cannot install kubuntu 9.04 mpl 0.99.1.1, python 2.6

Jeff,
I had already had tk-dev installed:
$ sudo apt-get install tk-dev
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
tk-dev is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded

Please see my latest… This is amazingly difficult. Didn’t remember it being this hard when I did it on my Suse machine.

Kurt: It’s not finding tk.h, so you probably need to install the tk-dev package.

Apparently, I have two :slight_smile:

$ sudo find / -name “tk.h”

So where’s your tk.h file?

But you need /usr/include/tcl8.5/tk.h. Matplotlib is detecting a tk 8.5 installation, so it's looking for a tk 8.5 header.

OK, that got me a hair further :slight_smile: With your suggestion I got past that speed bump by:
sudo apt-get install tk8.5-dev tcl8.5-dev

Now the error is a little more sinister. I did a tiny bit of research and some posts says the error could be due to no installation of g++. but…

Kurt:

I don't think you should be building the macosx backend on linux. Try copying setup.cfg.template to setup.cfg, then edit that file and uncomment the line

#macosx = False

Then run setup.py build again.

You’re right, I had just tried something similar before I received your post:
I modified the setup.cfg with:
#gtk = False
#gtkagg = False
tkagg = True
wxagg = True
macosx = auto
qtagg = True

–> I’m not sure if the qtagg means anything, but since I’m using qt, I thought I’d throw it in there and see what happens.

Thanks for the help!

If someone wants to modify the install page with the following suggested deps.:
