My original report was based on gnuplot, as used
to generate the plots in the Manual. There was
a period when the Manual figures, such as 15.7
were coming out without escape recognition. This has
since been fixed. Also, it looks like the bug tracker
ate the backslashes. I should have used verbatim.

So, time to close this report.

This works fine for me. The 'tex' interpreter is only available when using the gnuplot toolkit. Was that set on your system? Also, the demonstration code you had did not have the backslash '\' escape character necessary to trigger the interpreter.

Sample code that I used:

See Figure 15.7 in the Manual, or try:

t1=text(5.,180,'forall, exists, ni, cong, Delta');
text(5.,170, 'pi, theta, rho, sigma');
