The command used to work, but since an update to GNUPlot (not

add various dashed line options (again this is a bit off topic but I
assume someone else in the gretl community has dealt with this). The
idea is to make a plot that is in color but also works in grayscale
for print publication.
Ah OK. Here's a post that I had previously found useful:
I think this is only semi-offtopic because gretl uses gnuplot so tightly

I think this is changed from gnuplot 4 to 5. Quoting from the linked
[In version 5] "The terminal options dashed and solid are ignored. By
default all lines are solid. To change them to dashed, use e.g.
set for [i=1:8] linetype i dashtype i"
So the new gnuplot option 'dashtype' would play the central role.
