Hello sorry to bother.

welcome here

Here's the problem: When I try to use plot in octave, I get the
following output:

Is it a specific plot command or just a generic

x=1:10; plot(x,x)


"warning: could not match any font: *-normal-normal-10
warning: ft_render: unable to load appropriate font
... [repeated roughly 100 times]
warning: could not match any font: *-normal-normal-10
warning: ft_render: unable to load appropriate font
panic: Aborted -- stopping myself...
attempting to save variables to 'octave-workspace'...
save to 'octave-workspace' complete
Aborted (core dumped)"

Then it quits octave and returns me back to the terminal.
I am using Cygwin on a Windows 8 system.

cygwin 32 or 64 bit ?

I am using octave 3.8.1.
It doesn't seem to be that I'm missing any critical files because I do

recognized fonts

Most other people who received the double warnings seemed to have
additional errors and path configuration errors that provided some

a lot of research already, I hope that this hasn't already been

Thank you
