Partial fix: If I add this line to ~/.sage/init.sage: sage.misc.viewer.BROWSER='xv'

It gets rid of firefox, but it uses the minimally capable xv.

I have tried: sage.misc.viewer.PNG_VIEWER='xv' but then firefox is brought up.

If there is a need for a BROWSER setting then clearly xv will not do the trick.

I have just installed sage 4.8. On my system I have gnuplot, gnuplotpy, surf,matplotlib, and perhaps some others. I want plot() in sage to default to ANY of these instead of bringing up firefox to plot a png.

I can get gnuplot if I use a maxima command. Is there any way to get sage to default to some other plot?
