I'm quite excited about usetex; it looks like exactly what I want.
I'm using matplotlib 0.86.2, dvipng 1.7, xpdf 3.00 and
gnu-ghostscript-8.16. I've got two issues.
First, I tried setting ps.usedistiller to xpdf, and got the error
'file not found: ~/tmp/<long hash here>.eps'. If I look, a '.ps' file
is there, which is probably what the distilling process means. Help?
Second: In the script below, I've edited tex_demo.py to reveal two
bugs. First, if I don't specify the right size axes, the top plot
label gets cut off, presumably because the height of the latex
fragment isn't calculated right or something. Second, I've increased
the amplitude of the function, making the y-axis ticks integral. With
this change, the y axis ticks are now back in the default matplotlib
font, instead of Computer Modern as when they were between 0 and 2.
Not sure how this could happen.
Thanks for your great work so far.
#ax = axes([0.1, 0.1, 0.8, 0.7])
t = arange(0.0, 1.0+0.01, 0.01)
s = 50 * cos(2*2*pi*t)+50
