I'm looking for a software to create vector images of Graphs. below features are required:

  • Be able to draw special graphs like n-complete , K graphs etc.
  • Available for ubuntu

I want to generate ps-tricks code (if possible). there should be something like LaTeX-Draw specialized in graphs. is there?

You can use dot2tex to translate Graphviz files in PSTricks or PGF/TikZ commands. You can even write directly in the LaTeX source code with the dot2texi package, here's an example.

Anyway Graphviz itself is able to produce several formats (ps, svg, etc.).

All you have to do is learn the DOT language syntax (used by Graphviz), but there are plenty of examples around.

I'm not sure if this fits with you special needs, but maybe it's worth to make a try.

it looks to be useful. at least it's more easier than using pstricks. thanx :) –  sorush-r Sep 24 '10 at 10:51
