Matt, in your first command, you used a backtick, which is different from a
single quote. A phrase quoted by a backtick will execute as a shell command
and put its output in place for the rest of the shell command.
Then, the reason you probably can’t find matplotlib is that you probably
don’t have the other repos turned on. I forget which repo matplotlib is in,
but it might be the “universe” repo. If you open the synaptic package
manager and view the available repositories (it is in the menu items, I
forget which), you can turn on other Ubuntu repos.
Let us know how that works for you.
