Output file from the tutorial.

Description of problem:
Gwave won't plot any data and crashes from time to time.  

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

How reproducible:
Every time I try it won't plot or read the file normally.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Gwave
2. Click File > Read File
3. Try a different file.
Actual results:
No plot of data.  Headers can be read sometimes.  Trying a second file can cause a crash.

Expected results:
Normally plotting of data.

Additional info:
I am running gwave from a terminal in KDE 4.1 desktop.

Error messages on starting gwave.
  WARNING: (gnome gtk gdk-event): `initialize' imported from both (gnome gw generics) and (oop goops)

The only error message on crash is "Aborted."

While loading a file.
  with-selected "Datafile to load" save=#f defname=#f
  chose file(Datafile to load): "~/mycircuit.out"

I was trying to do this tutorial.

I have included the mycircuit.out as described in the tutorial.

To me this is a high priority for processing some data.

If it is high priority, I'll welcome you try to LabPlot

yum install LabPlot

while I'm trying to fix gwave.

I have recommended LabPlot as an alternative to gwave in the past on my blog. Unfortunately gwave gets easily broken.


E.g for your attachment:

import mycircuit.out
click ok
Speadsheet -> Plot -> Plot 2D

Change your colour if needed.

I have installed LabPlot as I was going to try it on my new F10 install.  It worked but I need to play a bit more with it and colours do need changing.  

Thanks for the quick guide to using it.  I have lowered the priority due to having a work around.

I am going to try gwave on two other machines, both i386 installs to see if there is a difference.

Hello robin, it seems that the gwave on F-11-development does not suffer from this. I'll continue with the testing before updating the F-10 gwave.
