  1. Hi
    I have followed your instructions for installing Maxima on MacOs 10.12.6 on a 2016 MacBook Pro and am having problems with getting GNUPlot to draw graphs within the page using the wxplot2D command. I can get GNUPlot to draw the graph in a separate window using plot2D command. However, using the wxplot2d command I get an error message saying “can’t open the file /Users/sidebotham 1/ – I can send a full screen shot of the message. I have installed your terminal script. Am not a command line user!
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks David


    1. David, thanks for your note.
      I wonder from the error message you quote if the space in the file name is causing lisp some trouble. Maybe switching flavors of lisp will help. try this:

      wxMaxima —> Preferences… —> Maxima,

      in the “Additional Parameters” text box type
      -l sbcl

      (those are lower case “L”, not 1)

      then close the window, restart maxima, and try the wxplot command again.

      Does wxdraw work as expected?

      fingers crossed…
