figure save problem

Hi All,

I am having a problem saving figures produced with matplotlib. Right now, I am running a freshly built

matplotlib-0.99.1.2 (unzipped, the directory reads 0.99.1.1?) built on
python-2.6
numpy-1.3.0
scipy-0.7.1
ipython-0.10

All on an OSX 10.5 intel.

When I try to save a figure, in the "Save the figure" dialogue box, the "Save As:" window does not recognize any keyboard entries. If I copy and paste, that works (at first). But I remembered reading about this problem people were having with Snow Leopard.

Originally, copy/pasting worked to "workaround" this problem, but I find that after trying a few other things, I can no longer even paste anything into the "Save As:" Box. Further, when I click the "Save" or "Cancel" buttons, they flash like normal, however the dialogue box does not go away, the file is not saved, and I can't escape! Ahhhhhh! I can still navigate through my folders with the mouse in the dialogue box, but clearly something is not right.

Last week, I had Python 2.5, matplotlib 0.98.6 and everything worked just fine.

I have the problem whether running through python or ipython.asdfasdf

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks,

Andre

I have the same problem with nearly identical setup:
OS X 10.5.8 - intel
matplotlib 99.1.1
python 2.6.1
ipython 0.9.1
numpy-1.3.0

Hi All,

An update:

I have likely figured out the problem. When I did a fresh install of Python-2.6 on my mac, I simply used

./configure

and reading more about installing on the mac, I believe I should have used

./configure --enable-framework

to support all the GUI stuff. Well, I tried this, but got the warning,

Failed to find the necessary bits to build these modules:
_bsddb gdbm linuxaudiodev
ossaudiodev readline spwd
sunaudiodev

so, instead of trying to track down the solution to this problem (I am still new at learning how to properly install software from binaries) I just grabbed the latest python-2.6 .dmg file for mac, and installed with that.

Now, everything seems to work fine. :slight_smile:

Cheers,

Andre
