Re: octave and gnuplot problem in mac os 10.4

Hi Marius,

I have tried to install gnuplot (on the way to octave) on my new iMac G5 (OS X 10.4.3). So far I have made a mess of it. I am going start all over again. Gnuplot 4.0 and octave 2.1.71 have been working fine on my iMac G3 (OS X 10.3.9) for quite a while.

I will have to say that X11 (on which your gnuplot build is dependent) is a complete mystery to me. I installed X11 on my iMac G3 with no problem. Now I am told

   Note 10.4 customers can install X11 by using the Tiger DVD installer

I have installed Xcode Tools (including the X11SDK.pkg) from my Tiger (10.4.2) DVD installer disk, but I still have no xterm application. It's hard to se how I have X11, and I see nothing other than X11SDK.pkg on the Tiger DVD that might relate to X11.

How do I install X11? Do I need to reinstall a 10.4.2 system on my machine? That really does seem absurd.

I would appreciate any suggestions you might have.

Did you install Aquaterm?

Aquaterm is a dependency of my current build of gnuplot. See:
