I am an ultra-newbie, so please forgive the very basic level of my query. I am trying to get plplot output to an X terminal window, and I can't seem to be able to do it.
I downloaded and installed plplot 5.9.9 a few days ago on my cygwin installation on a windows 7 laptop. I have Xwin installed, and get other apps using X11 fine (eg xterm, grace).
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=install -DENABLE_tk=ON -DENABLE_tcl=OFF -DBUILD_TEST=ON ../plplot-5.9.9
Everything seem to go fine, and I got:
- Looking for XOpenDisplay in /usr/lib/libX11.dll.a;/usr/lib/libXext.dll.a - found
- Found X11: /usr/lib/libX11.dll.a
- X11_FOUND = 1
- X11_INCLUDE_DIR = /usr/include
- X11_COMPILE_FLAGS = -I/usr/include
- X11_LIBRARIES = /usr/lib/libX11.dll.a;/usr/lib/libXext.dll.a
in the output from cmake.
Then I did the "make" and "make install". Again, everything seem to be fine and no complaints.
When I go though to examples/c (or examples/f77 or examples/f95) and run x01c, the menu that comes up doesn't have a choice of xwin or xterm:
PLplot library version: 5.9.9
< 1> ps PostScript File (monochrome)
< 2> psc PostScript File (color)
< 3> xfig Xfig file
< 4> null Null device
< 5> mem User-supplied memory device
< 6> svg Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG 1.1)
Enter device number or keyword:
If I choose "1" and get a ps file, it is correct with the four graphs.
I've been struggling with this for a couple of days now, trying new installs etc., but not getting anywhere.
Advice very much appreciated!

I'm also a newbie, but I'm not sure if Xwin was successfully installed on your system, are you really sure?
I didn't know well how you get it, but when I run a code with PLplot the first plotting option is Xwin. If you're not sure, maybe you have to search a package which contains Xwin. Since I'm newbie too, I think I can't help you, but if you have some problems about how to compile, I can send a code to you to test.
Also I have a problem with Xwin because it flickers a little bit, but it's quite good.
