I don't know if Homebrew supports qt or not. You might experiment with
that ... or ask the Homebrew help list.

Homebrew definitely doens't provide Aquaterm. But if you are up to a
bit of hacking, you'll first need to download and install Aquaterm

And then setup the Homebrew build of gnuplot to link to the Aquaterm
libs. If you need help with that, please inquire on the Homebew and/or
gnuplot help lists.

Beware of multiple installs of Aquaterm and/or gnuplot. You'll save
yourself a lot of head-aches if you only have one of each installed on
your computer.



That appears to have worked. I reinstalled gnuplot as you described, and set GNUTERM to X11. Now I can plot.

Consider your warning about multiple installs heeded.

Thanks very much for your time.
