Lecturer in applied mathematics, with a rough idea of how to use (La)TeX. Specialities include dirty hacks and using texdoc very quickly.

comment gnuplot within LaTeX using epslatex terminal and pdflatex for compiling
Loading gnuplottex twice causes an error. If I delete the second instance (and add \begin{document} and \end{document}) then your example works fine on my machine.

The float package enables the [H] option, amongst other things.

Have you loaded the float package?

comment embed 2 side by side figures in a two column style. (not spanning the whole page, just say the second column)
Please edit your question so that it includes a complete example code that reproduces the problem. As it stands it will be difficult for anyone to help you.

comment Convert eps figure to grayscale without removing white space around the figure
@Petar --- I don't know anything about OriginPro, but if it's anything like Mathematica in this respect, there may be an option/command to export eps for use by other applications. This might avoid the production of the garbage in the first place.

comment Convert eps figure to grayscale without removing white space around the figure
@Petar --- indeed, some applications put garbage at the start (and sometimes also the end) of eps files. The first line should be something like %!PS-Adobe-3.0 EPSF-3.0; anything before that can be deleted. This garbage may be the reason why pscol doesn't work without eps2eps. What program is generating the original eps files?

@Petar --- that's weird. Can you make the file available for download and add a link to your question?
