PGPLOT Installation Instructions: LINUX systems
For LINUX systems, I recommend installing from the source code,
following the standard UNIX
instructions. This will ensure that the library is compiled with the
same version of the compilers that you will use with application
programs, and allows you to select which PGPLOT device drivers are
included in the library.
Precompiled versions are available for some varieties of LINUX,
however, containing a limited set of device drivers. I did not create these
myself, and if you have problems with them, I suggest that you obtain
the source distribution.
If anyone wishes to make other binary packages, I would appreciate it
if they would consult me first.
Linux for Astronomy
PGPLOT is included on the Linux for Astronomy CD-ROMs, available from
The Random Factory.
