Graphics terminal for mac commands

Sep 20, 2012 - For most people, the Mac's OS X is all about the graphical user interface. Then just type airport -s in the Terminal's command line to get the. The Terminal application (/Applications/Utilities) is Mac OS X's graphical terminal emulator. Inside the Terminal, Unix users will find a familiar command-line.

At home and in my previous universities, I have or had access to Linux-based computers and became accustomed to using Gnuplot for plotting. At my current position, I am supplied with a company Mac. I have downloadedb and installed Gnuplot from Sourceforge and was able to run it. However, typing set term png I was greeted by unknown or ambiguous terminal type — the terminal that is part of the standard Linux installation is apparantly not present on Mac. Searching turned up, which suggested reinstalling and making sure libpng is installed. But, it mentions libpng should be installed by default in OS X 10.6, and I have 10.13. I also ran across to install Aquaterm.

I did, complete with a reinstall of Gnuplot but I still cannot access a png terminal. How can I install a png terminal for use with Gnuplot for the next time I need to prepare graphs?

Click to expand.(Thanks to user Grama for the following tutorial!) When done with everything above, edit the Info.plist at AppleIntelHD3000Graphics.kext/C. Have to add after VRAMOverrride the VRAMSize key, it will be like this: VRAMOverride 0 VRAMSize 1024 Add these last two lines (VRAMSize integer value should match with the value you picked to edit the first kext, save it and patch and fix the extensions with Kext Utility and you are good to go! Thanks very much for this great thread. I was wondering about this, as I've just purchased my MacBook Pro 13' early 2011 and upgraded it to Yosemite. This evening I've tested the above terminal command for 512MB 1024MB on Yosemite 10.10.0. Graphics were already running at 512MB VRAM due to the MacBook having 16GB RAM.

The initial result following restart: Boot was very slow, and upon login VRAM showed as 3MB. Terrible graphical performance. Next step was to recover my backup.kext and restart; 3MB issue persisted following restart. Then, downloaded and ran the following utility to repair kexts: This restored my original 512MB VRAM configuration.

Next and original step was to get to 1024MB My process on Yosemite to get 1024MB: 1) Run the original terminal command in this thread for 512MB 1024MB (and assuming you can replace this with the upgrade of your choice) 2) Run the above-linked utility in this post directly afterwards 3) Restart 4) Enjoy Graphics now test successfully at 1024MB VRAM. Whether it will survive a software update - I'm not sure, but easy enough to repeat. Thanks very much for this great thread.

Graphic Design For Mac

This evening I've tested the above terminal command for 512MB 1024MB on Yosemite 10.10.0. Graphics were already running at 512MB VRAM due to the MacBook having 16GB RAM.

Does this work with Yosemite and NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 512 MB Hello there, I was using Mavericks and I'm sure my dedicated VRAM had gone upto 1024MB, this was great! I use my machine for 3d rendering, not complicated stuff, mainly building stills. I then upgraded to Yosemite (which I'm not sure about, as i can't use my Drawing software now!!) but the graphics now says NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 512 MB, does this hack work?

Someone please help! Don't want to f things up! My machine is a mid 2012 MBP 8 gb etc etc. The party is on again! After some research I figure out how to make this tweak really works, you have to edit the Info.plist at AppleIntelHD3000Graphics.kext/C.

Have to add after VRAMOverrride the VRAMSize key, it will be like this: VRAMOverride 0 VRAMSize 1024 Add these last two lines (VRAMSize integer value should match with the value you picked to edit the first kext, save it and patch and fix the extensions with Kext Utility and you are good to go! After several tests and benchmark I realize that 1024 vram size is the best. More then that your gpu don't use, believe me, I tried!

The proof screenshot. Click to expand.I did some benchmarks, the system version are not equals cause first benchmarks with 512mb vram was made with yosemite 10.10.1 and now 10.10.2. Without the Info.plist change it was all equals the 512mb benchmark, but now it changed.

With more then 1024mb vram the benchmark don't get better results. I used the unigine heaven benchmark 4.0 ( ) it's free, if some other members could do it and post the results so we can see in different machines the real changes would be nice!

I did all benchmarks in the same condition, after a fresh restart and with the same apps open. See the screenshot.
