Dear all, matplotlib users and devs,
I have been trying the latest announced version of Matplotlib (1.1.0). The new feature that attracted me is the PySide support.
However, I tried to install it under Ubuntu 11.04, but I needed pyqt4 installed in order to install it from source. Is there a way to install it with only pyside installed?
Once installed, I could uninstall pyqt4, and run my python scripts, with replacing pyqt4 by pyside. However, I am not sure what the "ETS environment variable" is (yes, it s related to the enthought tool suite, but what if I do not want it - for now), and I had to set the QT_API variable on the command line call to python: setting it as a "normal" environment variable does not work. So, to be able to use "only" pyside, I need to do:
QT_API=pyside python myscript.py
Is that the right way to do so? Is there any way of setting the QT_API more "definitely", and not having to change the call to python?
So far, my program (I really have only one at the moment) seems to work well, using QtCore, QtGui and phonon, except for phonon, where it seems that "seeking" in a file does not really work under Ubuntu... if anyone has an idea (I know, not the right mailing list, but just in case).
At last, probably a question that will solve all the above ones: when is the new Matplotlib version going to be included in EPD? That's, by the way, mainly the reason why I consider using PySide instead of PyQt4.
Thanks for reading!
