I can only find gnuplot as source files for compilation, which I don't know how to do.  Is it available as a compiled binary?

Thanks.

I'm looking in VL5.9/packages, but can't find it.

If I type, as root, slapt-get --search gnuplot, I get get no response, just back to the prompt.

Oh, sorry, I didnt note you are using 5.9 instead 6.0
You could check if there is a SW12 package available.

You can also make a package request in the appropriate forum.

Thanks for that.

I've downloaded gnuplot-4.2.3-i486-1, and extracted all the files, which are now sitting in a folder on my desktop.  However, gslapt-get --search gnuplot still won't find it.

From Xfce, you have to right click on the downloaded package, and select "Install package" from the contextual menu.
Another alternative is to open a terminal, login as root, and run

Code:
installpkg /path/to/the/package/name_of_the_package
