usetex=True and savefig(eps-file)

Hello list,

I encounter some strange error output including several "Permission denied"
when using usetex=True and saveing eps-pictures. My example is quite easy and
the output is attached. (Please notice the resulting figure looks as
expected.)

import matplotlib
matplotlib.rc('text', usetex=True)
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
plt.plot([0, 1], [0, 1])
plt.savefig("test_usetex_with_savefig_as_eps_file.eps")

I have no problems with png-files.

Can anybody confirm this behaviour?

Kind regards and thanks in advance for any hints,
Matthias

Hello list,

may be the last message got lost among the lots of mpl-mails. So I'd like to
ask you once more for comments. Can anyone confirm this behaviour or should
it be due to some wrong configuration on my computer?

Kind regards,
Matthias

I can confirm that this "works for me", so it is probably some sort of configuration difference.

Can you provide the error output? It would be useful to know what specifically it is being denied permission for.

I cannot reproduce this behavior. It looks like there is some problem
with your latex environment, not matplotlib. I suggest you ensure
latex is working properly before trying to use usetex.

Hi Darren,

thanks for your reply. The point is that saving pdf, jpg, etc. works fine but
in case I use ps or eps I get the long error output. Therefore I expected a
problem in the ps-backend.

Kind regards,
Matthias
