Dear Dr. Moore,
I figured out how to make it work. User needs to create a file called "maximainit.mac” under the directory: “~/.maxima/“. They need to add the following to the "maximainit.mac” file:
gnuplot_command:"gnuplot”$
set_plot_option([gnuplot_term, x11])$
Alternatively they can use the following commands:
echo 'gnuplot_command:"gnuplot"$' >> ~/.maxima/maximainit.mac
echo 'set_plot_option([gnuplot_term, aqua])$' >> ~/.maxima/maximainit.mac
Best,
Luis Gutierrez

aqua in the last command should be x11
