Description Feng Yu 2007-10-19 00:11:06 EDT
Description of problem:
inline plotting doesn't work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. from 'Plotting' menu, choose Plot 2d
2. input sin(x) in expressions
3. choose inline as format
4. click OK

Actual results:
One line of reply:
"Output file "/home/rainwoodman/maxout.png"."
and below it, 
a BIG X in a box.

Expected results:
the plotting of sin(x)

Additional info:
/home/rainwoodman/maxout.png doenot exist.
if I run 
$ gnuplot /home/rainwoodman/maxout.gnuplot
the output is
gnuplot> set terminal png picsize 400 250; set zeroaxis;; 
         "/home/rainwoodman/maxout.gnuplot", line 3: invalid color spec, must be

It should be related to the old_gnuplot patch of wxMaxima.fc6 235155.

Reverting the patch should solve the problem.
