Thanks again for the swift help. Using the -V 4 on the command line worked.
But I am slightly confused now.
In /usr/share/texmf/dvipdfmx I have
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7043 2008-05-15 13:18 dvipdfmx.cfg
Which defines :
%% PDF Version Setting
%% PDF (minor) version stamp to use in output file.
%% This also implies maximal version of PDF file allowed to be included.
%% Dvipdfmx does not support 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 since TrueType font embedded
%% as CIDFontType2 requires at least version 1.3. Transparent imaging
%% model requires version 1.4. So if you want soft-masking support for
%% PNG image with alpha channels, you should set version to 4 or higher.
% V 4
So why wasn't it working already ...?
