yVal = {7, 1, 5, 4};

xVal = {1, 2, 10, 70};

ListPlot[yVal,
 Ticks -> {
   Thread[{Range[Length[xVal]], xVal}],
   Automatic
   }]

Hi,

I need to plot two a vector {y_1,...,y_n} against a vector {x_1,...,x_n} and I want to the latter to be distributed with equal distances between the elements. Mathematica automatically scales the x-axis so that it is linear with respect to the x-values, i.e. if x={1,2,10}, then the distance between the second and third element will be eight times longer than the distance between the second and first element. I would like the distances to be of equal length.

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Daniel
