I am using the EPFL thesis template to write a LaTex document. I need to compile it using pdfLaTex. Also, I want to use these same template - I can't use any other template. I have many EPS figures which I am unable to include as it throws me the following error

Package epstopdf Info: Source file: (epstopdf)

date: 2014-03-22 17:37:02 (epstopdf) size: 1694

bytes (epstopdf) Output file:

(epstopdf) Command:

-to.pdf images/logo> (epstopdf) \includegraphics on input line 14.

runsystem(repstopdf--outfile=images/logo-eps-converted-to.pdf images/logo.eps)...executed safely (allowed).

Package epstopdf Info: Result file: .

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

I have included the graphicx and epstopdf packages but to no change.I have installed MacTex packages and I am using TexStudio as my LaTex editor.

Is there a way I can include EPS figures without running into these problems? Please note that if I don't use this template and write a normal LaTex document these problems do not arise. I have also tried with other thesis templates and I receive exactly the same problem. I would like to find a solution for such a thesis template itself.

Thanks!

Edit1

Someone has asked me for a piece of code. The zip file for the EPFL thesis template has a file named titlepage.tex. This file includes the EPFL logo (as PDF) within LaTex. I just need to include an EPS image. Here's the relevant code but it's a standard piece of code to include figures in LaTex. logo is the EPS image.

\begin{tabular} {cc}
\parbox{0.3\textwidth}{\includegraphics[width=4cm]{images/logo}}

I am able to include PNG, PDF and JPG images but I want to include EPS images for many reasons.

This seems to be a TexStudio issue (also mentioned here). It works absolutely good with TexShop. Strange!

• Have you tried to convert the files from eps to pdf using something like ghostscript or Adobe Destiller? I know it's not really an easy solution if you have many eps-figures, but a solution none the less. – Argo Mar 22 '14 at 13:58
• Can you add a simple example of code? – egreg Mar 22 '14 at 14:09
• @Argo I can do that, but it defeats the purpose - doesn't it? – Dexter Mar 22 '14 at 14:12
• @egreg The EPFL zip file for the thesis template has a file named titlepage.tex and it includes LaTex code to include the EPFL pdf image. I want to include an eps image instead of PDF. In any case, I will add some code in the original question. – Dexter Mar 22 '14 at 14:14
• @Dexter I can't understand the xxx-eps-converted bit: it should have a different name than xxx. – egreg Mar 22 '14 at 14:17
