide: this package is likely to contain an
outdated version of
pause.sty. You should
remove that one.
Another note: the file
pdfslide.sty quoted in the

Depending on your operating system you need a batch file or
script to call the post processor. These scripts require some
customization to make sure they find the jar file.
If someone can supply a script for other
environments and is willing to share it, I can
include it here.
