Re: [Matplotlib-users] problem building matplotlib

Thanks Eric,

The gui dependencies are secondary, but I will look into that. Since
they are optional, the absence of them should not be the cause of the
failure, but it looks like it might be. Is that the case?

cheers
Dan

  Hello,
 
  I just tried to have just tried to build matplotlib, but it fails - and

  repo).
 
  Can anyone suggest how to resolve these issues?
 
 If you want to use wx, you need 2.8.  It looks like you don't have any 
 of the gui dependencies.   Since you you are running ubuntu, I suggest 
 you use the installation method recently described in this thread:

 Be careful to read down through the thread; the first try at 
 comprehensive instructions has an error.

I've just has a look at that and unfortunately it does not fix the
problem

Is there any other suggestion that might be worth a try?

I should point out that I already have numpy 1.4.1 installed and scipy
0.8.0 as dependencies for other packages.

thanks
Dan

 Looking again at the original build output, and at setup.py and 
 setupext.py, it appears that there is a bug in the latter.  If the wrong 
 version of wx is found, it should be disabling the attempt to build 
 wxagg, and reporting wxPython: no.
 
 We need to fix the bug, but the workaround for now is to use a setup.cfg 
 file with
 
 wxagg = False
