PyPlot do not work on julia 0.6


#1

PyPlot used to work with previous RC versions. It errors with the release version. I tried deleting all files in ~/.julia/lib and ~/.julia/v0.6 and do a fresh start, just installing PyPlot and set ENV["PYTHON"]="". However, the same error still occurs. Does anyone have the same issue?

Sounds like you have conflicting numpy versions on your system and Python is getting confused about which one to load. Things to try:

  • Check you environment variables, to make sure you have nothing like PYTHONPATH defined that would confuse Python (since you are using the Conda python, you don’t want it to get confused with some other python installed on your system).

  • Since you are on Linux, try using the system Python instead of Conda. Do ENV["PYTHON"]="python"; Pkg.build("PyCall") and use your system’s packaging tools to install Matplotlib if it is not installed already.

Thanks a lot! This line of code works!
