# texpower + dvips + ps2pdf

Hi,

I wonder whether the following is a really frequent question, but I haven't been able
to figure it out. Sorry!

config.landscapeplus from the contrib directory.

Now I am trying to process the example file seminardemo.tex, which I have copied to a
small test directory.
The processing method I am trying to use is latex -> dvips -> ps2pdf.

However, when I open the resulting pdf file in acrobat, it's not landscape, and the
image is also offset in a strange way.

I attach a log of what exactly I do, I hope there is a simple fix to this problem :)

Many thanks!!
