Hallo Thomas,

a user of our Debian packages has reported a bug (you might also say
feature request) for the seminar.con file you provide along with the
seminar package. When you process the following small file:


% \input seminar.bug
% \input seminar.bg2

\centerline{Slide Test}

with latex-dvips-ps2pdf, this gives PDF files in landscape orientation,
because of the following (the only) line in seminar.con:


However, with pdflatex, the slide is typeset in landscape, but the page
is displayed as portrait, and therefore the slide is truncated on the

I guess this can be easily corrected like this:

+  \ifpdf
+    some code I don't know
+  \else
+    \special{landscape}%
+  \fi

But I do not know which special commands are needed for PDF. Do you
know, or should I ask Heiko Oberdiek?
