After upgrading my system to ubuntu 14.04 i am not able to open graphs generated by graphviz using xdot. Prior to that i was using ubuntu 12.04 and there was no problem of such sort observed. below is the sample error trace:

File "/usr/bin/xdot", line 4, in xdot.main() File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/xdot.py", line 1947, in main win.open_file(args[0])
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/xdot.py", line 1881, in open_file self.set_dotcode(fp.read(), filename)

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/xdot.py", line 494, in read_number return int(self.read_code())
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: '206.05'

Can somebody help me to resolve this issue?
