Description Sato Ichi 2011-08-07 22:18:53 UTC
Description of problem: The gnuplot package in Fedora 15 x86_64 is missing the lua/tikz terminal type.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.4.2-3.fc15

How reproducible: Trying to set the gnuplot terminal type to lua results in an error message that there is no such terminal.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gnuplot.
2. In gnuplot enter the command "set terminal lua tikz".

Actual results: Get an error message saying "unknown or ambiguous terminal type; type just 'set terminal' for a list". Running "set terminal" does not show lua as one of the available terminal types.

Expected results: Running "set terminal lua tikz" should result in a message saying "Terminal type set to 'lua'". Running "set terminal" should show "lua  Lua PGF/TikZ terminal for LaTeX2e" in the list of available terminals.

Additional info: Adding the --with-lua option to the configure command in the gnuplot.spec file in the source RPM fixes the problem:

# create full version of gnuplot
%configure --with-readline=gnu --with-png --without-linux-vga \
 --enable-history-file --with-lua

Comment 1 Alphonse Steiner 2011-11-01 10:47:26 UTC
I can confirm this bug in FC16, and the fix:
- adding '--with-lua' in the configure of the full version;
- adding 'BuildRequires: lua-devel' in the preamule.

Comment 2 Alphonse Steiner 2011-11-01 11:39:01 UTC
Actually, only the BuildRequires is needed and missing, since lua is enabled by default.
