I’m currently in the early stages of writing my PhD thesis. I’m writing it using LaTeX, and I’m trying to get the perfect build system and editing environment going. Yesterday I had a look at Texlipse, a plugin for Eclipse. There was one problem: EPS figures didn’t work.
In newish versions of Latex, if you use the epstopdf package, your images are converted on the fly, but this wasn’t working in Texlipse. Luckily the fix is easy, and the rest of this post explains what to do.
