currently I am using

gs -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -q -sDEVICE=pdfwrite sOutputFile=combined.pdf input1.pdf input2.pdf input3.pdf

for combining my pdf files, however I have noticed, that combined.pdf according to evince's document properties has a paper size of "231 x 314 mm". Is there a way to fix this?

thanks. This answers my question. Though it does not really solve my problem, since I want to merge multiple documents before printing them, to save paper. I just realized that some of them are .ps files. I think I will stick with gs for a while. – niklasfi Dec 21 '11 at 8:13
