Hi ! I am using Mathematica 5.2 under Linux. Last time I re-used some older notebooks that were written with version 5.0. I have problems with the graphics. If I do p1=Plot[Sin[x],{x,0,2*Pi}]; I can see the result. But if I try to use p1 in e.g. Show[p1,p2] I get an error. I only can use p1 when I used it with DisplayFunction->Identity above. That is very uncomfortable. I read the help but I guess it is either a problem with Unix/Linux or a simple configuration problem. The next problem is, that all plots are dropped to the end of the file and are not shown on the place the should. In longer calculation I lost almost the overview. Can I do something about this? Thank you!
