[Tex/LaTex] LaTeX Error: Unknown graphics extension: .ps


When I try to compile this file http://danjer.doudouke.org/_media/tech/dokutexit/playground.zip this error occurs:

! LaTeX Error: Unknown graphics extension: .ps.

I'm using TeXworks Version 0.4.3 (MiKTeX 2.9) and pdfLaTeX.

    pdfLaTeX arguments

  2. You can compile it with XeLaTeX, which is directly supported by TeXworks. You can choose XeLaTeX in the drop-down menu.

    For compiling with XeLaTeX, remove these two lines from the preamble, as XeLaTeX natively supports UTF-8:

  3. Use LaTeX in DVI-mode, and convert as needed, using dvips and ps2pdf, or dvipdfm(x). You can call latex at the command prompt, or define a new tool for TeXworks in the preferences:
