Hi Dennis,

Sure, this works out but I need to produce ps and pdf documents so I
have to use dvips and ps2pdf, not pdflatex. I also need to convert all my
ps file to pdf file by epstopdf, which is OK, but may not
be perfect. I still like to have a solution that can work it on the level
of producing ps file from R environment.
