How to reproduce:
Take any .eps file and open it. A dialog displays "Graphics filter not found" and the file is not opened.
This is a regression since 4.0. Reproducible on Linux but not Windows XP.
(It's good to be aware that there are also other unrelated EPS issues: #64161, #67465)
Marking as WFM
Bodhi Linux x64
Version 18.104.22.168 release
Attached you'll find a EPS and the resulting draw file that I created after opening it.
Seems like you are missing some dependencies there - how did you install LibreOffice? What distro? Did you purge whatever version you had prior?
If running Ubuntu we recommend sticking with the official ppa - if you installed from TDF (libreoffice.org) let us know so we are aware but purge LibreOffice completely and install from the official ppa.

Resulting Draw File
I downloaded the LibreOffice x86 .deb release for comparison and the bug is not there.
It's most likely a bug in the Ubuntu package 1:4.1.0-0ubuntu1~precise1~ppa1 (x86). I'll report this issue to the Ubuntu packaging team.
Ill add our Canonical person just so he is aware.
Bjoern - looks like ubuntu specific
I'm reopening this for Bjoern or someone else to confirm the issue.
UNCONFIRMED is correct status - changing
Not only a Ubuntu-packinging-problem. The same bug appears in packages of OpenSUSE.
Isn't a problem of LO.
This also a problem in Gentoo
Attempts to EPS import and export both give the "Graphics filter not found" error.
Bug report here:
Is there some advice that can be given to packagers on what needs to be done differently in 4.1 for the eps import/export filters to work?
confirmed by multiple downstream bugs

> confirmed by multiple downstream bugs
Could be I don't understand right, but ...
Nobody has ever confirmed this bug appears in the original packages from LO. All confirmations come from other packages: Ubuntu, SuSE ...
When I open LO 22.214.171.124 directly from LO I could import *.eps-files. When I try the same with 126.96.36.199 from SUSE I couldn't import *.eps-files.
I believe Robert is correct. The official builds don't show the problem, but downstream builds since 4.04 do.
Is there something different required in the build environment to allow the eps import/export filters to be found?
I have just opened a document with connected *.tif-files. The same procedure. LO, installed from OpenSUSE-packages, doesn't work. It doesent show any *.tif-image and when I try to insert a new *tif-image the dialog "Graphics filter not found" appears.
The same version, installed from LO directly, works. There is a file libgraphicfilterlo.so. When I look at LO 188.8.131.52 from OpenSUSE it is 95,3 kb. When I look at LO 184.108.40.206 from LO directly, it's 141,4 kb.
Likely same root cause as fdo#68210: mergedlibs broke between 4.0 and 4.1.
I can confirm that on gentoo, when --enable-mergedlibs is removed from the configure command, the eps import/export problem goes away.
Not strictly speaking a dupe, but caused by the same root cause as fdo#68210
