# Problem importing Octave Plot using TiKZ - pgfkeys Error on gpcolor

I am trying to include a set of Octave generated plots in a report, however I am constantly receiving the same error from pgf about it not recognizing \gpcolor

A MWE would be

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{pgf}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
%\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{gnuplot-lua-tikz}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[gnuplot]
\gpcolor{gp lt color border}
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}


While this doesn't do anything in particular, it still produces the same error which is:

Package pgfkeys Error: I do not know the key '/tikz/global gp lt color border


This is even happening with other documents which have worked fine previously.

I'm using Debian Jessie, with the texlive-full package installed, along with texstudio

• Could the answer here help: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/124850/… - perhaps your software is out of date? – bombcar Apr 11 '14 at 16:58
• I tried the solution mentioned, to install texlive-full, but it doesn't work. Also, this was working at least a month to 2 months ago. – DiJuMx Apr 11 '14 at 17:00
• That other example has \gpcolor{color=gp lt color border} - does that work? I can't run this example on my Mac. – bombcar Apr 11 '14 at 17:06
• Ah, that seems to have fixed it, I'm also having problems with \gprgb and \gpfontsize, but the rgb one looks like an xcolor issue ( needs to be \gpcolor{rgb color={0,0,0}} rather than \gpcolor{\gprgb{0}{0}{0}} ), I'll look into \gp fontsize myself – DiJuMx Apr 11 '14 at 17:46

In GNUPLOT 4.4 it uses \gpcolor{gp lt color border}, \gpcolor{\gprgbr{r}{g}{b}} and others
In GNUPLOT 4.6 is uses \gpcolor{color= gp lt color border}, \gpcolor{rgb color={r,g,b}} etc.
