Hi again,
I have the option -shell -escape (as it installs by default mactex2009)

The console says
[Loading MPS to PDF converter (version 2006.09.02).]
)sh: epstopdf : command not found
This message appears on the notebook but in imac works fine, the installation is the same. I do not understand why.

The file is: (latex tempalte fron texshop)
\usepackage{geometry}                % See geometry.pdf to learn the layout options. There are lots.
\geometry{letterpaper}                   % ... or a4paper or a5paper or ... 
%\geometry{landscape}                % Activate for for rotated page geometry
%\usepackage[parfill]{parskip}    % Activate to begin paragraphs with an empty line rather than an indent
\DeclareGraphicsRule{.tif}{png}{.png}{`convert #1 `dirname #1`/`basename #1 .tif`.png}

\title{Brief Article}
\author{The Author}
%\date{}                                           % Activate to display a given date or no date




and the log file:
