On a mac 10.10.5 with texlipse plugin for the IDE Eclipse (newest version MARS) together with TeXLive/TeXShop I am trying to convert a tex-file with an eps image to pdf and I use epstopdf-package for that purpose.

When converting the tex-file log sais that a eps-to-pdf file is generated but not found afterwards, see excerpt from log:

Package epstopdf Info: Source file: <eijkel2.eps>

ted safely (allowed).

Package epstopdf Info: Result file: <eijkel2-eps-converted-to.pdf>.

! Package pdftex.def Error: File `eijkel2-eps-converted-to.pdf' not found.

See the pdftex.def package documentation for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

Within the tex-file I included:


What am I doing wrong? Thank you for your help.

EDIT: Here is the complete tex-file/code:

The abstract should summarize the contents of the paper and should
contain at least 70 and at most 150 words. It should be written using the
\emph{abstract} environment.
\keywords{We would like to encourage you to list your keywords within
the abstract section}


\subsection{Checking the PDF File}

\subsubsection{Lemmas, Propositions, and Theorems.}


\caption{One kernel at $x_s$ (\emph{dotted kernel}) or two kernels at
$x_i$ and $x_j$ (\textit{left and right}) lead to the same summed estimate
at $x_s$. This shows a figure consisting of different types of
lines. Elements of the figure described in the caption should be set in
italics, in parentheses, as shown in this sample caption.}

\paragraph{Remark 1.}






\subsection{Program Code}

Program listings or program commands in the text are normally set in
typewriter font, e.g., CMTT10 or Courier.


{\it Example of a Computer Program}
program Inflation (Output)
  {Assuming annual inflation rates of 7%, 8%, and 10%,...
     MaxYears = 10;
     Year: 0..MaxYears;
     Factor1, Factor2, Factor3: Real;
     Year := 0;
     Factor1 := 1.0; Factor2 := 1.0; Factor3 := 1.0;
     WriteLn('Year  7% 8% 10%'); WriteLn;
       Year := Year + 1;
       Factor1 := Factor1 * 1.07;
       Factor2 := Factor2 * 1.08;
       Factor3 := Factor3 * 1.10;
     until Year = MaxYears

\section{Checklist of Items to be Sent to Volume Editors}
Here is a checklist of everything the volume editor requires from you:


\item The final \LaTeX{} source files
\item A final PDF file
\item A copyright form, signed by one author on behalf of all of the
authors of the paper.
\item A readme giving the name and email address of the
corresponding author.
  • Welcome to TeX.SE. Could you provide a full code that give this error? – Romain Picot Nov 18 '15 at 13:19
  • Thank you for your welcome and answer. I just edited my post revealing the complete tex-code. – Pille Nov 18 '15 at 15:00
  • try to reduced the code by making as little as possible (see MWE couldn't link it easily right now) – Romain Picot Nov 18 '15 at 15:42
  • What would you have me to show you of the code? I reduced it a bit (especially the text sections). – Pille Nov 18 '15 at 15:43
