Thanks. This one worked.
I also tried Vlad's tags but they didn't work any better. The image was
missing. But with the graphic-tag, the images
embed providing that they are pixmaps (doesn't seem to work with eps). I
don't know why the mediaobject didn't work out.
I can live with the graphic tag right now. This has taken me time from
the last week when I started fighting with this. I will export from
Umbrello as png since the graphic tag didn't seem to work with eps. 
I haven't tried Apache Fob yet because there seem to be no packages for
it to Ubuntu [Feisty] and I have been too lazy to obtain the
source/binary/whatever in the traditional way without the convenience of
Best Wishes,

	Hope it helps.

		I am in process of writing the specification of UI
framework (meaning 
		Hildon Desktop & Control panel) and we have chosen
docbook xml format. I
		am quite new to docbook and don't know really all the
tricks with it, so
		maybe somebody of you would know better:
		Here is my question: I have tried to embed images on the
document (for 
		example screenshot, diagrams etc. with different
formats), but for some
		reason it haven't worked for me, the image caption gets
on its place
		etc. but there is no picture in the pdf, so would you
have some idea 
		what migth I been doing wrong?
		I have tried to embed a screenshot of hildon desktop
like this:
		     <figure><title>Hildon Desktop: Task Navigator,
Status bar,
		           <imagedata fileref="hildondesktop.jpg"
		           <phrase>Screenshot of Hildon Desktop</phrase>
		Then I tried to embed another image like this: 
		        <figure><title>Example MSC</title>
		            <textobject><phrase>Example message
		Neither of these images are visible in the generated
		Obviously there might be something wrong in the command
line used to
		generate the pdf, currently it has been like this:
		docbook2pdf hildon-desktop-spec.xml -o pdf
		I am getting some latex warnings though, but not sure
what they mean, as 
		I am not a latex guru.
		Any ideas? Thanks.
