McCode mc/mxplot.pl fails on debian testing (and prob. newer) #558
The perl plotting tools have a problem on debian testting and newer preventing also mc/mxgui from starting. On these systems a pgplot replacement based on giza is preferred as libpgplot-perl depends on libcpgplot0 and libpgplot0 (which are giza-based).
This manifests itself by mcplot.pl and mcgui.pl crashing with error messages similar to:
Alternatively it is possible to directly use the giza-libraries by setting the environment variable PGPLOT_DEV
This has drawbacks: 1. The 2D-plots are not nice. 2. The plot windows do not behave nicely.
