Dear Syah,

the answer depends on the way you're creating .eps file. I'm assuming that
you're using the gmx do_dssp then gmx xpm2ps.
something like this can be used:

gmx do_dssp -f final.xtc -s my.tpr -n new.ndx -map first.map -tu ns -b 700
-e 1000 -o protein.xpm

gmx xpm2ps -f protein.xpm -di scale.m2p -title top -bx 8.0 -by 50 -o

if the x-axis ticks is the problem, you can change the font or anything
related to it, in the .m2p file. (
I hope you find it useful.

Best regards,
