When I compile the following code (LaTeX -> pdf) without the option 'subfolder' at the 'gnuplottex'-package, it works fine.

The ps-file 'test-gnuplottex-fig1.ps', automatically created by gnuplottex, is converted to a pdf-file 'test-gnuplottex-fig1-eps-converted-to.pdf' by epstopdf, both files are in the same folder as the main tex-file.



plot sin(x) notitle


But adding the 'subfolder' option results in the error "Undefined control sequence" at the position in the tex-file where the pdf-file gets included because there's only a ps-file in the subfolder 'gnuplottex', but no pdf-file.

The error remains when I copy the pdf-file 'test-gnuplottex-fig1-eps-converted-to.pdf' to the 'gnuplottex'-subfolder.

How can I get the gnuplottex package to run with the subfolder option?

My system:

  • MikTeX 2.9
  • TeXnicCenter 2.0 Beta 2
  • Windows 7
  • 'gnuplottex'-package version 0.7 (2013/07/23)

This is a bug in gnuplottex. I've just uploaded a new version that should fix this.
