A word of warning. These quick and dirty packages and they don't do
all the right things (like gpg authentication) and aren't "debian
compliant" (sorry too little time). However, I have used them on a
number of ubuntu hoary systems (including a custom livecd with all the
scientific python goodies) and haven't had any trouble.
Included below is my sources.list (universe + multiverse + my repo).
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-matplotlib-jdh
I have other packages in there too: scipy CVS (scipy-jdh), ipython CVS
(ipython-jdh) and so on.
