-There are three functional Gnuplot-5.0.3 ​installations:​+There are four functional Gnuplot installations:​
  
-  - version with qt graphics, intended for use on a visualisation node, installed in ''/​apps/​chpc/​compmech/​gnuplot/​bin''​ +  - Version 5.2.7 with qt graphics. ​ By default this is intended for a graphics-capable session, such as a VNC session or an interactive PBS session with X-forwarding. ​ You can get access to this version ​with <​code>​ module load chpc/​compmech/​gnuplot/​5.2.7-qt </​code> ​ If you do not want the qt output, set the appropriate terminal type. 
-  - A version ​with X11 graphics, intended for use with X-forwarding,​ installed in ''/​apps/​chpc/​compmech/​gnuplot-X-5.0.3/​bin''​ +  - Version 5.0.3 with qt graphics, intended for use on a visualisation node, installed in ''/​apps/​chpc/​compmech/​gnuplot/​bin''​ 
-  - A version ​with no graphics, intended for use on a compute node, installed in ''/​apps/​chpc/​compmech/​gnuplot-dumb-5.0.3/​bin''​+  - Version 5.0.3 with X11 graphics, intended for use with X-forwarding,​ installed in ''/​apps/​chpc/​compmech/​gnuplot-X-5.0.3/​bin''​

-All of these are available as modules, please use ''​module avail''​. ​ Please refer to the [[http://​www.gnuplot.info/​|Gnuplot web site]] for instructions on using gnuplot. ​ For interactive graphics, a graphics-enabled environment will be required, therefore refer to the page on [[howto:​remote_viz|Remote Visualization]] for instructions on setting up a connection to the visualization node.  Gnuplot has been around for 30 years, but is still very useful. ​ The "​dumb"​ terminal mode can be used to generate funky 1970's style ASCII graphics - a feature that can be surprisingly handy when checking convergence of cluster runs over a low-bandwidth connection.  ​+All of these are available as modules, please use ''​module avail 2>&1 grep gnuplot''​. ​ Please refer to the [[http://​www.gnuplot.info/​|Gnuplot web site]] for instructions on using gnuplot. ​ For interactive graphics, a graphics-enabled environment will be required, therefore refer to the page on [[howto:​remote_viz|Remote Visualization]] for instructions on setting up a connection to the visualization node.  Gnuplot has been around for 30 years, but is still very useful. ​ The "​dumb"​ terminal mode can be used to generate funky 1970's style ASCII graphics - a feature that can be surprisingly handy when checking convergence of cluster runs over a low-bandwidth connection.  ​
