For which platforms is LabPlot available?
LabPlot is developed for Unix platforms and uses the Qt™ toolkit and KDE Frameworks™. Normally you can expect LabPlot to build and run on every platform KDE Frameworks™ supports. A recent list of supported platforms and tips for compiling and running LabPlot can be found on http://labplot.wiki.sourceforge.net/Download.
How do I export the active worksheet as image?
The standard way is to use → . All Qt™ supported image formats are allowed. Just select the desired format and the active worksheet is exported.
How do I use Greek letters for title, axes label, etc.?
Use π button to open character selector window or TEX to generate Greek letters and other symbols using LATEX.
I miss an important feature. What can I do?
Please take a look at the TODO file in the documentation of LabPlot. Here, all planned features are listed in more or less sorted order which I will implement in future releases of LabPlot. If you like to have additional features or like to have a listed feature soon, mail me your wishes and, if possible, send me example data or a short description of what you like to do. It is not unlikely that your feature will appear in the next stable release of LabPlot :-)
Many Analysis functions are disabled. What can I do?
It looks like your LabPlot package was compiled without GSL (GNU Scientific Library) support. LabPlot was designed to even work on systems that are missing most of the standard libraries. Many distributions are shipping LabPlot packages without this additional functionality. In this case some functions are not available. Fortunately some programs (like pstoedit or texvc) can be added without recompiling LabPlot. You can always check your system environment in the help menu of LabPlot.
The packages provided on the official download page are always built with the standard libraries (GSL, etc.). You should use them to have all the features.
I want to help. How can I contribute to LabPlot?
Yes, of course. There are a lot things to do. Even if you don't know anything about programming we always need people to find bugs, test things and make suggestions. Also the translation and documentation always needs a lot of work.
