Dear all,

I successfully installed Python 3.2.3 + Numpy 1.6.2 + Matplotlib 1.2.x (Git version). I tried the following command sequence line by line:

huskier@SqueezeVM0:~/Programming/Python/Python-3.2.3$ python3.2
Python 3.2.3 (default, Jun 30 2012, 07:14:35) 
[GCC 4.4.5] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
>>> plt.plot(range(10), range(10))
[<matplotlib.lines.Line2D object at 0x3c6f1d0>]
>>> plt.show()

However, nothing happens when I typed plt.show(). There should be a figure window which I can get using python 2.6.

I do not know what's wrong with my installation. OR matplotlib cannot be used with python 3? Any ideas?

Best regards,


Most likely, you didn't have the Dec packages for any of the toolkits available. Check your build log.
