Description Andrei 2007-08-18 19:59:17 UTC
In wxmaxima-0.7.2 ("~x86") when I try to use inline plotting I get an error. I think this is a dependency issue -- probably something small is missing on my gentoo, but I don't know what.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run wxmaxima
2. wxplot2d([sin(x)], [x,-5,5])

Actual Results:  
It says
Output file "/home/andu/maxout.png"
and I see a bounding box with a word "Error" in it.

Expected Results:  
I think there should be a picture in the bounding box.

My only guess was to check whether my gnuplot can generate png files - it can.

Post ebuild version, emerge --info and the actual error you get, someone might even help them; until them, your guess is as good as ours.
Comment 2 Andrei 2007-09-02 14:49:25 UTC
I've found the solution for my problem:

It is either possible to solve my problem by changing the default settings of wxmaxima or by upgrading to gnuplot-4.2 with gd support.
