How can we help you, when you don't actually say what's wrong?? We can't guess. Provide the error(s) that you're getting, what you're doing to GET them, etc.

sudo apt-cache search plplot

Or open Synaptic and type plplot in the "Search window".

The install instructions for plplot 5.9.2 :

Install ' plplot-tcl ' etc. etc. with Synaptic.
Or use the command : sudo apt-get install plplot-tcl

Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PLplot
PLPLOT home http://plplot.sourceforge.net/
Documentation http://plplot.sourceforge.net/docboo...ot-html-5.9.5/
Download http://plplot.sourceforge.net/download.php > >
> > the Ubuntu packages, overview :
http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?ke...ll&section=all

Building plplot-5.9.5 : 1) cd plplot-5.9.5/ , 2) mkdir build
3) cd build/ , 4) cmake .. ( cmake <space> <period><period> )
The text output in the terminal will show, what's included in the
configuration / Makefile : tcl/tk , wxwidgets, pyqt4, python, etc.

4) make : will build the binaries and the libraries.

sunitverma && sunitverma04 && ? Two LQ user names. Why ?

svn co https://plplot.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/plplot/trunk plplot

Required libs to be installed to build with "plstripc" / pld support :
sudo apt-get install libfreetype6-dev pdl

And then you can build a new plplot.
( Delete everything in plplot/build/ )
cmake .. && make
.....

Google .. plstripc command ..
Examples :
http://www.koders.com/perl/fid803C9F...px?s=parse#L34

http://plplot.sourceforge.net/docboo.../plstripc.html
.....

--------------------------------
May be easier to use GNUPLOT ? Google .. stripplot gnuplot ..
