Your code isn't reproducible...(note the "legend ...." block -- that's
not code) and (if I had to guess) it looks like you are using
attach(). Don't do that...
What do you mean it doesn't work? You say something about plotting
lines, but your "working" code (the first block) doesn't do that...
If you want to use ggplot2, it's very easy to make this all work:
ggplot(d, aes(x = x, y = y, color = factor)) + geom_line()
And the documentation gives (many) examples on how to change the color
scale as desired.
