Description of Problem:

The file texmf/tex/latex/graphics/pdftex.def included in the latest (RH7.2 
& rawhide) distro versions of tetex-latex is extremely out of date.  It 
should be replaced with:

The google groups URL:
gives a discussion of why this is so.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to include a PNG or PDF in a pdf{tex/latex} doc, using clip/trim 
directives, and witness the crappy output.

Actual Results:
pdflatex warns that it does not support clipping.
No clipping happens, or it happens incorrectly.

Expected Results:
No warning about clipping should show.
Clipping should have happened.

Additional Information:
The error message that needs to be done away with is:
no clipping support in pdfTeX

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2002-04-18 12:48:53 UTC
Thanks. (For the record, the input file is: 
 HI \includegraphics[clip,width=6cm,trim=1cm 1cm 1cm 1cm]{xfig/piemenu} 
and pdfelatex is used.)
