1.3 + xkcd + latex

This example shows the error on my platform - the xlabel is not rendered with

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
plt.xkcd()

fig = fig = plt.figure()
ax = fig.add_subplot(111)
plt.plot (np.arange (10), 2*np.arange(10))
ax.set_xlabel ('$E_{s}/N_{0}$')
plt.show()

And without plt.xkcd() the tex is rendered correctly

This is really puzzling. What version of matplotlib are you running, what platform, and what version of Python? Your example works just fine for me.

For what it is worth I see behaviour identical to Neal. I’m using a development version of matplotlib (v1.4.x, sorry I don’t know the hash of the installed version) on 64-bit Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) and Python 2.7.3. That probably doesn’t help much, except to show that this is not specific to just Neal!
