2-cent tip: IEEE PDFeXpress compatible PDF file

This is a borrowed 2-cent tip from a source I now don’t recall. (Kindly comment if it was YOU). My apologies in advance for not remembering you.

To create IEEE PDF eXpress compatble PDF files from your LaTex sources: (on Linux)

  1. Create the .dvi file: $ latex  paper.tex
  2. DVI to PS: $  dvips -Ppdf -G0 -tletter paper.dvi
  3. PS to PDF:  ps2pdf -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress paper.ps paper.pdf

And you should be good to go.
