I spent a little time today tracking down the current tricks for setting up a slideshow from IPython Notebook now that +Matthias Bussonnier's changes have been merged into +IPython master.  

For those of you looking for a quick start, you can grab the profile I've set up here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/65439/profile_slides.zip

It's got a nice clear background using suggestions from here:

And better fonts suggested here:

If you want to adjust anything, it is easy to modify the custom.css in the static/css subdirectory.  My usual method is to right-click on whatever looks wonky and use the "Inspect Element" dropdown in Chrome to find out exactly what CSS elements I want to modify/override.

All you need to do is get a recentish development version of IPython, unpack this directory, in your .ipython directory (it should expand to profile_slides), then get going with:

ipython notebook --profile=slides

You may need to do a hard reload or clear your cache to get it your browser load the new javascript/css,.

There are more detailed notes here: https://github.com/Carreau/ipython-static-profiles on how some of this works.
