Hey everybody

ive just set up a dual boot with ubuntu and vista and must say how smooth the whole thing went! Im already only using vista when absolutely necessary!

However ive had a bit of trouble with the following and was wondering if any one can help:

--i downloaded gnuoctave via the repositries and its seems to work fine in the terminal initially. I can define variables etc... however if i go plot a function i get the following error:

octave:1> x = linspace(0, 2*pi, 100);

octave:2> y = sin(x);

octave:3> plot(x, y);

sh: gnuplot: not found

sh: gnuplot: not found

error: compare_versions: version numbers must be a single row

error: evaluating if command near line 78, column 3

error: called from `compare_versions' in file `/usr/share/octave/3.0.0/m/miscellaneous/compare_versions.m'

error: evaluating if command near line 45, column 5

error: called from `drawnow' in file `/usr/share/octave/3.0.0/m/plot/drawnow.m'

does this mean its as simple as installing gnuplot?

--also does anyone know of any good tutorials on how to install the R statistics package? i can only seem to find a GUI version in the repos...

--another thing ive noticed is that if i have firefox open at the same time as the terminal, and close the terminal then firefox will automatically close.. is this just a setting ive changed inadvertently or something?

Thanks heaps
