To run matplotlib from idle, you need to make the following changes to
your matplotlibrc file
backend : TkAgg
interactive : True
See http: //matplotlib.sourceforge.net/matplotlibrc for details on the
rc file and http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/interactive.html for an
explanation of what these settings mean.
