I want to include both .eps and .png figures in a latex document. I did some research and find out the solution is to use dvipdfm package. However, this package does not include my .eps files in the document and report following warnings:

$ dvipdfmx test.dvi

** WARNING ** "ps: plotfile" found (not properly implemented)

I am using following headers in my .tex file:


I used to stack Latex, dvi2ps, ps2pdf command to get a .pdf file including .eps figures.

I use following command to include figures in the documet:

    \caption{Total workload }

Any idea to fix this issue ?


With pdflatex --shell-escape with TeX Live 2013 (and probably --enable-write18 in MikTeX) you can make directly a PDF including both PNG and EPS files. A MWE:



In place of the EPS file really is used a PDF copy generated on the fly by epstopdf (in spite that the package of the same name was not included in the preamble). Try \usepackage{epstopdf} if this MWE fail in your computer).

  • In MiKTeX --enable-write18 is the original switch, but --shell-escape works as well. But I had to include epstopdf explicitely in MiKTeX: tex.stackexchange.com/a/52026/9237 (just tested again: still valid). – Speravir Jan 10 '14 at 0:26
