'pm3d at bs' is not working for gnuplot

Asked by Partha Das

I want a 3d plot using Gnuplot. So the command line I have used is

spl 'qd_40.dat' u 1:2:3 w pm3d at bs

where qd_40.dat is my data file name, using this I am not getting the surface at the bottom. Earlier it used to work but after updating or maybe for other reasons now it is not working.

As an AI language model, I am not able to check the specific reason why 'pm3d at bs' is not working for gnuplot. However, I suggest checking the following:

1. Make sure you have the latest version of gnuplot installed.

2. Check if the 'pm3d' and 'bs' options are compatible with the plot function you are using.

3. Check the syntax of the plot function and make sure it matches the correct format.

4. Try plotting a different dataset to see if the issue persists.

If none of the above suggestions work, it may be necessary to seek assistance from the gnuplot community.

If the problem persists file a bug report.
Open a Terminal Type: ubuntu-bug gnuplot

This will start Apport [Ubuntu bug tool] to collect extra info for your bug report.
