 # ticks at 0 and 2pi

Hello,

I'm trying to plot something from 0 to 2pi:

fig = plt.figure()
ax.set_ylabel(r'Poloidal Angle $\theta$')
ax.set_xlabel(r'Toroidal Angle $\phi$')

ax.set_xticks([0, 2 * math.pi])
ax.set_xticklabels(['0', r'$2\pi$'])
ax.set_yticklabels([r'$-\pi$', r'$\pi$'])
ax.set_yticks([-math.pi, math.pi])

ax.set_xlim(xmin=0, xmax=2 * math.pi)
ax.set_ylim(ymin= -math.pi, ymax=math.pi)

But unfortunately the ticks for x=2pi and y=pi are not shown. They do
show up if I move them a tiny bit:

ax.set_xticks([0, 2 * math.pi * 0.98])
ax.set_yticks([-math.pi, math.pi * 0.98])
But obviously this is ugly.

Is there a way to show the labels without moving the to the wrong
position and without extending the axis limits (since that introduces a
white border)?

Best,
-Nikolaus

I don't see the problem here, I get the ticks as specified. What
version of matplotlib are you using? What backend are you using?

Actually, now that I tried it again, it suddenly works. Strange... Sorry
for the pointless mail.

Best,
