Description Alfred de Wijn 2006-06-20 10:15:28 EDT
Description of problem:
epstopdf rotates my eps files 90 degrees.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
EPSTOPDF 2.7, 2001/03/05

How reproducible:
Problem occurs on all my eps figures.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. epstopdf figure.eps > figure.pdf
Actual results:
Figure in pdf format, but rotated 90 degrees.

Expected results:
Figure in pdf format, in the same orientation as the original.

Additional info:
It seems that gs attempts to guess the page orientation when converting to pdf
by looking at text orientation.  In the case of epstopdf, this behavior is
undesired.  The solution is to tell gs to not rotate the figure using
-dAutoRotatePages=/None.  A patch is attached.

This same bug was identified some time ago in Debian
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=131570), but is does not seem
to have propaged upstream.

Fixed in tetex-3.0-20.FC5. The epstopdf is updated to 2.9 what resolves this issue.
