Hi Jaime, I thought that was odd too but I had installed the latest
maxima-doc which is supposed to be 5.11.0-1 also. After receiving your
reply I looked at all maxima related packages and saw that maxima-emacs
maxima-src maxima-test wxmaxima xmaxim had not yet been updated. After
installing the latest of those plotdf worked just fine.
Thanks for the help. Bob
