# Option clash: using pdfpages with xcolor [duplicate]

I am using `\usepackage[table]{xcolor}` to alternate table row colors in my thesis.

I have tried to include a `.pdf` file as an Appendix using `pdfpages`, however LyX tells me there is a option clash with `xcolor`.

Is there a known workaround for this issue? I have been stumped for the last 2 hours.

Many thanks

• Try `\PassOptionsToPackage{table}{xcolor}` in the preamble instead of `\usepackage[table]{xcolor}` – user31729 Jun 21 '15 at 19:13
• Possible before loading package `classicthesis`. – Johannes_B Jun 21 '15 at 19:20
• @Johannes_B: `classicthesis`?????? – user31729 Jun 21 '15 at 19:22
• Load `xcolor` without options and pass `table` as a class option: `\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,table]{article} \usepackage{xcolor}`. – Gonzalo Medina Jun 22 '15 at 0:26
