congratulations on releasing 0.98.4. I especially like the new improved possibilities for legends.
I'm trying to understand how to change fonts. But I'm not very successful. I use python 2.5 on windows xp with the latest 0.98.4 of matplotlib.
I want to create plots that work well with a manuscript in LaTeX using the IEEE template. Using that template the regular text comes out in Nimbus Roman No 9L, but I can't get matplotlib to use that font.
Using the attached script (with default matplotlibrc) I end up with BitstreamVeraSerif-Roman in the resulting pdf. So it seems only Vera is recognized. In the attached file 'log.txt' is the output from running the script with verbose.level=debug.
From the log it seems the pdfcorefonts are not on the fontpath. But still Times New Roman and palatino both are available in the system font directory as ttf fonts.
Any ideas on how to fix this
