I have been trying to get correct 'epsilon' symbol for labeling the axes in the gnuplots. From my understanding TeXdistinguishes between two types of epsilon symbols: one is ε (varepsilon) and the other one is ϵ (epsilon). The latter one seems unavailable in gnuplot or I am not able to find a correct way out. And I want to use this one in my labels. Do I have to change to a particular font type where this is available? I tried some of the available font types but nothing worked.

I have used ϵ extensively in my document and suddenly I am a bit reluctant to use replace all in the TeX just for a single plot . Anyhow, I am also curious to know whether or not gnuplot got 'em both. Thanx in advance.

    You just have to use a font which has your required variant of epsilon. Anyway, this question is not about TeX, so voting to close as off-topic. – Henri Menke Mar 8 '18 at 6:27

    @HenriMenke Voting off-topic does not answer the question. – user31694 Mar 8 '18 at 6:30
  • Did you read sourceforge.net/p/gnuplot/discussion/5925/thread/bc8a65fe for a similar question about \phi, \varphi? How do you produce your epsilons at the moment? Can you add more details? Anyway, I believe Henri Menke is right. This is (very likely) not a TeX question, it's a gnuplot question and you will get better answers at a gnuplot-specific site. (The question might be on topic here if you use a gnuplot to export TeX/TikZ code.) ... – moewe Mar 8 '18 at 8:42
  • ... This site is about TeX, and if the only link between your question and TeX is that you want to embed the plot in your TeX document that is a weak link indeed. Plus saying "Voting off-topic does not answer the question." is besides the point. If you asked a question about car mechanics on maths.stackexchange and somebody were to comment that they think the question is off topic replying with "Voting off-topic does not answer the question." is not really helping. – moewe Mar 8 '18 at 8:43
