From my beamer slides I produce multi slide per page pdfs which are easier for printing.

Things went fine all these years until I used pdfpages and pgfpages in the same file. Here is the stripped down minimal file (from a shell script generated version),



\pgfpagesuselayout{4 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=2.5mm,landscape]




Whenever I pdflatex this file, I get an error message in the line of,

! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \raise \ht \@tempboxa \hbox {}\AM@fbox 
                                                  {\AM@ARBug@hook \AM@reflec...
l.16 \end{document}

I find that if either of pdgpages or pgfpages is omitted, things go fine.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

I get no error; this is my version of pdfpages: pdfpages.sty 2012/08/31 v0.4t. You can see it in the log file if you add \listfiles to the preamble of the .tex document. – egreg Feb 11 '13 at 10:48
My versions are pgfpages 2004/11/05 ver 0.01, pdfpages 2009/02/07 v0.4g, pdfTeX 3.1415926-1.40.10-2.2 (TeX Live 2009/Debian), Ubuntu 12.04 – Masroor Feb 11 '13 at 14:00
Mine too; what version of pdfpages do you have? – egreg Feb 11 '13 at 14:01
pdfpages 2009/02/07 v0.4g, please see my previous comment – Masroor Feb 11 '13 at 14:07
For the record, I get the same error using pdfpages in a beamer document, without knowingly using pgfpages. pdfpages version is pdfpages 2009/02/07 v0.4g Installing the newer version from CTAN made the error disappear. Thanks. – bli Mar 15 '13 at 18:15
