I installed Octave on a F26 system and opened a fresh user account to
test the steps in your article. When I do, I get a completely black
plot window. I've tested this in a brand new F26 VM guest install as
well, same results.
It turns out this is a known problem with Octave on Wayland systems:
My only guess is that you are either:
(1) running an Xorg session instead of Wayland, or
(2) you set up graphics_toolkit() beforehand or in a startup file
I'll adapt the instructions to advise using graphics_toolkit("fltk")
which seems to work best and with no spew to the console.
Except... this makes all the screenshots inaccurate. And I found out
that the "fltk" toolkit is just ugly. Using "gnuplot" is beter.
Do you have time to redo the screenshots using the gnuplot toolkit?
