Hi everybody,

but when executing make command I have the the problem related to X11
output as follow:
gcc -c -Wall -fPIC -DPG_PPU -O -I/usr/include/ -I/usr/include /usr/local/src/pgplot/drivers/xwdriv.c
/usr/local/src/pgplot/drivers/xwdriv.c:127:21: X11/Xos.h: No such file or directory

Can you give some suggestions on that, thanks in advance.

Looks like you need to install X development packages.
