Hi John,

I'm not sure what Org mode is doing behind the scenes, but I suspect something is getting muddled because you specify both the src block file header /and/ the output terminal in the gnu plot code.

Perhaps a simpler solution - if you indeed want Postscript images - would be to remove the =:file …= header argument and specify the =set output= within the gnuplot script itself?  That should still generate the .eps file.

I have the following gnuplot/babel block and for some reason the resultant .eps file comes up broken but a corresponding version of it gets converted to pdf somehow... what's going on? I stole an example just to check and make sure it wasn't my gnuplot code: http://t16web.lanl.gov/Kawano/gnuplot/intro/plotfunc-e.html

#+begin_src gnuplot :file export.eps :exports results

set terminal postscript eps color enhanced 20

 set xrange [0:1]
 set yrange [0:4]
 plot f(x)


I get a file export.eps which is broken and unreadable by geeqie. I get a corresponding file called export-eps-converted-to.pdf that opens fine and looks like it should.

What am I doing incorrectly?
