Please quote correctly (no full quote at the end). I do not
understand, what you mean with "however" and therefore not
the sense of the sentence.

You are using plain format with miniltx?

Option "bb" does not make sense, options "viewport" or "trim"
are supported. The can be combined with "clip". See "grfguide"
for explanation of graphicx options.

You can use "graphicx" with both LaTeX formats and
plain formats by the help of miniltx.
