I am using plotlib 0.46 on macosx 10.10 with Scilab 5.5.1 Steps to reproduce the problem: use of any plot function 1. -->t=linspace(0,2*%pi,128); -->plot(t,[sin(t);cos(t)]); 2. [X,Y]=meshgrid(linspace(-1,1,20),linspace(-1,1,20)); quiver(X,Y,-X,Y,'og'); Expected result: a graph :-) Actual result: 1. !--error 4 Variable non définie : _mainPlot at line 28 of function plot called by : plot(t,[sin(t);cos(t)]) 2. !--error 4 Variable non définie : _mainPlot at line 17 of function quiver called by : quiver(X,Y,-X,Y,'og'); Moreover, I have another error (which might be related to the _mainPlot one): -->legend("something") AVERTISSEMENT : legend : some superfluous labels have been ignored !--error 246 Fonction non définie pour le type d'argument donné, Vérifier les arguments ou définir la fonction %pltlibH_size pour la surcharge. at line 3 of function getvalidchildren called by : at line 39 of function scilab_legend called by : at line 39 of function processLegend called by : at line 28 of function legend called by : legend("something")

There seems to be a problem in the building process of the atoms portal. There is no problem when building the package by hand and making an offLine install. S.

I built the package by hand and then installed it but the problem remains. I hope I did it the right way though: 1/ put the unzipped plotlib source folder inside SCI/contrib 2/ cd into SCI/contrib/plotlib 3/ exec('builder.sce') 4/ atomsInstall('plotlib') 5/ atomsLoad('plotlib') Then I tried one of the examples of the plotlib help (the one for whitebg) and got the _mainPlot error again.

At http://buyessays.cheap/write-my-essay-cheap/ we had an issue exactly in the building process of atoms. I just need time to recall what our solution was.
