ubuntu deb

Try this: in your /etc/apt/sources.list and then add

    > deb http://peds-pc311.bsd.uchicago.edu binary/

    > and do

    >> sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get python-matplotlib-jdh

    > These are hoary debs that I maintain for our local system.
    > I'm certainly an amateur debian package maker, but they seem
    > to work and usually track matplotlib CVS fairly closely.

Just a word of warning -- these are not updated to the 0.86 release,
mainly because I need to make a numpy deb as well. I'll try and get
these updated soon.
