Question about install matplotlib package (tk.tcl file on ubuntu)

Hi,
  During the installation of the matplotlib package,
  I was told that the matplotlib is trying to replace the tk.tcl file
which belongs to the tk package

  Can anyone told me if this is a bug or feature

  Because of this conflict, I cannot install the package on my ubuntu

Thanks
Xuedong

Sorry for my stupid question:

What I am trying to run is the following command:

sudo checkinstall python setup.py install

I guess this maybe the problem between checkinstall and matplotlib

I don't know what to call it, but if it exists it is in the ubuntu package dependency system, not in matplotlib itself. Also, the version of matplotlib in ubuntu is pretty old, so I advise installing the latest release from source instead. See http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/.

OK, now it's more clear.

I suggest you install to /usr/local. That way you will get rid of this
conflict. You should be able to do it this way:

sudo checkinstall python setup.py install --prefix /usr/local

Hope this helps,

I agree with this advice. I wonder if you are running into this problem because you already have matplotlib installed as a Debian package. I'm mostly just curious as to the underlying cause...

I use the command as follows:
sudo checkinstall python setup.py install --prefix /usr/local

But the problem is the same.
It seems during the python install, python access the tk module, but the checkinstall
seems think it is modified so should be included in the package?

Maybe the solution is to not use checkinstall?

Yes, I would:

* Not use checkinstall
* prefix to /usr/local

HTH,
