My professor has asked me to draw a certain diagram for a poster which he wants to present at a conference. Which program on Ubuntu gets this done?

My image/drawing consists of the following:

  1. x, y, and z axes
  2. Particles. These are to be represented as colored balls
  3. The graph of a bell curve in 3D

The other question asks for applications for windows. This question should not be closed as a duplicate. – Nifle Oct 25 '11 at 9:55

I think gnuplot may suit your purposes. Since gnuplot has no gui the learning curve can be fairly steep but this link might get you started.
