From the menu Tools, Gnuplot of Gretl Quartz 1.9.13 I'm running
It starts with the message "Unknown or ambiguous terminal name

The gnuplot command show term gives: terminal type is unknown.
I also tried plotting but no plots appear.
I used otool -L gnuplot to see if gnuplot is linked to Aquaterm (there is an Aquaterm
and a libaquaterm.dylib embedded in the Gretl.app).
But when I plot a something from within Gretl's main window I get a nice plot.
So what is Gretl asking gnuplot to do?
I've also made a gnuplot script and that also doesn't seem to plot anything.
What's going on?
Urgh, originally I had an aquaterm-enabled build of gnuplot for the
gretl-quartz package, but it looks as if when I updated the build at some
point the aquaterm linkage somehow got dropped.
This isn't a problem with plots generated by gretl, since they use
gnuplot's pngcairo "terminal" to output a PNG file, and that works fine.
And in my testing on the Mac I didn't think to check the stand-alone
gnuplot functionality after I verified it originally.
OK, so I need to rebuild gnuplot.
BTW: window switching now working with no problems. Thanks a lot for
this. Gretl quartz is a pleasure to use now and a lot faster in starting
up than the X-version.
That's good to hear.
