ImportError: No module named six

An important question that I should have asked before. Exactly where did
you get the installer from? That might help us figure out what happened
here.

From here: http://matplotlib.org/downloads.html

I installed six and all is well now, my program runs with Python 1.4.3
installed.

Many thanks for your help
Gary

As for a workaround, if you want to get savy with the command-line, you
could run "pip install six" on the command-line. That should install it for
you, and then you can try installing matplotlib through the executable.

I did as you suggest and got the "No module named matplot lib" message. I
installed version 1.4.3 and got the "no module named six" message. I then
deleted all the matplotlib files once again and installed version 1.3.1
and now
my matplotlib program runs. Is there something else could try?
