I have compiled version 0.87.4 of matplotlib successfully but whenever I try to plot anything I get the following font error:
RuntimeError: Could not load facefile /System/Library/Fonts/LucidaGrande.dfont; Unknown_File_Format. I don't think there is a problem with the font file, I checked this with Font Book and everything is ok.
If I use axis('off') to turn off the axis, plots work fine but there is obviously something wrong and I can't quite work it out.
Can anyone help?
I compiled matplotlib with freetype2 from fink (2.1.3-22) after unsuccessfully trying to compile it with 2.2.
I am compiling matplotlib because I needed scipy, for which I couldn't find a binary that would work on my MacBook. That meant I had to compile my own numpy, which in turn broke matplotlib.
