installation fails on Ibex (ubunt 8.10)

Hi!

A few days ago I switched to ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid ibex) and tried to install matplotlib (the current version and 0.98.1 as well - both attempts failed)[I thought I would have installed all requirement :-/].

By the way I didn't have any problems with the previous ubuntu...

I tried the: python setup.py build and received:

flo@...2374...:~/Desktop/matplotlib-0.98.1$ sudo python setup.py build

Maybe one of you might have an idea what's missing?

I ran into exactly the same thing last night after doing an upgrade from hardy to intrepid, and I tracked it down this morning. You need to install the python-gtk2-dev package.

I have committed a change to svn that provides more informative output from mpl's setup when this error occurs.
