I just downloaded 0.99.1 and ran into some problems using it in Sage. Basically, in the tar.gz file, there was a setup.cfg file, which had the following:
Note that some options are already uncommented, forcing a build of tkagg, wxagg, and macosx backends, and forcing the default backend to be tkagg. This is in direct contradiction to the text just above these commands, which say the default is an "auto" option.
# You can uncomment any the following lines if you know you do
# not want to use the GUI toolkit. Acceptible values are:
# True: build the extension. Exits with a warning if the
# required dependencies are not available
# False: do not build the extension
# auto: build if the required dependencies are available,
# otherwise skip silently. This is the default
#gtk = False
#gtkagg = False
tkagg = True
wxagg = True
macosx = True
# User-configurable options
# Default backend, one of: Agg, Cairo, CocoaAgg, GTK, GTKAgg, GTKCairo,
# FltkAgg, MacOSX, Pdf, Ps, QtAgg, Qt4Agg, SVG, TkAgg, WX, WXAgg.
# The Agg, Ps, Pdf and SVG backends do not require external
# dependencies. Do not choose GTK, GTKAgg, GTKCairo, MacOSX, TkAgg or WXAgg
# if you have disabled the relevent extension modules. Agg will be used
# by default.
backend = TkAgg
Should I just delete the setup.cfg file? It looks like it shouldn't be in the release, since there is a template file there.
