Hi Georges,

What version of matplotlib are you trying to run? At the moment,
there isn't a "stable" release which is compatible with Python 3,
and you have to grab it from:

https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib-py3

Not all of the backends work in -py3, mostly because the underlying toolkits
have not been ported to Python 3. You can notes about the work in
progress, what's been completed, and what's left to do here:

https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib-py3/wiki

(Also, this is more of a matplotlib-users question, so I'm replying
to that list)

best,

···

That package, as the site states (though maybe not clearly enough),
has been built for Snow Leopard's system Python 2.6.2, so it cannot
work with Python3.1. If you call python2.6 or /usr/bin/python, you should
be able to use matplotlib. But if you need Python3.1, I am afraid you
are stuck for the moment, since the latest release does not support
Python3 yet. I think support is in the works, and may be partly available
in the development version, but unless you have considerable experience
in building your own installation, I would not recommend that road.

HTH,
