This was fixed by running texhash.exe as suggested by daleif.

    I'm currently trying to install the beamer style called 'Frederiksberg' used for the University of Copenhagen. Their manual states:

    1. The directory which in the install package is named tex/latex/beamer/Frederiksberg needs to be put where LATEX will find it.
    2. The directory which in the install package is named dvips/Frederiksberg needs to be put where dvips will find it.

    I did that:

    enter image description here enter image description here

    In a .tex file with beamer, I included \usetheme{Frederiksberg} according to the manual:

    \usepackage[english, danish]{babel}
      \usetheme{Frederiksberg}      % or try Darmstadt, Madrid, Warsaw, ...
      \usecolortheme{} % or try albatross, beaver, crane, ...
      \usefonttheme[onlymath]{serif}  % or try serif, structurebold, ...
      \setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}
    \title[{\fontsize{6}{10}\selectfont \emph{Fysikken bag brint}}]{Fysikken bag brint}
    \author[Casper Juul Lorentzen]{Casper Juul Lorentzen}
    \institute[3z, HTX]{Albertslund Gymnasium}
    \date[Fysik eksamensprojekt]{\today}
            \item Klassisk mekanik vs kvantemekanik \pause

            \item Kvant tager over på atomare skalaer \pause 
            \item Bohr og Schrödinger

    and I get the following error:

    File `beamerthemeFrederiksberg.sty' not found. }

    I have tried to run the tlmgr.bat file, I have tried to locate the directories not under the 'local' folder but merely under the 'latex' and 'dvips' folders, but I still get the error. How do I fix this?

      Did you run texhash after you placed those files? The description on that github page is very poor.

      You, sir, are a very helpful person. Running texhash worked. Thanks!

      It is listed at the bottom of that github page. Because it is so important, it should have been highlighted a lot more
