WXAgg's accelerator requires `wx-config'.

I am trying to build mpl on a ubuntu Breezy box and I am getting the message:
WXAgg's accelerator requires `wx-config'.
What is wx-config and where do I get it? I am trying to build from
the 0.84 tarball.

Thanks,

Ryan

Install libwxgtk2.6-dev

Still bad news though I think. There is no package containing the
wxPython headers, so even with wx-config you can't compile on ubuntu.
There was a bug posted a while ago, but it doesn't look like it made
the release.

If anybody knows differently, please share.

There has been some discussion of this in this group recently, try searching the archives.

What is wx-config and where do I get it?

wx-config is a little program that returns the various include and linking directories needed to build something against the wxWidgets library, It should be distributed with the wxPython "devel" package. I don't know if there is an ubuntu package for that, but I'd look for it.

I don't know differently, but there is a set of rpms for wxPython-devel on the wxpython web site. maybe you could use that. It's also in the source tarball, of course.

The work-around (for debian sarge) is
  wget
http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/w/wxwindows2.4/wxwindows2.4_2.4.3.1.tar.gz
  tar xzf wxwindows2.4_2.4.3.1.tar.gz
  su
  mkdir /usr/include/wx/wxPython/
  cp wxwindows2.4-2.4.3.1/wxPython/src/*.h /usr/include/wx/wxPython/

For ubuntu it should work similarly
(you can also replace the wget by a corresponding apt-get command
fetching the source).

Charlies, Chris, and Arnd: thanks for your prompt responses to Ryan's question! I'll write up a cookbook entry on the topic tomorrow.

I've known about the missing wxPython headers for some time and have been corresponding with the Debian package maintainer about it. Apparently the headers weren't getting installed in 2.6 due to some Extreme Cleverness on the part of wxPython's "setup.py" and in 2.4 there wasn't even an attempt to install them. Last Thursday I filed patches on sourceforge, so hopefully this'll get fixed sometime soon.

I still haven't gotten any input on the ** (python:8999): WARNING **:
IPP request failed with status 1030 message. Anyone know why the
WXAgg backend is causing this and how to get rid of it.

Apparently, whatever this problem is, it is caused by calling pylab.figure(#)

In [1]: pylab.figure(1)

** (python:8692): WARNING **: IPP request failed with status 1030
Out[1]: <matplotlib.figure.Figure instance at 0xb517f02c>

I can recreate this without any script with just that one command. I
am running matplotlib 0.84, IPython 0.6.16_cvs, and scipy
0.3.3_309.4626 on ubunut Breezy 5.10.

Any thoughts?

Ryan

Sorry, I guess I missed your last email. I'll look into it. If the script is more complicated than "plot_something(); show()", could you please send a copy of it? Thanks.

Charlie,

IIRC, you were working on a Cocoa back-end for MPL a while back. How's that coming?

If it was someone else, please speak up!

Well, it is there and it works. There is no toolbar, and the
save image button is not implemented. I really haven't had access to
a mac in a while, so there hasn't been much development. I basically
figured out the hard part of how to do the agg buffer to NSImage
bridge. The rest of the perks should be pretty simple. The code is
in backend_cocoaagg.py and the nib files are in the backends folder.
