IPE Drawing Tool is a free open source software for graphing. It follows friendly with TeX programming and writing, and that's when my question comes along.
I've been trying, for a few days now, to plot function (mostly trigonometric, polynomial and exponential simple functions) on IPE by trying to install ipelets, but I was completely unsuccessful. I found some of them, but couldn't install them. When I tried to copy the
.lua addons to the ipelets folder, I couldn't open the software anymore. Specifically I got interested by IpePlot, but I really couldn't install it.
So, how could I plot professional looking function graphics, since I can't do it with IPE drawing tool? Am I doing something wrong?
Here are a few more details on how I've installed IPE and IPEPlots ipelet. I'm on Windows 7 Professional right now.
I've download IPE software from here. Then I extracted its contents on a folder directly o C: main directory. Here are its contents:
After that, I've download the ipelet from this link. I've put the
plots.lua inside the already existing folder, like this:
And then, when I go to
bin folder and try to open the software, it doesn't work. That's the full problem.
