GTKAgg backend problem

Hey,

I recently installed matplotlib "1.1.0svn" upgrading from 0.99.x shipped
with ubuntu. I have the problem that the GTK backend does not work
properly. Running similar to:
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/user_interfaces/embedding_in_gtk.html
throws the error: ImportError: No module named _backend_gdk
Is this a problem with the version or my installation and how would I
fix it (or do I need to downgrade again!?).

Regards

Sebastian Berg

Can you provide the output of a clean build?

Go to the source directory, remove the "build" dir, and run "python setup.py install &> log" and send us the file "log". It's possible you do not have the development files for gtk installed so the extension modules didn't get built.

Sorry, I mean of course, that the example already fails for me with this
error...
