# Unable to load picture or PDF file

XeLaTeX has stopped including .eps files in my document. I get errors such as:

! Unable to load picture or PDF file './images/deBuitleir.fig4.eps'.


The image file is there, I double-checked.

History: Inclusion of .eps images worked fine until I did a "safe-upgrade" on Debian. Based on this and this, it seems to be a regression of an old Debian bug. Since I couldn't find a patch that fixed the problem, I removed all TeX and XeTeX packages on my Debian system and installed TeX Live from source. I then updated my path. Unfortunately, the error is still occurring, even though I have a "plain vanilla" TeX Live installation.

I really really don't want to convert all of my .eps files to another format. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank you in advance.

Here's the MWE:

\documentclass[letter,10pt]{article}

\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}

Figure 1

\includegraphics[scale=0.5,keepaspectratio=true]{./images/deBuitleir.fig1.eps}

\end{document}

Can you post a MWE (Minimum Working Example) and .eps file to check where is the mistake. Maybe is path of figures is wrong or try changing the figure to the latex source folder –  texenthusiast Jun 18 '12 at 16:19
Maybe it is trying to read fig4 as the file extension. –  percusse Jun 18 '12 at 16:33
That was the problem! I forgot that I also had to rename the images to satisfy the editor's naming convention. –  mhwombat Jun 18 '12 at 16:41
Forgot to say: When I changed the first "." to an underscore, it worked. –  mhwombat Jun 18 '12 at 16:49
@mhwombat: Please accept Martin Schröder's answer. –  Crowley Jun 19 '12 at 7:18

Your file has two dots, so LaTeX sees it as .fig4.eps - which is an unknown graphics file type.
Add \usepackage[multidot]{grffile}
