GnuPlot installation in Ubuntu 12.04

We need to make sure some packages are already installed before we try to compile gnuplot

  1. sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-dev libpango1.0-dev libreadline5-dev libx11-dev libxt-dev texinfo libgd2-xpm-dev
  2. wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnuplot/files/gnuplot/4.4.0/gnuplot-4.4.0.tar.gz/download
  3. tar xzf gnuplot-4.4.0.tar.gz
  4. cd  gnuplot-4.4.0
  5. ./configure
  6. sudo make install
