trying to get gnuplot to run, but it seems i'm missing a library "libpng.so.2 i tried symlink to libqte.so.2.3.2, but no luck! Any pointers

Do you have any libpng* libs in /usr/lib ?
You could symlink it to libpng12.so.x (something like that), or to libpng.so.3 if you have that.
I think that libpng is built into one of the base libs but I don't know which (check the exact name which it was looking for - was it libpng.so.2 or libpng.so, make sure your symlink is to the correct file). Search might find it, otherwise libpng is doubtless available on killefiz.de.

found libpng.so.2 in /home/root/usr/lib. i symlinked it to /usr/lib , but still no luck

/home/root/usr/lib is a funny place to find a lib.
What exactly does the error message say?
Are you sure the symlink worked? Did you:
# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s /home/root/usr/lib/libpng.so.2 .
Or something like that?

Yeah symlink is there, created just as you've shown. I agree an odd place to have lib.

Did you install libpng? I can't think of any other reason for it to be there.
Check the filesize (that it isn't 0 bytes), permissions (don't know whether they matter to tell the truth).

I just compiled gnuplot 4.0 and tested it with Cacko/Qt 1.21 with X/qt. Perhaps it will help.
