Install problem on Leopard

Hi Folks,

I'm having some trouble installing Matplotlib on a Macbook pro running Leopard.

I installed macpython 2.5.2, and I have numpy and scipy installed from
source for the 2.5.2 installation.

Compiling Matplotlib from source, or easy_installing the egg
(matplotlib-0.91.2-py2.5-macosx-10.3-fat.egg) both fail with the same
error:

···

From the egg:

Has anyone else hit up against this before. Do I need to update
libJPEG, or modify setup.py?

Cheers,

hmm -- odd, I wouldn't think the egg should be linked against what looks like a macports libJPEG -- are you sure it isn't trying to build the egg when you easy_install?

It's trying to link against a macports libJPEG. However, macports doesn't build universal binaries, and the MacPython tries to build them, and hence the problem.

I'd try to find another libJPEG -- The UnixImageIO Frameworks form KyngChaos are a good choice, though I don't know off the top of my head how to get MPL to find them.

I agree you are not using a universal build of python to compile matplotlib. You cannot pass in the “-arch i386 -arch ppc” flags. Only pass the architecture of your computer.

Actually, I think the OP IS using a universal python, thus both flags -- he isn't manually passing in any flags at all. The problem is that it's trying to link in a jpeg lib that isn't Universal.

Is there a Universal Binary egg that will work with MacPython 2.5?

Note to OP -- maybe you'd have better luck with Apple's Python 2.5 -- it seems that that's what more people are using with Leopard.

Hi. I'm making scientific graphs again, so i just got back on this mailing list after a two year hiatus.

I am using:
matplotlib-0.90.0-py2.5-macosx-10.4-fat.egg

Here is a simple program:

#!/usr/bin/python

broken_log_demo.png

broken_log_demo.pdf (43.9 KB)

···

#
# Do our plots with matplotlib

import matplotlib
matplotlib.use('Agg')
from pylab import *

fig = figure(num=1,figsize=(6.5,4))
ax = fig.add_axes([.15,.3,.8,.65])
ax.set_title("Why is the Y axes upside down?")
ax.set_yscale('log')
ax.set_ylabel('Queries per second')

ax.bar(1,1000,.5,color='r')
ax.bar(2,5000,.5,color='b')
ax.bar(3,55000,.5,color='g')

fig.savefig("broken_log_demo.png")

Here is the plot with a PNG:

Looking back over the easy_install output it looks as if it does
download another tarball and try to build it. I read another thread
where this was happening to someone else.

I'll look at other libJPEGs - if that doesn't make it fly I might need
to take your other advice and nuke macpython. I'm a little hesitant
about over-writing the system installed numpy though.

like a macports libJPEG -- are you sure it isn't trying to build the
egg when you easy_install?

I vaguely recall a bug whereby mathtext on PDF was upside down (because the direction of the y-axis was not being inverted)... but I can't find the bug report.

It does seem to work in 0.90.1 and 0.91.2 (on Linux at least). Are you able to upgrade?

Cheers,
Mike

Well, that looks good.

But here is the plot when I change the type to PDF:

Notice the the axes are reversed.

What did you try to install? was it this:

matplotlib-0.91.2-py2.5-macosx-10.3-fat.egg

which I think should work, so if it doesn't, maybe we can figure out why not. It worked for me with MacPython2.5 on OS-X 10.4

Charlie, am I right that that should work?

I agree. MacPython is a good way to go, and we should have a binary for it, so maybe we can solve this. I don't have Leopard, so I'm not sure I can help much though.

Hm.

On my Linux box, Well, easy_install should upgrade me to 91.2, but won't build because ft2build.h is missing...? Apparently that's part of freetype v2, which I have installed...

On my Mac, easy_install says that matplotlib 0.87.7 is the active version and the best version.

I guess I can't easy install...

Hi. I've seen this problem before.

I think that you need to install freetype developer. The easiest way to install this is with macports and then type "port install freetype"

I'm happy to report that the egg install is now working. Still not
able to get the source to compile but I can live with that.

The problem appears to be the fink versions of libJPEG and libTIFF.
When I removed /sw/libJPEG, the installation crashed with a similar
error on libTIFF. When I removed /sw/libTIFF (fink remove libTIFF)
the egg install (sudo easy_install
matplotlib-0.91.2-py2.5-macosx-10.3-fat.egg) worked.

The last thing I had to do was change the ownership and permissions of
my ~/ .matplotlib from root to me, and simple plot commands are now
working.

Now, some people may need their fink /sw versions of libJPEG and
libTIFF - are there commands that you can pass to easy_install to
instruct it to link against the default installed libJPEG and
libTIFFs?

