terminal=screen stands for windows and x11 terminals. I have not the wxt
terminal available in my current gnuplot installation. I'm not sure if
this will work, but try
draw2d(user_preamble="set terminal wxt",explicit(x^2,x,-1,1));
I have added the user_preamble option for gnuplot 'connaisseurs'. I'll
commit a new version of the draw package in the next hours; in this
version, you can give user_preamble a list of strings, so that you can
add several lines of code in the preamble, before executing the plot

The answer in the next post.
Thanks for your kind words, Kostas.
