Latex and graphics :–(

Follow-up to The joys of LaTeX from Laura's blog

Thank you for your help if you commented on my first entry about Latex and graphics. I’m still stuck I’m afriad. I’ve converted the image to a .pdf and then written \usepackages{graphicx} at the top and then typed \includegraphics{Normalisedzscores.pdf}

When I did this to start with, it said it needed to know the dimension of the bounding box so I altered it to \includegraphics[bb = 4 4 5 5]{Normalisedzscores.pdf} which runs fine, but in DVi I get the following error message:

Error: /undefined in obj Operand stack: --nostringval-- PermitFileReading --nostringval-- PermitFileWriting --nostringval-- 1 0 Execution stack: %interp_exit .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- false 1 %stopped_push 1 3 %oparray_pop 1 3 %oparray_pop 1 3 %oparray_pop 1 3 %oparray_pop .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- Dictionary stack: --dict:1057/1123(ro)(G)-- --dict:0/20(G)-- --dict:70/200(L)-- --dict:95/300(L)-- --dict:42/200(L)-- Current allocation mode is local MiKTeX GPL Ghostscript 8.01: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

Any ideas? Thank you for your help.

P.S. Apologies to anyone reading my blog hoping for something exciting!

  1. If you have your image in PDF form, I don’t think you can use DVI (it might only accept postscript, though I’m not sure). Try using PDFLaTeX instead.

    I get the same error when I try to insert a ps file. Can anybody tell me why? Thanks…
