printing landscape PDFs
I'm having difficulties with downloaded PDFs (presumably created with MS
software) which are sort-of-landscape but not really. They appear to be
formatted, instead of letter landscape, as 11x8.5in portrait. They
render fine with gv, ggv, etc., but I can't print the little beasts
because they come out printed portrait and truncated at the right
margin. I've tried manually specifying landscape in gv and ggv, but the
result is a mess. I can't find a way to specify rotation as an option
on lprng's lpr.
This must be a common issue, as there are a lot of such PDFs out on the
Web. What workarounds have been found? Am I missing something obvious?
