First of all, thanks for your help.
I made several mistakes, which I fixed: I installed matplotlib as root and from xterm. The installation process worked out fine,the output of
>python setup.py build
TKAgg requires TkInter
which is ok, I think. At least it doesn't say "require pygtkg" anymore. The
>sudo python setup.py install
ran without mistakes.
BUT: When I start python, and I want to import matplotlib.matlab, this happens:
Python 2.3.4 (#2, Nov 14 2004, 18:39:27)
[GCC 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1495)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import matplotlib.matlab
Could not load matplotlib icon: Couldn't recognize the image file format for file '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/share/matplotlib/matplotlib.svg'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/site-packages/matplotlib/matlab.py", line 163, in ?

from _gtkagg import agg_to_gtk_drawable
ImportError: No module named _gtkagg
I thought, everything ist ok, when the installation is completed successfully - obviously I am wrong. But what now? I am lost...
Thanks for your help

This is an annoying build issue that hopefully we'll resolve before
too long. I assume you are building from the Terminal shell is OSX.
You'll need build and run matplotlib from the X terminal
Hope this helps,
