Minimal working example is:







(the content of empty.eps doesn't matter). Attempting to compile this with

pdflatex -shell-escape mwe.tex

leads to the following error:

Error: /undefined in pgfo

What's amiss here?

P.S.: This TikZ and auto-pst-pdf break Ghostscript seems to be related.

    You want to use a tcolorbox as replacement text in a .eps file? Compilation works for me with xelatex, however – user31729 Jan 4 at 22:52
  • Yes, I want. In fact I did, meaning that this worked with pdflatex for at least some version (on a computer that's now broken). – BlenderBender Jan 4 at 22:59
