# [texhax] pstricks and pdflatex

Sat Oct 22 02:37:22 CEST 2011

Hello,

Thank you for maintaining the web-site, it has been and continues to be very
useful to me whenever I have to learn something new about TeX.

I am writing because I have a problem with PSTricks that I do not seem to be
a ble to solve, even after several hours of trying to follow the
instructions on your web-site. I simply want to learn how to compile using
PDFLaTeX a file containing PSTricks objects (such as psmatrix). I have tried
http://tug.org/PSTricks/main.cgi?file=pdf/pdfoutput) that describe how to
use the package auto-pst-pdf (including enabling write18 appropriately), but
to no avail. The file compiles without errors, but the psmatrix does not
appear in the final pdf file.

included the code below.

Thank you,
