I have the following Problem: I am using matlab2tikz to get my Matlab plots into latex. I have very large time series, that i already cut down using resampling. Nevertheless my I need a lot more time to compile my Latex. I read about using \externalize to save the figure once compiled. In my header file (separate tex. document to have better overview) use:

 \usepackage{pgfplots}
 \pgfplotsset{compat=newest}

with that I tried the following three options:

1.

\usetikzlibrary{external} 
\tikzexternalize[prefix=autofigs/]

2.

\usetikzlibrary{external} \tikzset{external/system call={lualatex
     \tikzexternalcheckshellescape -halt-on-error
     -interaction=batchmode -jobname "\image" "\texsource"}}
 \tikzexternalize[prefix=autofigs/]

3.

\usetikzlibrary{external}
\tikzset{external/system call={latex \tikzexternalcheckshellescape -halt-on-error
-interaction=batchmode -jobname "\image" "\texsource";
dvips -o "\image".ps "\image".dvi;
ps2eps "\image.ps"}}
\tikzexternalize

In my TexStudio 2.7.0 I set under preferences->commands

latex:

/usr/texbin/latex --shell-escape -src -interaction=nonstopmode  %.tex

pdfLaTeX

/usr/texbin/pdflatex --shell-escape -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex

LuaLaTeX

/usr/texbin/lualatex --shell-escape -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex

I should add that I don't really know what I am doing with those other than "enable shell escape"

Just to test this I copied a minimal example from somewhere in this forum:

\begin{tikzpicture} 
\draw[thick,blue] (2cm,0) -- (0:1cm) -- (90:1cm); 
\end{tikzpicture}

When I do compile&show (F1) I get the tike picture rendered but the following error message:

! Package tikz Error: Sorry, the system call 'lualatex -shell-escape -halt-on-e
rror -interaction=batchmode -jobname "autofigs/DA-figure0" "\def\tikzexternalre
aljob{DA}\input{DA}"' did NOT result in a usable output file 'autofigs/DA-figur
e0' (expected one of .pdf:.jpg:.jpeg:.png:). Please verify that you have enable
d system calls. For pdflatex, this is 'pdflatex -shell-escape'. Sometimes it is
 also named 'write 18' or something like that. Or maybe the command simply fail
ed? Error messages can be found in 'autofigs/DA-figure0.log'. If you continue n
ow, I'll try to typeset the picture.

It seems to have something to do with the system call not beeing executed (I don't get a new log-file in my tex folder)

edit: here is a minimal setup to showcase my problem:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,twoside]{report}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\pgfplotsset{compat=newest}

\newlength\figureheight
\newlength\figurewidth 


\usetikzlibrary{external} 
\tikzexternalize[prefix=tikz/]


\begin{document}

      \tikzsetnextfilename{TESTOR}
      \begin{tikzpicture} 
      \draw[thick,blue] (2cm,0) -- (0:1cm) -- (90:1cm); 
      \end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}

What am i doing wrong ?? I really like the possibilities with this matlab2tikz workflow but those compiling times are just not tolerable....

thanks a bunch

edit:

running without nonstop mode by entering the following to pdflatex:

/usr/texbin/pdflatex -shell-escape -synctex=1  %.tex

(also tried two dashes in front of the shell...didnt change anything)

results in the Message:

/usr/texbin/pdflatex -shell-escape -synctex=1  %.tex

did i mess up the syntax somewhere ? Its not really an error message but there is nothing in my folder i set up for the "Prerendered" stuff to go in (autofigs)

here the log:

Welcome to TeX.SX! Can you please add a minimal complete document that shows the issue? –  egreg May 21 at 17:04

I tried the example file, but I can't reproduce the issue. So it might be something wrong with the options to the TeXStudio builder command. Can you try from the terminal? –  egreg May 21 at 20:07
    
Don't use nonstopmode when trouble shooting. You want it to stop so that it will hopefully tell you where the problem is! Did you remember to create the empty sub-directory for the externalised images? –  cfr May 22 at 0:08
    
the folder exists...i tried without nonstop mode...doesnt give me an error message anymore but doesn't produce a file in my auto figs folder either...(see question...added details there) –  Jo.schua May 22 at 7:55
    
as for trying to run the builder commands from the terminal ? I don't have any experience with that...never even messed with the builder commands in TexSTudio before. There is a good chance that I messed up that part. I'll add a screenshot of there preferences window to the main question. –  Jo.schua May 22 at 8:00
