Problems with Maxima Draw [SOLVED]


Im using Ubuntu 14.10 (64bit) with Maxima

I'm having a problem with this tutorial:
http://riotorto.users.sourceforge.ne...lot/index.html

The 2d and 3d plotting functions all work as described after
typing:
Code:
load(draw);
In a maxima cell. However I cannot get Maxima to draw any vectors
whatsoever with this tutorial:

http://riotorto.users.sourceforge.ne...ors/index.html

I've attached a screenshot to show what happens, omitting the last $
symbol gives more verbose output:

[gr2d(vector,vector,vector)]

Not sure if I'm missing some packages. I have maxima, maxima-share and wxmaxima installed.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for confusion, the png was just larger than maximum size allowed, posted a new
screen on imgmur below:

.... and just found out that the vector plot is saved in home directory, and not generated
live as is the case with other plots. You can just see the icon for maxima_out.jpg under the maxima window.

P.S. Now found that the line:
terminal=jpg

is responsible for creating the image, remove this line and vector plot is generated
live in maxima like other plots

Will mark post as solved thanks for your help.
