Don't use the console version instead run your script through xstata perhaps?

If its on a remote machine and you're ssh-ing in then it might be
possible to set up X11 forwarding to run xstata, but how you do this
would be heavily dependent on the system you are connecting from (if
its another Linux machine and the server with stata has xorg installed
then using the '-X' flag to 'ssh -X [email protected]'
enables X11 forwarding)

Alternatively you might want to try exporting to Encapsulated
postscript from the console version and then converting eps to png
using an external system tool (if its installed) such as imagemagick
as described at
