Mouse input to gnuplot in Ubuntu

Chapter 17 of gnuplot pdf manual (Mouse Input) says "The x11, pm, windows, ggi, and wxt terminals allow interaction with the current plot using the mouse." I wonder if my Ubuntu 13.04 has any of those, if not, then perhaps the three terminals (Terminal, UXTerm, Xterm) I can invoke here, maybe they also have the same property? The proper term is: are they mouse capable? Thanks, - A.

When doing a 'show all' in gnuplot it says it uses wxt as terminal type. The fastest way to find out mouse interactivity is this:

start gnuplot
enter plot sin(x)

Move your mouse in the windows which just popped up. You'll see the mouse coordinates in the window's lower left corner.
