I recently decided to try Julia 0.6. I installed a Generic Linux binary (nightly build) on my machine. For plotting, I installed PyPlot, using my system’s installation of matplotlib (i.e., not Conda). Plotting works fine in IJulia, but I’m not able to plot from the REPL. Issuing a plot() command doesn’t create a window; it just prints a message like below in the REPL:
PyPlot.Figure(PyObject <matplotlib.figure.Figure object at 0x7fa8653aa210>)
I tried a ion() command before plotting, and also a show() command after plotting, but neither helped. I suspect this can have something to do with Matplotlib 2.0 (I use Debian testing and matplotlib was recently upgraded from version 1.5 to 2.0). Does anybody have any pointers as to how I should go about debugging this?
