I use Eclipse SDK, Version: 3.7.0 with PyDev 101.

Furthermore I have installed
- numpy-1.6.1rc1-win32-superpack-python2.6.exe
- matplotlib-1.0.1.win32-py2.6.exe

as noted here: matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/installing.html

I have rebuild all the packages and looks the site-packages are listed.

(by the way as you see it is an Python version installed with ArcGIS )

If I test a script to check the installation like:

import numpy
arcpy.AddMessage("NUMPY Version " + numpy.__version__)

import matplotlib
arcpy.AddMessage("MATPLOTLIB Version " + matplotlib.__version__)

I get the following error:
NUMPY Version 1.6.1rc1
Traceback (most recent call last):
print "MATPLOTLIB Version " + matplotlib.__version__
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute '__version__'

Also the command
- import pylab as pl

import pylab as pl
from matplotlib.pylab import *
ImportError: No module named pylab

So even matplotlib is installed properly in the directory "site-packages" (see screenshot attached) it does not work in Eclipse.
Eclipse points properly as well (see 2nd screenshot attached). As you see I even added the directory matplotlib manually)

By the way if I let it run in iPython (same installation) it works perfect.

What still needs to be done to get matplotlib work in Eclipse?
