A little bit of trial and error got me to this set of class options (note,
in particular, the portrait option):

  slidesonly,%  Try notes or notesonly instead.
  %notes,%      Use instead of slidesonly to typeset the notes.
  %notesonly,%  Use instead of slidesonly to typeset notes and slides.
  %semcolor,%   Try me if using PSTricks.
  semrot,%     Try me if using Rokicki's dvips.
  %semhelv,%    Try me if using a PostScript printer.
  %article,%    Try me.
  portrait,%   Try me.
  sem-a4,%     Try me if using A4 paper.
  semlayer%     This must be included, but you need the semcolor option to
  ]{seminar}                                  % actually see the overlays.

Run LaTeX then convert to ps (with something like dvi2ps -P pdf -t A4) or to
pdf (or use pdflatex.
