including .eps figure

LaTeX Forum: MiKTeX and proTeXt

Add tags Information and discussion about MikTeX distribution for Windows and the related proTeXt: Installing, updating, configuring
Hi every body,

I'm in the middle of writing a paper, I'm using latex through protext. I have the following problem:

I included a graphics (.eps file) in the following way:
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics{eijkel2}
\caption{whatever}
\label{fig:example}
\end{figure}

The figure takes empty space in the generated pdf file. what is happening? Why can't I see the figure?

I tried the [dvips] option with the \usepackage{graphicx}, but still, the problem is there.

Any help?

Thanks a lot.

Osama.

Hi,

don't use pdflatex, use latex instead, that means compile to dvi and convert to ps and pdf then.
If you are already doing this, look at your logfile for warnings or post your logfile here as attachment.

Yes it works now, the dvi file shows my .eps figure. Now, what is the way to convert .dvi file to .pdf file such that all fonts are embedded?

Thanks stefan_k

Hi,

use dvipdfm, it's delivered with the proTeXt (MiKTeX) distribution. Or convert with dvips and then ps2pdf. What Editor do you use? WinEdt, TeXnicCenter or another? Some editors provide buttons for conversion from dvi to pdf or dvi to ps and then to pdf, they use dvipdfm/dvips/pd2pdf in the background.

Hi,

I've got the same problem (the .eps(es) don't show up in the output pdf) and also, I could not choose the dvi option as the output; it says something like:

PDF mode expected, but DVI mode detected...

I appreciate if you help me out,
Thanks,
Pouria

Try using MiKTex 2.8 and including the extension .eps with your file name. MiKTeX 2.8 partially enables \write18, which may solve your problem.

hi,
i think including this will help. It works for me at least. I use MIKTeX that comes with the proTeXt bundle.

\usepackage{epstopdf}
