Dear Thomas,

sorry for the last slapdashed E-Mail.

I am using Python-Version 2.6.2 . This version is necessary, because I work additional with the finite element simulation program ABAQUSTM.

The examples I wanted to test are from the matplot website.

Installed packages :

MatPlot: matplotlib-1.4.3

Numpy 1.6.2

PIL 1.1.7

Dateutil 1.4.1

Six 1.9.0

Pyparsing 2.0.3

I hope this will help to help me.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/ kind regards

If you subscribe to the user list you will be able to post with out moderation.

Can you point us to which example you are running? From what you have sent is is very hard to sort out what is going wrong as we have to guess what you are doing.
