Do you have wxpython installed?
The matplotlib backends are what display windows with plots on your
screen or know how to write various file formats. In order to display a
plot window, you will need to install the Python bindings for at least
one of the supported GUI frameworks, (Gtk+, Qt, Tk, wxPython, or Fltk)
and tell matplotlib which one to use. See here:
