Hello dear Octave Gurus,

I have installed octave "alright",
i.e., I tried a few things and they worked ...,

but plotting does NOT.
I have installed and tested out  gnuplot alright.

Here is a sample session:

warning: plot: unable to open pipe to `gnuplot'
octave:2> quit
        Gnuplot is here :
