When I try to compile the template using LaTeX -> PDF (ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/svjour3/global.zip), I get an error: rubber --inplace --maxerr -1 --short -- force --warm all --pdf "$filename" and within that error: "Unkown graphics extension: .eps". Finally, "gnome-open "$shortname.pdf" but it stops there and it didn't show the pdf file. Obviously, the error concerning .eps files is because .pdf doesn't support eps files. And, as far as I can tell, the first one, can be produced because of a known bug (I applied the patch but it didn't solved that problem). However, I don't know why it doesn't compile the pdf file. When I compile the same file using LaTeX -> DIV, even if a get some warnings, the file is compiled correctly. Is this a bug? Any ideas?
