[texhax] dvips/eps problems with slides

I have a problem with preparing slide presentations with Winedt/MikTeX.
I have asked the Winedt people, they referred me to TUG.


I'm trying to prepare a slide presentation (for Friday morning) using

WinEdt and latex (lots of maths). I want to produce them in pdf form,

but am having a nightmare trying to get them to work (in landscape).
There are two

alternatives, but neither is working ...



1. If I use the dvi2pdf converter in the winedt toolbar, I cant get

the pdf output to come out in landscape mode, despite having used the

following in latex



\documentclass[landscape]{seminar}            (by the way, the 'slides'

class doesn't do it either). I have also tried the following


\usepackage[landscape]{geometry}               but that doesn't help




Is this a problem with adobe distiller setup? I've tried setting

landscape defaults in there too but that doesn't work. Can you advise

how to fix this?



2. If I use the dvips and then the ps2pdf tools in the toolbar,

this produces a landscape pdf output, but none of the .eps figures

appear. These are included in the latex with


\usepackage{epsfig}       I've also tried     \usepackage{pstricks}   to

no avail.



Are you able to advise on how to get either of these methods (preferably

both) to work?



Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks,
