comment why is adding `breqn` package breaks `etoolbox` command?
thanks. Initial test shows it works but generates what seems to be harmless error from lualatex but no such message from pdflatex. When I compiled using lualatex -shell-esc foo.tex I see message: (/usr/local/texlive/2015/texmf-dist/tex/generic/oberdiek/ifluatex.sty))) (./foo2.aux)id: invalid option -- '.' Try 'id --help' for more information. but when I look at the pdf file, I see the group id there ! I need to test this more on my main file which does something more complicated. thanks

@DavidCarlisle Ok, thanks. I am switching to egrep \shellcommand which works! but it has problem when I use breqn package, which I must use. I posted separate question on that. Latex is so hard.

@DavidCarlisle that was just an example. I am using the bash command to obtain different information. But using id -g for illustrations.

@Bort I do not undertand. The command works fine when breq package is not included. This is a standard linux command: id -g gives me 1000. The error in the command was due to using the breq package.

comment How to check that image has valid size before `\includegraphics` is called?
I thought it will go over multiple pages, and I just needed to check. I had no idea how it will work with such large image. pdflatex said pdfTeX warning: pdflatex (file ./image.pdf): PDF inclusion: multiple pdfs with page group included in a single page so this is OK. I wanted it to fit on one page. thanks.

I just tried your solution and the image does show on only ONE page, which is great! that is what I want.

Thanks. There are few images out of over 55,000 images that have this problem. Most are small and cause no problem. Also pdf allows zooming so one can zoom to see the image if needed. The point is not to break the compilation each time new images are generated. So your solutions allows me to compile the pdf and not have to worry about breaking the build. But I would need it to fit to one page as before, even if it become too smal to see. But will try and see.
