I'm trying to see some waveform plots for SPICE circuits with
ngspice. As far as I can tell, the
plot command is supposed to raise a window with a nice chart in it. But I keep getting this error message:
ERROR: (internal) This operation is not defined for display type printf. Can't open viewport for graphics.
I'm on linux mint 17.3 (ubuntu 10.04 lucid?).
libxaw-devas per https://askubuntu.com/questions/461466/cant-open-viewport-for-graphics-in-ng-spice/575866#575866
- Compiling from source as per https://sourceforge.net/p/ngspice/bugs/263/#27fb
- compiling with
xhost +, just in case
But I'm still seeing this error message. Any ideas?
