Problem with LaTeX hyperref package

  1. Jul 18, 2008 #1
    I am having some trouble with the hyperref package in terms of it not actually providing links to my internal references.

    If I use the pdflatex command to compile my document to a pdf, the links work fine.

    However if I use the latex command to compile to a dvi and then dvi2pdf (or whatever this command is actually called) to create the pdf, there will be no linking at all.

    Since I am including .eps images, I cannot use pdflatex.

    Is there any way to get the hyperref package to work correctly when using latex -> dvi2pdf rather than pdflatex?

    Thanks in advance...

    Ok I managed to solve the problem.

    For anyone else that might be interested:

    I was including the package with:

    However if I include it with:

    Then it works when I use dvipdfm to convert to pdf.

    You can use pdflatex if you convert your .eps images to .pdf files using the ps2pdf utility that comes bundled with ghostscript.
