• Change the default terminal on windows

    From SyntaxErrorX00@21:1/5 to All on Wed Sep 25 09:22:17 2019
    Hello
    I am using gnuplot 5.2.7.

    gnuplot/wgnuplot use wxt as the default terminal. I want to change that to be 'qt' instead so every time I have to run "set term qt" so I am looking for a way to change it permanently. I tried everything I found on internet:
    * create GNUPLOT.INI and insert "set term qt",
    * Create an environment variable GNUPLOT pointing to that directory (My home directory, C:\Users\username).

    * Tried to change the file wgnuplot.ini in my home directory.
    * Tried to change the file wgnuplot in C:\Program Files\gnuplot\share\wgnuplt.ini

    But unfortuately that have no effect, every time I open gnuplot I get the default terminal wxt.

    Could you please tell me how can I change that?

    You have to place the gnuplot.ini (not wgnuplot.ini, thats just for
    the windows GUI) file in the $APPDATA directory, which usually is
    <your home directory>\appdata\roaming

    (For some unknown reason, the ~\appdata directory is hidden by
    default. First thing I change on every windows machine, right after
    disabling the system sounds.)

    Enter "set APPDATA" on the command line to check.

    Or you reinstall gnuplot and choose a different default terminal in
    the installer.

    Thank you for you reply,
    Sorry I forgot to mention that I tried also with what you suggested: to add gnuplot.ini to %appdata% folder but unfortunately it didn't work.
    So I will try the second suggestion.

    Hi,

    are you sure that it not works? It looks like gnuplot always tell you at
    the start "Terminal type is now 'windows'", but the terminal is set to
    what you give in the gnuplot.ini.

    Hello Jörg,
    Yes I am sure, I tried to create a the file %appdata%\gnuplot.ini with the following content:
    set terminal qt
    But that has no effect.
    I changed the content to
    Terminal=qt

    That has also no effect (I don't know if that syntax is valid or not but at least I tried it).

    My "gnuplot.in" is at "C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Roaming\gnuplot.ini"
    and all what I tell gnuplot is done.

    The simple syntax is:

    set term qt enhanced
    set samples 1000
    set grid
    set encoding utf8

    But I must do a "show terminal" to see what terminal is really set. At
    the start gnuplot always says the terminal is set to "windows".

    It is WIN 7 with gnuplot 5.2

    It is not clear what you are asking for. I assume you want to change the default terminal to something like qt. The simple solution is to re-install gnuplot and choose qt as the default terminal from the installer.
