README for the Stan­dard Graphics bun­dle

This bun­dle con­sists of pack­ages writ­ten and sup­ported by mem­bers of the 3 Project Team.

It is a col­lec­tion of pack­ages for:

  • pro­duc­ing colour
  • in­clud­ing graph­ics (eg PostScript) files
  • ro­ta­tion and scal­ing of text
in doc­u­ments.

File Notes
gr­fguide.tex User Guide to all the pack­ages in this bun­dle
WARNING: This file calls color and graph­ics pack­ages with­out a driver op­tion. You must there­fore set up two files color.cfg and graphics.cfg con­tain­ing (for ex­am­ple) \ExecuteOptions{dvips} be­fore run­ning this file.
ro­tex.tex Ex­am­ples of use of ro­tat­ing pack­age


 latex graphics.ins

This will pro­duce the .sty pack­age files.

Sim­i­larly you can run

 latex graphics-drivers.ins

to pro­duce the .def driver files.

Not all sup­ported drivers are in­cluded in this file as they are main­tained else­where.


Move files end­ing in .sty or .def to a stan­dard in­put di­rec­tory.

Make a de­fault op­tion for your site by cre­at­ing two files color.cfg and graphics.cfg con­tain­ing (if dvips is your de­fault driver) Ex­e­cuteOp­tions{dvips}

You may then the user guide by run­ning:

 latex grfguide.tex


Copy­right is main­tained on each of these pack­ages by the au­thor(s) of the pack­age.

The lat­est ver­sion of this li­cense is in https://www.la­tex-project.org/lppl.txt and ver­sion 1.3c or later is part of all dis­tri­bu­tions of ver­sion 2005/12/01 or later.

The list of all files be­long­ing to this bun­dle is listed above.

Re­port­ing Bugs

If you wish to re­port a prob­lem or bug in any of these pack­ages please use the Is­sue Tracker for on GitHub and fol­low the guide­lines that pop up if you press the New issue but­ton.

In par­tic­u­lar, to check that you are re­ally see­ing a bug, please write a short, self-con­tained doc­u­ment that shows the prob­lem. This should in­clude the latexbug pack­age, which will warn if your test file is not suit­able for one or the other rea­son. See the CONTRIBUTING guide for fur­ther de­tails, or if you need to ob­tain the latexbug pack­age.

If the bug turns out to be with third-party soft­ware then please con­tact the de­vel­oper, and not us!

graph­ics – Stan­dard graph­ics

The pack­age was de­signed to ac­com­mo­date all needs for in­clu­sion of graph­ics in doc­u­ments, re­plac­ing many ear­lier pack­ages used in 2.09. The pack­age aims to give a con­sis­tent in­ter­face to in­clud­ing the file types that are un­der­stood in your out­put, by use of ‘printer drivers’ (now known, sim­ply, as ‘drivers’). The dis­tri­bu­tion of the pack­age con­tains sev­eral drivers, but oth­ers (for ex­am­ple, pdf) are dis­tributed sep­a­rately. The pack­age also of­fers sev­eral means of ma­nip­u­lat­ing graph­ics in the course of in­sert­ing them into a doc­u­ment (for ex­am­ple, ro­ta­tion and scal­ing).

For ex­tended doc­u­men­ta­tion see ep­s­la­tex.

The pack­age is part of the graph­ics bun­dle, which is one of the col­lec­tions in the ‘re­quired’ set of pack­ages.
