grepping matplotlib-py3k from github, configuring, compiling and installing with python3.2 under Ubuntu posed no problems. Firing up python and import matplotlib shows no errors in the first place. Importing pylab brings up errors in cbook.py, namely the call to os.path.walk() in line 1069 which is deprecated since python3.0.
Without a proper replacement for os.path.walk() FontList.cache can’t be generated. Is it just my fault at some point or is it still broken and needs fixing? If it needs fixing I will gladly look into it. What get’s me wondering is that someone managed to get a simple plot out of mpl on python3.
Please give me a hint, if I need to work on it.
