I am assuming you have the data and plotting is the requirement,
Check references at Data visualization tools for Linux
Most of these should be available on Ubuntu

You can also try the Microsoft Excel Charts technique with
OpenOffice Spreadsheet Charts

It depends on what type of diagram you want to create. I like gnuplot for this sort of tasks.
