Hi All I noticed recently that I a lot of EPS graphics end up in the wrong place with the pdflatex backend. I guess it has to do with the bounding box, and somehow it is wrongly set during the conversion process. Then the picture ends up in the wrong place, or it is (partially) invisible if clipping is set. I find that very inconvenient.
Now I am not sure what exactly the cause is. I used to have a manual conversion rule set from eps to pdf (ps2pdf) using convert, but that stopped working correctly (with the explained issues) with the upgrade to Ubuntu Jaunty (beta). I was using LyX 1.6 before, and certainly on Windows it does not have these issues (not sure about Ubuntu intrepid, I think it came with LyX 1.5). Then I thought I had fixed the issue by installed epstopdf, but not it is back in certain files. There is a bug report for it https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lyx/+bug/238580 , but it is very vague and possibly combines several issues. I intend to figure out the problem eventually, but I wonder whether anybody has experienced this before, or any insight into when it happens. I use EPS documents mostly from dia and inkscape, but there may be a few other sources, too. Regards, Thomas
