XGRAPH in Ubuntu 20.04

xgraph - Standalone application in Ubuntu 20.04

There are two options to use either 32 bit or 64 bit OS, to find what OS instruction set your OS is Using, use the following command 

$] uname -a 
Linux pradeepkumar-Latitude-3410 5.8.0-36-generic #40~20.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jan 6 10:15:55 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

In the above output x86_64 indicates its 64 bit, else it may show i686 which indicates its a 32 bit OS

You can watch the complete instruction here on how to do?

$] gedit ~/.bashrc
include the following line in the .bashrc file (Copy the PAT H of xgraph and paste it in .bashrc)

    alias xgraph=/home/pradeepkumar/XGraph4.38_linux64/bin/xgraph

After the above change is made, restart the computer and its set. 
$] xgraph 
A window will be popping up as shown below
