Hello all,

I am trying to create my first LaTex document. I am using TexMaker as a
frontend, running Ubuntu 8.04 as my OS. I have created a few figures using R
with both the .eps and .png file format. Now I wish to import these into my
LaTex document. I thought this would be pretty easy and doubly easu
considering I was using TexMaker. Here is what I have done to try and enter
these figures:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}[dvips]

\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=1]{Graphs PNG/Color Contour SLI.png}
\caption{This is a test.}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

This portion of my document returns this error:

line
48.
! LaTeX Error: File Graphs PNG/Color Contour SLI.png' not found.
See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type H <return> for immediate help.
...
l.48 ...scale=1]{Graphs PNG/Color Contour SLI.png}
Try typing <return> to proceed.
If that doesn't work, type X <return> to quit.
! LaTeX Error: Cannot determine size of graphic in Graphs PNG/Color Contour
SLI
.png (no BoundingBox).
See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type H <return> for immediate help.
...
l.48 ...scale=1]{Graphs PNG/Color Contour SLI.png}
Try typing <return> to proceed.
If that doesn't work, type X <return> to quit.
File: Graphs PNG/Color Contour SLI.png Graphic file (type eps)
<Graphs PNG/Color Contour SLI.png>

Basically, I can't figure out why LaTex can't find my file. I have tried
entering the path manually and using the includegraphics function within
TexMaker using both an .eps file and .png. In both cases my .dvi output
simply displays the title of the figure and an empty black box. I know this
is super simple but all the documentation I have been able to find hasn't
