I was wondering if I can get help on installation of pgfplots package on Mac OS Lion for LaTeX. I have downloaded a zip file from pgfplots download link but don't really know how to install it. I also checked the PDF file in the downloaded zip file; couldn't find a clear instruction on installing the package.

    For starters, you linked to pgf.sourceforge.net which is the homepage of PGF/TikZ. Maybe you were looking for pgfplots.sourceforge.net? Which TeX distribution are you using? Dec 17, 2012 at 1:18

    Assuming you are using the MacTeX distribution (which you should be unless you have very good reasons not to) pgfplots should already be installed. See How do I add a .sty file to my MacTeX/TeXShop installation.

    Ok. Then we'll close this question as too localised. Thanks for responding to the comment.

    You can draw distributions using tikz and there are many questions here explaining how to do that. See for example how to draw a chi-square distribution, a t-distribution, and a bivariate normal distribution. If you search the site you can find other examples.

    @NNik Sorry, I have no experience with gnuplot... I am sure someone is going to help you :) Good luck!
