Summary: The simple X11 terminal is disabled in gnuplot-nowx.
The old version of gnuplot had the simple X11 terminal builtin, and that is
a very useful one for previewing plots, or scripting gnuplot for live
In any case, it was a feature that was present and is now missing after a
I understand that there is the more advanced X11/WxWidgets interactive
terminal and that for that there is a separate package now, but I don't
need that one (it's rather slow and overkill for my uses). Would you please
restore the functionality of the gnuplot package to include the normal
old-style x11 terminal?
As it is now, the recent update is a serious regression for users that
actually use gnuplot themselves (or a tool that uses gnuplot's x11 terminal
for live display). I hope there is no new packaging policy that forbids
basic X11 libs as dependency for the normal package...
