The scheme illustrated below actually does work.

If you would like up-to-date versions of both numpy and matplotlib, then
you can either find and install the *dev packages individually, or do
something like this:
sudo apt-get build-dep python-matplotlib
sudo apt-get remove python
No, that is probably supposed to be
sudo apt-get remove numpy
Now untar your numpy, go in, build and install:
sudo setup.py install
And last, do the same for matplotlib, preferably with a checkout from
svn. Some bugs have been fixed since the last release.
Before all of this, you might do well to uninstall whatever versions or
parts of numpy and matplotlib had been installed via your previous efforts.
You can tell whether you have any leftover pieces of numpy or matplotlib
from the *.deb files by looking in /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages
for "numpy" or "matplotlib".
Eric, the script was scrubbed. Does it land somewhere else?
