Can you see if you can run the plotserver directly?
    python plotserver.py

If one is not running then that p.plot command tries to start one up
using the process module.  But apparently that doesn't work right on
MacOS, so maybe it's got problems on linux too.

If you start the plotserver up by itself first there should be a
little (non-plot) window that pops up for it.  Once it's up you can
try the lines you typed in above again (try that from a clean python
session just to be sure).
