Hello, I've just discovered matplotlib-0.40 (with linux),
> and going through the tutorial, I get an error (pasted at

This script runs on my system
from matplotlib.matlab import *
t = array([0,1,2,3], Float)
plot(t, t, 'r--', t, t**2, 'bs', t, t**3, 'g^')
set_dashes(self, dash_offset, dash_list)
175 dpi = self.drawable.dpi.get()
176 if dash_list is not None:
--> 177 dashes = dash_list*dpi/72.0
178 self.gdkGC.line_style = gdk.LINE_ON_OFF_DASH
179 dl = [int(math.ceil(val)) for val in dash_list]
TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for /: 'array' and 'float'
This looks a lot like a known bug with
from __future__ import division
and use of the division / operator with Numeric arrays. For that
reason I usually try and write
dashes = dpi/72.0*dash_list
dashes = dash_list*(dpi/72.0)
Apparently I forgot this time. Try the above and see if they help.
Please let me know.
