Okay, I tried the .zip installer and get the following error when trying to import:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pylab.py", line 1, in <module>
from matplotlib.pylab import *
File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib/pylab.py", line 220, in <module>
new_figure_manager, draw_if_interactive, show = pylab_setup()
File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib/backends/__init__.py", line 23, in pylab_setup
File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib/backends/backend_wxagg.py", line 19, in <module>
ImportError: No module named wx
Seems to me that I need to either change some setting on the backend that is being used, or I need some additional package to make the install work. Can some one point me in the right direction here?
Oh, and I tried downloading the .egg file to install, but for some reason my Mac wants to open the file with Excel, which is obviously wrong. How exactly do you use a .egg file as a binary installer?
