PDFLatex

This post is just a fex explorations with latex. I had trouble with the images and PDFLatex.  One thing I noticed was the pdftex.def version:

  • installed: 0.04d
  • currently listed at project website: 0.04l

Updating the pdftex.def (assuming downloaded to the desktop):

cd /usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/pdftex-def
sudo mv pdftex.def pdftex.def.old
sudo cp /home/skp/Desktop/pdftex.def-0.04l/pdftex.def .

Now, this didn’t solve the problem.  I found that I had to convert the images to pdf. You need to install texlive-extra-utils: sudo apt-get install texlive-extra-utils
Then,
epstopdf imagename.eps

Here is a quick script that will convert all .eps images:

#!/bin/sh
cd images
for f in *.eps
do
epstopdf $f
done
