Hi John,
	Where did you install gnuplot (the program, not the module)?  The  
execution path (os.environ['PATH']) is considerably different in  
standalone Python than in Chimera's IDLE shell.  I suspect that the  
gnuplot executable is not on IDLE's PATH (the Gnuplot module by  
default tries to run gnuplot simply as 'gnuplot').  If the problem is  
with PATH, your options include modifying os.environ['PATH'] before  
importing Gnuplot, or changing the Gnuplot module's options like so:

         import Gnuplot
         Gnuplot.GnuplotOpts.gnuplot_command = '/bin/mygnuplot'
