On my Win7 64bit box:
Yes, plot looks fine with Octave-3.6.4 MSVC, 3.8.2-64bit, and 3.9.0+/4.1.0+
32bit, the latter three all cross-built with MXE on Linux here.

Coincidentally I have gs9.07 (32b) both in C:\Programs (d/led & installed
myself) and for octave-3.9.0+/4.1.0+ in the /bin/ subdirectory (built w.

3.6.4: .eps file looks fine. Plot window turns blue for a split second, as
usual when Ghostscript prints a plot.
3.8.2-64b, 3.9.0+, 4.1.0+: No testplot.eps is generated at all. The plot
windows flashes but that's it.

When I add gs9.14 to the PATH for Octave64-3.8.2 (Ghostscript isn't built w
mxe-octave for 64-bit builds), the printed plot is generated fine. The plot
windows flash lasts a bit longer than with gs9.07.
Same for 3.9.0+ & 4.1.0+ (added gs9.14/bin before all other PATH entries).

So it is related to the gs version.

GPU: ?? it's a Lenovo X230 laptop w. Intel HD graphics 4000
I haven't updated the driver since I purchased this laptop (1,5 years ago
