I have installed the following versions of packages
pygtk-2.8.4-1 and python does not exit but I had to go get libglib-2.0-0.dll,iconv.dll and intl.dll when I try to use GTKAgg backend. It still gets an error stating the procedure entry point g_assert_warning could not be located in the dynamic link library libglib-2.0-0.dll.
So I seem to be getting further but... does anybody know why python could not find the above dll's and how to they get installed? It would seem I need another package??

Subject: I can not get matplotlib to work on a windows xp professional machine
I have installed python 2.4.2 with numpy and scipy installed and when I try to import pylab, I get:
python.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Has any one seen this issue? I just started using python so am not sure what to do. I installed pygtk and freetype and set the matplotlibrc file to:
#### CONFIGURATION BEGINS HERE
# the default backend; one of GTK GTKAgg GTKCairo FltkAgg QtAgg TkAgg
# Agg Cairo GD GDK Paint PS SVG Template
backend : GTKAgg
numerix : numpy # numpy, Numeric or numarray
I really would like to use matplotlib but need help solving this problem if any one can help it sure would be great!
