Weird PS files needed

As you may know, i'm currently working on adding PS support to okular. It's currently more or less working, the problem is most files i have around here are result of a few programs "printing" to PS, so most of them are basically "the same in their internals" and thus are quite unuseful for testing. What i need are PS files with different page sizes, different page rotations, etc. the weirder the better. If you have or know where to get some of this kind of files, please mail me at aacid@kde.org with the details.

Have you tried a google filetype search?
For example, gg:filetype:ps in Konqi.

How about some of the postscript fractals list in assignment 3 here:

Try this one, from your own HDD:

/usr/share/cups/data/testprint.ps

This is off topic, but will there be a `rotate' tool in Okular? I miss that in KPDF --- some pdf's are `landscape printed', but perhaps not correctly annotated as such, and you have to tilt your head sideways to read them...

oh yes, rotating would be great, because I have a rotating screen, but the long axis of screen and document are always crossing, not parallels. would be very nice when reading long documents.

@anonymous #3 and #4:
This function is in okular since ages.

oKular seems to be pretty cool, from all descriptions I read.

Will there be oKular packages for openSUSE-10.2 that support PDF viewing too?

So far, and since *ages*, all openSUSE-10.2 oKular packages always ship without PDF support.

...and I have not much use for all the other supported formats. PDF is *essential*!
