I have student getting “gks not in proper state” when trying to plot under Windows 10 using 1.9-beta-3 and a fresh Julia install with only the latest Plots.jl, IJulia, and GR explicitly added. Does anyone have suggestions for how to fix this? It appears to be a GR issue, as I couldn’t make a plot directly with GR (GR loads fine, but the error appears when calling
plot(1:100, 1:100)), but could add PlotlyJS as a Plots.jl backend and make a plot just fine.
Looking online it seems this issue has cropped up from time to time in GR.jl, and was last handled via a fix for Windows 11 in October, but I did confirm the student is on the latest release.
