I'm encountering a problem when converting .eps to .pgf with eps2pgf. I'm running OSX Yosemite with Java version 1.8.0_31.

This is what I input in Terminal:

java -jar eps2pgf.jar figure1.eps -o figure1.pgf

(to be clear: I don't think it's a path problem, because I specify the whole path in terminal, for every file. I just didn't do it here because that wouldn't be very clear for you.)

When I run the command, the following error is returned:

ERROR: A PostScript error occurred.
ERROR:     Type: Error: /undefined in currentlinecap
ERROR:     Operand stack (max top 10 items):
ERROR:       |- 1.3
ERROR: Execution failed due to a PostScript error in the input file. 

The input file is a .eps file exported directly from SPSS output as a .eps file. I have no reason to believe there is anything wrong with it. Can anyone help?

    Is this connected to (La)TeX? – user31729 Aug 4 '15 at 13:41
  • @ChristianHupfer Yes, I'm trying to get my SPSS output into LaTeX. I don't want to include picture files in my document, because it's very frustrating and a lot of hassle to format it so that it fits in nicely with the layout of my document. The best option I found was to export .eps from SPSS, and then convert that to .pgf, so that the formatting can be done natively in LaTeX. – idix Aug 4 '15 at 15:03
