I'm trying to use includepdf to insert an external document into my thesis. I'm using Texlive in Linux, I have the package pdfpages installed properly. I'm compiling the document with pdflatex.

....
\RequirePackage{pdfpages} 
....  
\begin{document}
\includepdf[pages=1]{assignment.pdf}
\include{chap-introduction}
\include{chap-problem-specification}
....

I don't get the "assignment.pdf" included. Instead, I only get an empty page with the text "assignment.pdf". The compilation is successfull, there is no pdfpages-related warning or error in the logs. I tried it with few different files, but no success. How can I troubleshoot this?

Do you have the option draft activated in the package or class? –  Juri Robl Dec 28 '13 at 11:44
    
Thank you! I wouldn't have expected that the draft flag can be the cause. –  Jan Hadáček Dec 28 '13 at 12:09

You should use \usepackage{pdfpages} in your preamble. And maybe in this case, \usepackage[final]{pdfpages} should help. –  yo' Dec 28 '13 at 12:17

If you use the draft option, no pictures are included. Only the filename of the image is printed. pdfpages simply includes the pdf-pages as pagesized images and is also effected by the option.
