I've only used XeTeX a little so far for Greek text and it's the first time I am trying to include figures. \includegraphics works fine with PNG images but when I try PDF files, it just crashes. Here's a minimal sample:






The same sample works with fig.png instead of fig.pdf. It also works perfectly for both file types with PDFTeX. I am using the following XeTeX version:

This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.9995.2 (TeX Live 2009/Debian)

on Ubuntu 12.04 (with package texlive-full installed). Any idea what may be wrong?

Perhaps you should update. On MiKTeX 2.9, I have version 0.99993. – Bernard Mar 20 '14 at 2:15
Just want to make sure (this might be a reason): this is not a file called fig.tex, right? ;) – mbork Mar 20 '14 at 2:23
@mbork No, it is not :-) – iavr Mar 20 '14 at 2:32
Your XeTeX version is completely outdated! I recommend TeX Live 2013. – Uwe Ziegenhagen Mar 20 '14 at 2:38
This question appears to be off-topic because it is only reproducible with specific PDF files that haven't been provided. – Paul Gessler Jan 14 '15 at 18:51
