remove matplotlib

Hi all

on my server (ubuntu 8.04 lts)
I installed matplotlib

and was that kind of installation who compile various files with gcc, gfortran and so on

now I wanna remove them
to install the new version…

could anyone help me with this? because I don’t wann to do something who could be bad to the server…

thanks in advanced…

Samuel,

Fortunately, matplotlib keeps all of the files that it compiles with the python files that it installs. On Ubuntu, I believe that the installation directory was /usr/lib/python2.?/dist-packages/matplotlib* (note, I don’t remember the exact version of python and the exact name of the matplotlib directory). If you remove that matplotlib directory and the corresponding matplotlib egg info file that is also in the dist-packages directory, that should get everything with respect to matplotlib.

Also, if you use basemap, remember that it is installed separately from matplotlib and it would also have to be removed in a similar manner, if you needed it removed.

I hope that is helpful.

Samuel,

Fortunately, matplotlib keeps all of the files that it compiles with the
python files that it installs. On Ubuntu, I believe that the
installation directory was /usr/lib/python2.?/dist-packages/matplotlib*

ubuntu 8.04 was still using site-packages; the switch to dist-packages was in 9.10, if I remember correctly. 8.04 uses python 2.5.

Also check the /usr/local path along with the /usr path. I'm not sure whether the installation from source put things by default in /usr or /usr/local. I always do installations from tarball in /usr/local so as to keep them separate from packages installed via the distro packaging system.

You can check where your matplotlib is installed with

$ python -c "import matplotlib; print matplotlib"

Cheers,
