Xgraph should usually be able to do that.

sudo apt-get install xgraph

Xgraph starts the GUI from a terminal /// command line :

The command for the xgraph-plot-example.txt is :

'xgraph xgraph-plot-example.txt'

I'd imagine Ubuntu also has a Gnuplot package and that's fairly easy to use.

I have good experience with DataScene on SuSE. The web site says it runs on all Linux OSes, though. It has a nice GUI and produces nice charts.

Sorry, I forgot to include the URL to DataScene:

http://www.cyber-wit.com

It seems that the Express edition is free.
