Some time ago I installed (Debian sarge) the mpl 0.82 .debs
(by placing deb http://anakonda.altervista.org/debian packages/ in my /etc/apt/sources.list) .
Now I wanted to make a "clean" install of mpl 0.87. So what I did was
dpkg -l matplot
dpkg -P <all mpl packages>
and then removing everything found related to mpl (form various other from-source-installs).
After that I installed 0.87 as usual (python setup.py build/install).
Now testing my fresh install
I found the xlabel not centered but on the leftmost side of the axis (I reported this earlier for 0.86.2 ...)
I remembered that I haven't had this problem if I did *not* uninstall the 0.82 .debs before installing a newer version. So I removed 0.87, re-installed my 0.82 .debs and *after* that installed 0.87 and there was the xlabel, sitting centered where it should be.
Did anyone have similar issues or has an idea as to what might cause this?? Is 0.82 writing some (config) files that 0.87 should not read but does? Thanks for any hint.
