I haven't seen that before. It works fine on my system (Windows ME)
and noone else has reported a win32 problem. The fact that it works
with jpeg and not png suggests a lib PNG problem. What version of
pygtk and GTK-Runtime are you using. If you are using pygtk-2.0.0 and
GTK-Runtime-188.8.131.52, then you should be OK. Have you installed an
earlier version of these libs, possibly creating a library conflict?
When you search for libpng, what turns up?
GTK 2.2.4 (Can't remember where I got it. There's been a few of these floating around.) Pygtk 2.0.0 from the link in matplotlib site.
Somehow my GTK runtime don't have the png, jpeg etc images libraries and I got them from the gnuwin32 sf site.
I followed the link in the matplotlib site and installed gtk 184.108.40.206 from the sf site and the problem goes away. This version has all the images libraries with them. I must bookmark it!
Another question: I've set the environmental variable AFMPATH in the registry via the control panel but matplotlib complains that the .afm files are not there.
H:\00work\00cvs\matplotlib\matplotlib\examples>python simple_plot.py -dPS
Error: Could not find any AFM files; please set AFMPATH to point to some readable adobe font metric files
This is a W2K system.
Thanks very much,
