Libertine font in Matplotlib?

Hi all;

I'm using the excellent font Linux Libertine for writing my thesis, in
which I do my plotting in matplotlib. I would really love to be ablu to
have consistent fonts in both text and graphs - is this possible? I know
it can be loaded by \usepackage{libertine}.

Best;

Emil

For ordinary text objects, one way is to set the font.family rcParam to the
font name. You could do this either in a matplotlibrc file in an appropriate
location or in your code dynamically [1]. If you'll be using mathtext, also
see the "Fonts" section and "Custom fonts" subsection at [2]; for LaTeX, [3].

Sorry, perhaps I should have specified;

I'm using usetex, and Libertine is not among the supported fonts. In the
example RC file, it said that if any font was wanted, that could be
loaded with a \usepackage command, one should request it on the mailing
list.

You might be able to do this (before importing pyplot or pylab):

matplotlib.rcParams['text.usetex'] = True
matplotlib.rcParams['text.latex.preamble'] = '\usepackage{libertine}'

and optionally (if you have xpdf or poppler installed):

matplotlib.rcParams['ps.usedistiller'] = 'xpdf'

Good luck,
Jeff
