Download XGRAPH for LINUX

To install, just gunzip and untar:
                tar   xvfz   xgraph_4.30.tar.gz
Unpacks to XGraph directory. The executable is under the "bin" directory, called "xgraph".
A test data file, "test_xy2.dat" is in the top directory.

Usage:

Make an alias to bin/xgraph in your .bashrc file:
Example:
            alias xgraph=/home/bart/XGraph/bin/xgraph

Plot data files.
Example:
            xgraph test_xy.dat

Alternatively, navigate to the bin directory in your file-browser,
and double-click xgraph. Then under the File menu, select
Read New File to pick your data file(s) to plot.

To un-install, delete the XGraph directory.

For saving graphs as images, XGraph relies on the Netpbm utilities.
If you do not have them, you can get them from Netpbm, or contact xgraphadmin@xgraph.org and
include the Operating System version you are using.

Notes -

  • Ubuntu Unity Desktop users - The Unity desktop attempts to move XGRAPH's menu-bar to the top of your desktop screen.
    There are several ways to suppress this feature. One method is to add the following alias to your .bashrc file:
            alias xgraph='UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0; {path}/bin/xgraph'
    ... where {path} is the location where you unpacked XGraph on your system.
    Then open a new shell window, and you should be good to go.
