By default, Gnuplot's X11 terminal does not support UTF-8 characters when displaying text labels or setting plot titles.
#REDIRECT [[Gnuplot tips]]
To enable support for UTF-8, add the lines below to your {{Path|~/.Xdefaults}}.
<syntaxhighlight lang="text">
! gnuplot settings
gnuplot*font: mbfont:-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-*-*-100-100-*-*-iso10646-*
gnuplot*encoding: utf-8
To enable these settings, type the following command at the shell prompt.
<syntaxhighlight lang="text">
xrdb -merge .Xdefaults
To avoid having to type this command repeatedly, the command may be placed in your shell script resource file, {{Path|~/.profile}} for example.
