I have problem about finding files in latex from server filesystem.

Here is my whole latex code for rendering business card.


    \usepackage[paperwidth=80mm, paperheight=50mm]{geometry}



        \put(7, 31.75){\tt \LARGE #1}
        \put(7, 9){\tt #2}
        \put(66, 7.5){\tt #3}
        \put(68, 22){\tt #4}
        \put(28, 12){\tt #5}



      {\includegraphics[width=54.23mm, height=15.87mm]{nic_int_logo_logobitmapmid_1v0.jpg}}
      {\includegraphics[width=9mm, height=29.93mm]{gray.png}}
      {\parbox{\textwidth}{\large \myfont{Matija \\Lukic}}}


In my log file I get error:

Package pdftex.def Error: File `personal_photo_1.jpg' not found.

I've been trying to fix error by changing paths where images are located:




Also, I tried to remove last slash in paths, and add line before each filename. I still get the same error.

  • Where exactly is app/static in relation to the file being compiled? Also did you try ./app/static/... if app is a subfolder if the folder in which the file is being compiled.

  • File being compiled is in the same directory as app folder. I tried to add ./ but it doesn't work. Oct 26, 2018 at 10:48
  • Does it work if the images are in the same folder as the tex file? Then we can rule out the the issue is with the file names.

  • Also are you 100% sure this is the only error from the log file?

I resolved problem.

If you use


you must add slash before filename like this:

{\includegraphics[width=54.23mm, height=15.87mm]{/nic_int_logo_logobitmapmid_1v0.jpg}}
  {\includegraphics[width=9mm, height=29.93mm]{/gray.png}}
  {\parbox{\textwidth}{\large \myfont{Matija \\Lukic}}}

Now it works.
