I'm trying to export a SVG file into TeX code (pstricks) using Inkscape. I've created the code but I think something is missing in the preamble. What packages should I use? And what is the proper name to enter in the documentclass?
I'm adding the screenshot of all the errors which have occurred.

Because my code is too long I decided to upload it using a link:
link to my .tex file

  • Is there any reason why you don't export directly to .pdf?

  • Yes. Unfortunately I have to create a .tex file @Bernard

  • @Bernard perhaps LaTeX -> dvi -> ps. While Inkscape can export eps (or you can convert) I've had trouble in the past.

  • @Hendrra: Sure, but then you use \includegraphics. I mentioned this possibility because the pstricks code produced by all these graphic programs is not very good.

  • @Chris: With Inkscape you can save as .pdf. I didn't use this possibility very often, but I never had any problem.

The documentclass is up to you. For pstricks you need the package pstricks. If you compile with pdflatex you should also load auto-pst-pdf.

Don't forget do add the document environment as suggested by your editor.

  • Now there are no errors but there is only a blank pdf file when I open it.

  • Thank you for another advice! How can I do it?

  • Is it possible to add many lines of code using {}?

  • @Hendrra See here on how to properly format your code (multi-lined).

  • Unfortunately my code was too long so I added a link directly to it.

.. the rest of your code ...


and then run it with xelatex or the sequence latex->dvips->ps2pdf. If you have still problems paste the complete code into your question as text and not as an image.

enter image description here

  • Unfortunately I still have some problems with that code. I posted a link to my .tex file.

  • instead of your given \psset use \psset{unit=0.2pt}. See my edited answer.

  • Unfortunately there are still some errors: "Undefined control sequence". Have your code worked? How to run it using xelatex?

  • I suppose you run your document with pdf latex instead of xelatex or the sequence latex->dvips->ps2pdf.
