I downloaded and built octave 3.6.2 on a Ubuntu 12.04 amd64 system.

configure and make completed with no errors.

make check said all passed

make install OK.

I have gnuplot 4.4, patchlevel 3.

I have in my environment GNUTERM=xterm and TERM=xterm

gnuplot plots OK.

In octave,

1> t=[-pi:.01:pi];

2> plot(t,sin(t))

nothing, no error, no plot, nothing.

Strange.

If I unset term and gnuterm,

I a random binary group of characters on the screen.

starting with

1> t=[-pi:.01:pi];

2> plot(t,sin(t))

gnuplot> set terminal x11 enhanced title "Figure 1" size 560,420

position 300,460

...

I am missing something, but, what?
