I was trying to include a figure in LuaLatex, but got an error message of

!Package pdftex.def Error: File 'test-eps-converted-to.pdf' not found.

The same code run in pdfLaTex+MakeIndex+bibTex. Is there a way to fix this? Also, is there anyway to include a directory or file pathway that contains a white space (e.g., c:\my project\tex)?

    You could try to remove the eps extension from the \includegraphics command. – Nicolas Sep 26 '13 at 18:31

    You have to call lualatex with the command line option --shell-escape – karlkoeller Sep 26 '13 at 18:43

    Thanks. I tried removing the eps extension-now it shows "!LaTex Error: File 'test" not found". I put the .eps file in the same directory as the .tex file. Also, how can option --shell-escape be called for lualatex? – user36969 Sep 26 '13 at 19:11

    From the command line lualatex --shell-escape myfile where myfile is the name of your .tex file. If you want to do that from your editor add --shell-escape to the command line of lualatex. – karlkoeller Sep 26 '13 at 19:24

    @karlkoeller Can you confirm whether the issue is still present in MiKTeX? If not, it's better to close this question. – egreg Apr 10 '15 at 10:23
