I am trying to use matplotlib on a server which I don't run without it
installed. I tried untarring it to a folder in the path of PYTHONPATH
and using it directly without any luck.
Has anyone successfully installed matplotlib and its dependencies under
a user account?

Sure, that's not particularly difficult. But untarring won't be
enough. You also have to build it. We'd need to know more about your
platform to help, but basically: install the dependencies and then run
> python setup.py install --prefix=~/mylocal
On ubuntu and similar, you can get the build dependencies by first doing
> sudo python setup.py build_dep python-matplotlib
