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

comment Text in table is defaced for no apparent reason
There is no Large environment. What happens if you delete \begin{Large} and \end{Large} and instead put \Large immediately after \begin{center}?

comment Texmacs to latex conversion failing to convert user macros
I don't know anything about TeXmacs, but I suspect you may need to provide more detail about the problem before anyone can help you.

comment Avoid latex rotating pages orientation
I think this may be a problem with the eps file. Can you make it available for download and add a link to your question?

comment Weird behaviour in Texmaker (Changing the papersize)
Your example works ok for me. What size is shown in Adobe Reader if you compile your code, open the resulting pdf and select file -> properties?

Are you compiling with pdflatex (which accepts jpg images) or latex+dvips (which does not)?

comment caption overlapped on plot label
@bluePhlavio --- the most likely cause of an image overlapping a caption is a problem with the image itself, but since I can't reproduce the issue my efforts so far have been guesswork. I suggest you compose a short, complete example consisting of the tex file(s), gnuplot script, data file(s) (if needed), the files generated by gnuplot and the -eps-converted-to.pdf' file, and add this to your question. Images can be uploaded to remote hosting sites and linked from here.

comment caption overlapped on plot label
I'm not suggesting that you use \includegraphics directly. Just convert the eps files produced by gnuplot to pdf using eps2pdf so that pdflatex doesn't need to do it.

Please edit your question so that it includes a complete example code that reproduces this behaviour.

comment caption overlapped on plot label
When pdflatex encounters an eps image it converts it to pdf; it appears that the problem originates at this step of the process. The converted files have names such as 'fig-eps-converted-to.pdf'. What happens if you remove these and do the conversions yourself using epstopdf?
