# problem to insert inkscape pdf into latex

I'm trying to insert the 1.pdf_tex which was generated by Inkscape into my article and I always get this error message:

! Package keyval Error: page undefined. See the keyval package documentation for explanation. Type H for immediate help. ...

! LaTeX Error: Cannot determine size of graphic in images/1.pdf (no BoundingBox ). l.55 ...graphics[width=\unitlength,page=1]{1.pdf}} %

! Package keyval Error: page undefined. ....... ! LaTeX Error: Cannot determine size of graphic in images/1.pdf (no BoundingBox ).

l.55 ...graphics[width=\unitlength,page=2]{1.pdf}} %

I have two documents (1.pdf_tex and 1.pdf) in a directory images\ and I've already put

\usepackge{graphicx}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{transparent}
\graphicspath{{images/}}


at the very beginning of my document. Here is how I insert the 1.pdf_tex:

\begin{figure}[h]
\centering
\def\svgwidth{\columnwidth}
\input{images/1.pdf_tex}
\caption{Test}
\end{figure}


I really want to know why I can't compile and get my final document.

### 1.pdf_tex

save file:

• I do not know what =\unitlength is. But if the pdf page has no BoundingBox, this looks like an error in how it was generated? – Nasser Jul 10 '15 at 22:01
• can you show us 1.pdf_tex ? – Charles Henrique Porto Ferreir Jul 10 '15 at 22:04
• ok, thank both of u! i will show u 1.pdf_tex – xun Jul 10 '15 at 22:14

You have to remove the ,page=1 and all subsequent \put commands which have included repeatedly the input PDF.

This is probably an error of the Inkscape tool, probably this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/1417470

You can use next command to delete all the puts minus the first

  sed -i '/page=[2-9]\|page=1[0-9]/d' *tex


Just in case you haven't solve it and you haven't realize yet. You have a typo in

\usepackge{graphicx}


Has to be

\usepackage{graphicx}

• Why not add this to your other answer as a side comment? Based on the error messages that were reported, I'm guessing this is not the issue (and hence doesn't answer the question); presumably it's just at typo in writing this up on TeX.SX. – Adam Liter Mar 2 '16 at 15:10
• The reason why I didn't add as a side comment or edited is that it has nothing to do with the other problem – Joseba Mar 3 '16 at 16:49