Cheers,

Andrew

Ah, if you are using /sw/, then you are using fink.
I pretty much gave up on fink a while ago and now use macports; if I can't install with macports, I install with source.
The reason that I gave up with fink is that it's largely a Linux-heritage thing, while macports is a BSD-heritage thing. MacOS is FreeBSD, not Linux.

YMMV

Thanks. First, a note:

There is confusion here. If I have it right, the OP is trying to install the BINARY egg that is up on sourceforge into the MacPython/Python.org Python2.5 running on OS-X 10.5. This should work. However:

Processing matplotlib-0.91.2-py2.5-macosx-10.3-fat.egg

...

Installed /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib-0.91.2-py2.5-macosx-10.3-fat.egg

So this looks like it has installed the binary egg.

Processing dependencies for matplotlib==0.91.2
Searching for matplotlib==0.91.2

But now it has determined that it has mpl 0.91.2 as a dependency, which is just plain odd -- I really don't get setuptools!

Processing matplotlib-0.91.2.tar.gz

so it has downloaded the tarball, and is trying to build it.

              wxPython: no
                        * wxPython not found

By the way I thought wxPython was only a run-time dependency now?

In file included from /usr/X11/include/freetype2/freetype/freetype.h:41,

some freetype warnings -- should it work with Apple-supplied freetype? it didn't used to , but it looks like these are only warnings now.

ld: in /sw/lib/libJPEG.dylib, file is not of required architecture for
architecture ppc

Now we've got a problem with a fink (or is it darwinports?) libJPEG, 'cause it's not Universal -- but why is it finding that libjpeg?

So:

1) Have you tried aborting when it starts downloading? Maybe the binary is installed?

2) Why is it trying to download and build from source? Does anyone get setuptools enough to know?

3) Maybe we should just distribute a binary *.mpkg instead. I've seen talk of a way to install a single binary that could work with either Apple's or MacPython's 2.5 -- I think it involved a symlink to a shared place to put packages -- anyone know if that actually works?

  1. Maybe we should just distribute a binary *.mpkg instead. I’ve seen

Apple’s or MacPython’s 2.5 – I think it involved a symlink to a shared

place to put packages – anyone know if that actually works?

I agree on the mpkg, but the last few times I have tried bdist_mpkg it has died miserably on mpl.

Me neither - but I just went with it.

It installed ok without WX, though i've since reinstalled with WX.

it didn't used to , but it looks like these are only warnings now.

I've not yet tried to do anything clever with Tex or fonts, but it
seems to be working linked against the Apple supplied freetype.

'cause it's not Universal -- but why is it finding that libjpeg?

Yes, the issue was with the fink libraries. Not sure why it was
picking those up first - might be the way my path is set up. It's
working now though - removing the fink libraries worked well enough.

3) Maybe we should just distribute a binary *.mpkg instead. I've seen

Sounds like a plan. Now that i have the use of this Mac I want to get
my research supervisor to install the whole kit of software that I
use, and the process so far has been moderately more trying than it
should be.

To summarize where we are at with OS-X installer:

The binary egg that Charlie built is supposed to work with Python 2.5, either Apple or python.org version on OS-X 10.5, and pythonorg version on OS-X 10.3.9 and 10.4.*

However, for some odd reason none of us understand, under some circumstances, easy-install tries to build from source anyway.

We're not distributing it as a *.mpgk, 'cause bdist_mpgk doesn't work right the last time it was tried.

It would be great if someone could work out one or both of these issues, but it looks like none of us has the energy and/or time at the moment.

On the bright side, it looks like building from source is getting easier, with only libpng being a dependency not supplied by Apple (at least on 10.5). Which is odd -- libpng is really common!

Hi,

either Apple or python.org version on OS-X 10.5, and pythonorg version

[snip]

I haven't really been following this thread too closely, but I read through it and saw that no body made mention of the "superpack"?

http://trichech.us/?p=5

For a long while now, I've been using python2.4 through macports and installing ipython/numpy/scipy/matplotlib from SVN, but I wanted to just try to use Leopard's Python (quickly ;-).

Instead of installing everything from source, I took a stab at d/ling the superpack and it all worked out pretty well for me. The only thing I had to do was to install freetype2 from source (simple ./configure, make, sudo make install) and everything seems to be working. Once I had that in there, I could use matplotlib with the WXAgg backend and it required no additional tweaking.

You can give that a go and see if it works.

If the numpy/scipy versions fall sufficiently out of data w/o a re-release of the superpack, I reckon you can install those from SVN (and remove the installed eggs) and things should work out fine.
