Can not get animated matplotlib example to work

Hi,

I am trying to get the exaple from here:
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/animation/animate_decay_tk_blit.html

I copied it into a file and tried to execute it.
I get:

File "test.py", line 56, in <module>
    manager.window.after(100, run)
AttributeError: 'gtk.Window' object has no attribute 'after'

What is wrong? How can I correct that?

Thanks!
Nathan

Nathan: You're using the GTKAgg backend (the default), whereas the script expects the TkAgg backend. Either edit your matplotlibrc file to set TkAgg as your default backend, or run the script like this:

python animate_decay_tk_blit.py -dTkAgg

Hey,

Thanks, that works. Is it also possible to get it to work with the GTKAgg
backend?

Thanks!
Nathan

I found the examples for the other backends. Sorry for not looking better
before
