Hello, I'm pretty new for Galaxy. I am running a local Galaxy server on Mac. I tried to draw a boxplot from summary statistics created from groomed fastq data. Then I got error message as follows: An error occurred running this job: gnuplot> set term png size 2048,768 ^ line 0: unknown or ambiguous terminal type; type just 'set terminal' for a list line 0: warning: Too many axis ticks requested (>1e+02) Error running gnuplot. I believe gnuplot was appropriately installed using MacPorts (confrimed it starts when I type "gnuplot" on terminal). I also installed libpng by Macports and now "png" is listed when I type "set terminal" in gnuplot for a list. How can I help it??? Thank you very much. Hiroki

The job is likely too large. Using charts as suggested in the original reply is a great alternative, as is using FastQC. Best, Jen, Galaxy team

Hi Hiroki,

This is not a direct response to your question, but alternatively you may generate box plots using the Charts visualization plugin in combination with the 'charts' tool from the Galaxy Toolshed. More information on this is available at

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this.

Thanks, Sam
