Re: LaTeX => PS => PDF

Postby kristen10 » Wed Sep 22, 2010 7:16 am

Dear Gurus,

I've been trying to fix this problem for a few hours and am about to give up and hope someone out there can figure out what I've done wrong.

I followed the below steps (uninstalling everything I have and then reinstalling it all). I still get the same result of my final pdf output just shows the bounding boxes and the name of the file (XXX.eps) where the figure should be. Any ideas on what I've done wrong?

I'm working in Windows - TeXnicCenter with the latest version of mikeTex and Ghostscript installed. I'm running the LaTeX - PS - PDF build command.

Thanks in advance.
Kristen

This time I did it in a way I found simpler... perhaps the latest version of the software has made it easier? Anyway, all I did to set everything up, including the LaTeX=>PS=>PDF profile, was this:

* Download and install the latest version of MiKTeX
* Install any updates by clicking Start...Programs...MiKTeX...Update
* Download and install the latest version of TeXnicCenter
* Download and install Ghostscript. The various files to download confused me. I went here: http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/doc/cvs/Install.htm to find out that I could simply download a file called gs###w32.exe, where ### is the latest version, in order to get a self-extracting file to install Ghostscript on a Windows 32-bit system (the usual type) running XP, Vista and other operating systems.
* Upon opening TeXnicCenter, you are prompted to use the Confuguration Wizard window. To get back to this another time to set up the LaTeX=>PS=>PDF profile, in TeXnicCenter click Build...Define Output Profiles...Wizard
* When it asks for the full path for the directory where the executables of your Tex-distribution are located, browse to C...Program Files...MiKTeX 2.7...miktex...bin (ok)
* Click next...next...finish
* Et voila! (It worked for me anyway.) I get the four profiles: LaTeX=>DVI; LaTeX=>PDF; LaTeX=>PS; and the elusive LaTeX=>PS=>PDF.

I hope this helps someone. Computers can be a pain in the bum-bum.

then you have a "draft"-Option somewhere in your document header

Thanks Herbert! I'm hitting my head over that one. That was part of the issue and another was a .ps file, but all good now. Thank you very much.

I got this error also "Theres was an error opening this document. This file can not be found". What I did is changing the command line argument in the viewer tab from "%bm.ps" to "%bm.pdf". Thanks
