Hi all,

I have come across a fatal error in openfoam when I wanna use gnuplot!
I know it is the common problem among foamers, however, I have not reached my answer!
Do you have any idea for it?
Thanks in advance.

myfoam@DESKTOP-TK3D7CI:~/OpenFOAM$ ls
ff.dat  myfoam-v2112

        gnuplot home:
        faq, bugs, etc:   type "help FAQ"
        immediate help:   type "help"  (plot window: hit 'h')

Terminal type is now 'wxt'
gnuplot> plot "ff.dat"
20:24:19: Error: Unable to initialize GTK+, is DISPLAY set properly?
Failed to initialize wxWidgets.

Terminal type is now 'unknown'
         wxt init failure
