matplotlib and matplotlibrc


I use matplotlib 0.87.3 on win32 with wxpython.

From the command line, the numeric package is set correctly : numpy (read from matplotlibrc) and all woks fine.

I try to use matplotlib from pyxpcom (the connector between xpcom and python in the mozilla world), it seems matplotlib doesn't read matplotlibrc since it looks for numeric package which is not installed.

I don't undestand, is there a reason the matplotlibrc file is not read, interpreted ?

thanks a lot,
