A commonly reported problem with ps2pdf is that it does not always guess the page orientation right.

A neat solution is here http://allendowney.com/essays/orientation/

I just edited the gs_statd.ps to define the wide page and added an alias in my bashrc called widepdf to convert files to pdf in the wide format. It works great now!!
