I upgraded my Octave installation, and now find that I can't plot

prefer to keep using it.

I get the error

gnuplot: unable to open display ':0.0'
gnuplot: X11 aborted.

I have a .gnuplot file  with the line

set terminal aqua 0 fname "Verdana"

Gnuplot works on its own, and apparently sees this line,
because the plot that comes up uses the Verdana font.

Googling the issue lead me to a thread that I started back
in 2006 when I first started using Octave.  I've checked to
verify that I'm still using those suggested settings.

I'm using Octave 3.0.5, gnuplot 4.0, and Aquaterm 1.0
on OS X 10.5.6.

Any ideas?



How did you "upgrade"?

Are you using Fink, DarwinPorts, or a binary distribution?

If either the 1st or 2nd, edit your ~/.profile ... or if you don't have one edit your ~/.bashrc and add the line

        export GNUTERM=aqua

Be sure to use an ascii editor (not RTF or Word, etc). One easy solution is to start X11, open a terminal window and type "xedit .bashrc"

If that doesn't work modify "xedit .profile"
